The Full Monty
Makes Its Way To Newcastle Theatre Royal
The Full Monty
Newcastle Theatre Royal
Tuesday 27 February – Saturday 2 March 2024
Based on the 1997 smash-hit film, still very much of our time, The Full Monty visits Newcastle Theatre Royal Tuesday 27 February – Saturday 2 March 2024 promising laughter, heart and unforgettable moments.
The loss of Sheffield’s traditional steel industry and the subsequent unemployment leaves Gaz and his mates down on their luck and feeling like they have been thrown on the scrap heap, but they are determined to fight back... perhaps by baring a little more than they ever thought they would!
The UK tour of Simon Beaufoy’s The Full Monty, directed by Michael Gyngell and choreographed by Ian West, stars Danny Hatchard (EastEnders; Not Going Out) as Gaz and Jake Quickenden (X Factor; Hollyoaks) as Guy, alongside Bill Ward (Coronation Street; Emmerdale) as Gerald, Neil Hurst (All Creatures Great and Small; Casualty) as Dave, Ben Onwukwe (Marcella; Coronation Street) as Horse and Nicholas Prasad (RSC: The Comedy of Errors) as Lomper.
Further cast include Oliver Joseph Brooke, Katy Dean, Laura Matthews, Danny Mellor, Adam Porter Smith, Suzanne Procter, Alice Schofield, and Leyon Stolz-Hunter. The young actors playing the role of Nathan on tour will be Cass Dempsey, Theo Hills, Rowan Poulton and Jack Wisniewski.
This fast and funny play, still very much of our
time, showcases friendship, resilience and the power of self-discovery. A
poignant tale with hilarious mishaps, and a soundtrack including 80s and 90s
classics, The Full Monty was a firm audience favourite when it last
visited Newcastle in 2019 and promises once again to be a rollercoaster ride of
ups and downs, laughs and heartbreak!
