The”Monty Men” are in town ladies, and ready for a rowdy show!! The Windham Theatre Guild is excited to present The Full Monty, based on the well -known movie, with book by Terrence McNally, and music and lyrics by David Yazbek. Be the first in line when the show opens Friday, July 21st at the Burton Leavitt Theatre.
Based on the cult hit film of the same name, this ten-time Tony Award nominee, is filled with honest affection, engaging melodies and the most highly anticipated closing number of any show. While spying on their wives at a “Girls’ Night Out,” a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo sees how much they enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous, out of work and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold and unclothed way to make some quick cash, but in the process, they “expose” themselves in more ways than one. As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness and prejudices, the men come to discover that they’re stronger as a group, and the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to “let it go.” It’s a story full of heart. Right to the end, you’ll be wondering if these lovable misfits will really pull it off. This show is Rate R due to mature language and subject matter.
Ava Molnar is Director and Choreographer and Eric Ouellette returns as the show’s Musical Director
