Ordinary guys with ordinary lives – dance the Full Monty!!

The Bev Jones Music Company

Wednesday 27 March to Saturday 30 March 2019

They may not be young, they may not be pretty, they may not be very good, but they're there, and for one night only, with nothing to lose, they're daring to go The Full Monty!

Six unemployed steel workers form a male striptease act. The women cheer them on to go for "The Full Monty" - total nudity.

Life is tough, money is tight, and the wives and girlfriends are nagging to see more money! What can an ordinary bloke do? Follow in the steps of The Chippendales? And guess what? The women will pay to see it? Only one problem – these guys haven't seen a gym EVER. Some don’t even take their clothes off at home – never mind in public!

Join this fun, fun show, with its powerful songs, and fantastic dance moves and leave the theatre feeling the urge to “rip off your own and join in“!!
