A loveable band of unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo, NY cook up a hilarious scheme to reinvigorate their bank accounts and their self-confidence by becoming a male striptease act. But it won’t be easy…between learning to dance, dealing with body issues, and revealing the plan to their wives, the men must expose more than their bare-bottoms to make their plan a reality.

Based on the hit film of the same name, THE FULL MONTY is full of heart, humor, and the most highly anticipated closing number you’ll ever see at the theatre. Get ready to hoot and holler as the guys “let it go” in a finale performance you won’t forget!
