The Numerica Performing Arts Center announces its 2018 Hot August Nights performance will be THE FULL MONTY. Don Fox and Jaime Donegan return this summer to produce a 3 week run of the musical comedy based on the motion picture. Auditions for The Full Monty will be held January 22-23 at the Numerica Performing Arts Center.
In this 2001 Americanized musical comedy 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 will go “The Full Monty” (British slang for- 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. Parental guidance recommended.
Director Jaime Donegan will be holding Open Auditions for all roles on January 22 at 5:00pm for women and 6:30pm for men and the Numerica PAC. Call backs will be held on January 23 starting at 5:30pm. The cast includes 11 male and 8 female characters that are normal, everyday working class people. All those auditioning must be 18 years of age or older and prepared to sing Capella 16 bars of an uptempo rock or Broadway belt song of your choice. Those auditioning must be willing to commit to daily rehearsals in July 2018 and all performances in August 2018. For full audition information, visit www.NumericaPAC.org.
