 Full Monty Cast Announced!


An all-star cast headed by Gary Lucy has just been announced for a new production of The Full Monty coming to bare all at Newcastle Theatre Royal for one week only this Autumn, 27 October – 1 November.

Released in 1997, British film The Full Monty - about six out-of-work Sheffield steelworkers with nothing to lose - took the world by storm and went on to become one of the most successful British films ever made. The show, just like the film, features the iconic songs from the film by Donna Summer, Hot Chocolate and Tom Jones.

Martin Miller (Dave) recently played Hitchcock in the New York production of The Lovesong of Alfred J Hitchcock, and Rupert Hill (Guy) played Jamie Baldwin in Coronation Street. Bobby Schofield, one of the most exciting young actors around, makes his stage debut as Lomper. Further casting to be announced.



The Full Monty is Simon Beaufoy’s first work for the theatre. His screen credits include winning the BAFTA for The Full Monty, 127 Hours, Salmon Fishing in Yemen, Slumdog Millionaire and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The original production of The Full Montywon the UK Theatre Award for Best Touring Production and was directed by Daniel Evans.
