You Can Leave Your Hat On…… The Full Monty at The Chequer Mead East Grinstead
The East Grinstead Operatic Society are currently putting the finishing touches to their production of the musical version of ‘The Full Monty’.
The show is so funny! Rehearsals usually end up with most of the cast in hysterics!
The story revolves around six unemployed men who try to become strippers to raise some money, mainly so that Jerry, the lead, can pay his alimony in order that he can still see his son.
They obviously have quite a few hang-ups about dancing naked in public and the story explores this very well. Luckily, our actors don’t have any problems with getting their kit off!
The story, although very close to the original film script, is set in Buffalo, New York. This is because it was created by American writers, but the cast are quite pleased by this as otherwise they would have had to try and produce Sheffield accents!
The show is on at the Chequer Mead Theatre in East Grinstead from the 15th to the 20th of September. Tickets cost £14- £15 and can be obtained from the box office on 01342 302000 or from their website
