Tickets are on sale now to the Numerica Performing Arts Center’s 2018 Hot August Nights production of THE FULL MONTY. Producers Don Fox and Jaime Donegan will lead a local cast in 12 performances of the Broadway musical sponsored by Tom K. Michael, DDS, PS. The show will run for three weeks: August 2-4, 8-11, 15-18 with Wednesday and Thursday performances at 7:00pm, Friday and Saturday performances at 8:00pm, and a matinee on August 11 at 2:00pm.
The Full Monty follows a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo (played by Mark Wavra, Ernest Palmer, Brian Higgins, Matthew Pippin, David James, and John Mausser). After spying on their wives at a “Girls’ Night Out,” the group sees how much the ladies enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous, out of work, and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold and unclothed way to make some quick cash. In preparing, they find themselves extremely exposed; not merely physically but emotionally. As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness and prejudices, the men come to discover that they’re stronger as a group, and the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to “let go”. Parental guidance recommended.
Hot August Nights is known for its unique seating – and audiences can expect the same intimate seating for The Full Monty. Set entirely on the Numerica PAC stage in proscenium-style seating, ticket prices are $27-$45 with a VIP booths option for 4 people at $200.
