Drop everything – The Full Monty heads to Derngate this January

The hit stage adaptation of The Full Monty, which won the 2013 UK Theatre Award for Best Touring Production, returns to Royal & Derngate, Northampton, from Tuesday 15 to Saturday 19 January.

In 1997, a British film about six out-of-work Sheffield steelworkers with nothing to lose took the world by storm, becoming one of the most successful British films ever made. Simon Beaufoy, the Oscar- and BAFTA-winning writer of the film, has gone all the way with this hilarious and heartfelt adaptation that gets standing ovations every night, and features the iconic songs by Donna Summer, Hot Chocolate and Tom Jones, as heard in the film.

The all-star cast is led again by Gary Lucy (Luke Morgan in Hollyoaks, winner of Dancing On Ice) who has made the part of Gaz his own, along with Andrew Dunn (best known as Tony in Dinnerladies and for his regular appearances playing Alastair Campbell in Bremner, Bird & Fortune) as Gerald, Louis Emerick (Mike Thornberry in Coronation Street, Norman the Doorman in Benidorm) as Horse, Joe Gill (Finn Barton in Emmerdale) as Lomper, Kai Owen (Rhys in Torchwood) as Dave and James Redmond (Abs Denham in Casualty) as Guy.

Joining them will be Liz Carney as Jean, Amy Thompson as Mandy, Bryonie Pritchard as Linda and Keeley Fitzgerald as Sharon. Through these woman we see the other side of the story, the challenging journeys they face to stand by their men and how they ultimately take their hats off to them all.

This last ever UK tour of the hugely successful Sheffield Theatres’ production of The Full Monty takes the Derngate stage from Tuesday 15 to Saturday 19 January, at 7.30pm with matinees at 2.30pm on Wednesday and Saturday.
