Well this certainly looks like a night we don’t want to miss out on!
The hit show The Full Monty is coming to Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn in February 2017 but tickets are already on sale from today (May 31st) and look like they will sell out quickly.
The ‘revealing’ hit stage show is based on the 1997 British film about six out-of- work Sheffield steelworkers, who with nothing to lose turn to the world of male stripping to make ends meet.
The movie took the world by storm and has become one of the most successful British films ever made.
The screenplay has been adapted by Simon Beaufoy, who wrote the Oscar and BAFTA winning film.
The audience will be singing along to all the iconic songs from the film by Donna Summer, Hot Chocolate and Tom Jones and the show has already won the UK Theatre Award for Best Touring Production.
Featuring a star studded cast, the audience can also expect to see a lot more of the actors than in any of their previous roles – particularly in the show stopping finale!!
The cast includes Gary Lucy, (EastEnders, Dancing on Ice) Joe Absolom (EastEnders, Doc Martin) and Andrew Dunn (Dinnerladies).
Soap fans will recognise Brookside’s Louis Emerick, and Hollyoaks stars Chris Fountain and Kai Owen complete the troupe.
Theatre Severn spokesman Pip Bayley said: “We’re very excited to be going on sale with the The Full Monty this week.
“It’s the latest in a series of large scale productions Theatre Series is bringing to county audiences.
“With The Sound of Music this month (our largest production to date), Rehearsal for Murder in June, Dead Sheep and Gangsta Granny still to come, and now The Full Monty, Theatre Severn really does continue to offer something for everyone.”
The Full Monty will be at Theatre Severn from February 6 to February 11 and tickets go on general sale on Tuesday. They are available by contacting the Box Office on 01743 281 281 or by visiting the venue’s website at www.theatresevern.co.uk
