Telly hunks set to do the Full Monty at HMT

Dancing on Ice winner and TV hunk Gary Lucy is to lead an all-star cast for The Fully Monty at His Majesty’s Theatre next spring.

Also baring all in the stage-version of the smash-hit 90s movie about a group of out-of-work Sheffield steelworkers will be Andrew Dunn, Louis Emerick, Rupert Hill, Martin Miller and Bobby Schofield.

The 1997 British film took the world by storm, becoming one of the most successful British movies ever made, and the Oscar-winning writer of the film, Simon Beaufoy, has gone all the way with this hilarious and heartfelt adaptation.

The production will be staged at His Majesty’s Theatre from Monday, March 30, to Saturday, April 4, next year and tickets are available online at www.aberdeenperformingarts.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.

Aberdeen Performing Arts press manager Joyce Summers said the theatre was delighted to be welcoming the big name cast for a week-long run.

She said: “Gary, Andrew and Louis are such well-known and popular faces, whom we are used to seeing on our TVs at home.

“Their arrival in The Full Monty will give fans the chance to see even more of them in the flesh . . . in the best possible taste, of course!”

The Full Monty is Simon Beaufoy’s first work for the theatre but his screen credits include winning the BAFTA for The Full Monty, 127 Hours, Salmon Fishing in Yemen, Slumdog Millionaire and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

This new production is directed by award winning Roger Haines, whose recent credits include the world premiere of the musical The Go-Between.
