Preview: Full Monty at Whitley Bay Playhouse
Whitley Bay Operatic Society presents
The Full Monty
Whitley Bay Playhouse
Wednesday 15th - Saturday 18th February 2017
Seeing how much their wives enjoy watching male strippers during their Girls’ Night Out, unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo, New York come up with a bold way to make some quick cash. In the process they find renewed self-esteem, the importance of friendship and the ability to have fun. As the guys work through their fears, self-consciousness, feelings of worthlessness and anxieties (over everything from being overweight to child custody, bigotry to being gay), they come to discover that not only are they stronger as a group, but that the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to face their demons and overcome them. There is great heart to The Full Monty, and the ultimate themes expressed in the show, about taking charge of one’s life and following one’s dreams are great lessons for all of us.
And truth be told, through creative directing and staging, the final impact of The Full Monty can be achieved without ever losing your jockey shorts!
