Upbeat comedy takes the stage

Posted on February 17, 2017

MSUM’s School of Performing Arts theatre students will have to summon their bravest selves for the third performance of the academic year. The Full Monty opens Wednesday, Feb. 15, on the Hansen Theatre stage in the Roland Dille Center for the Arts.

A raucous pop-rock musical, The Full Monty tells the story of six unemployed steel workers who put together a strip act to raise money to pay their bills. The men model their show after the Chippendales, a famous male striptease act, but they take it a step farther by going “the full Monty” — completely nude. As the men prepare for the show, they work through their fears, self-consciousness, and anxieties, overcome their inner demons and find strength in their camaraderie. The show is based on the cult hit film of the same name, and tackles gender expectations and stereotypes with humor and honest affection.  Read the rest of this entry →
