It’s January first, and in January tradition, tickets are now on sale for The Full Monty, presented this April by Kilkenny Musical Society.
In this Americanized musical stage version adapted from the 1997 British film of the same name, six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers, low on both cash and prospects, decide to present a strip act at a local club after seeing their wives’ enthusiasm for a touring company of Chippendales. One of them, Jerry, declares that their show will be better than the Chippendales dancers because they’ll go “the full monty”—strip all the way. As they prepare for the show, working through their fears, self-consciousness, and anxieties, they overcome their inner demons and find strength in their camaraderie.
This year’s cast includes Ciaran Dunphy, Nicole Brennan, Fergal Millar, Sarah Brennan, Aidan Byrne, Elaine O’Hara, Declan Taylor, Rebecca Murphy, Eoghan Fingleton, Delia Larkin, Ben Warner, David Doyle, Dee Gibney, Jerry Gardner, Maeve O’Flynn, Edwina Cummins, John Cross and more. Directed by Christine Scarry.
The show runs at the Watergate from 10-16 April. Book now online or call the box office on 056 7761674.
