Casting announced for The Full Monty
Fri 12 Oct 2012
FULL CASTING ANNOUNCED FOR
THE WORLD PREMIERE OF
THE FULL MONTY
BY OSCAR WINNER SIMON BEAUFOY
A Sheffield Theatres production directed by Daniel Evans
Based on the Fox Searchlight Pictures motion picture
The full cast is announced today for The Full Monty which is coming to The Mayflower Theatre, Southampton for one week only from 22 – 27 April 2013.
In 1997, a British film about six out-of-work Sheffield steelworkers who had nothing to lose, took the world by storm taking $256 million worldwide and becoming one of the most successful British films ever made. And now, the boys are back, live on stage, only this time, for them, it really has to be….THE FULL MONTY.
Simon Beaufoy, the Oscar winning writer of the film, has now gone back to Sheffield where it all started to rediscover the men, the women, the heartache and the hilarity of a city on the dole.
KENNY DOUGHTY (Sean in Sky TV’s Stella) is Gaz; CRAIG GAZEY (winner of the National TV Award for Graeme Proctor in Coronation Street) is Lumper; SIMON ROUSE (DCI Jack Meadows in The Bill, a role he played for almost 20 years) is Gerald; KIERAN O’BRIEN (Matt in Michael Winterbottom’s infamous film Nine Songs) is Guy; ROGER MORLIDGE (The English Patient, Shakespeare in Love) is Dave and SIDNEY COLE (Macduff in Macbeth directed by Max Stafford Clarke, Absolutely Fabulous ) is Horse.
Scott Anson, Tracy Brabin, Caroline Carver, Eamonn Fleming, Elaine Glover, Rachel Lumberg and Ian Mercer complete the cast.
The production will also feature the iconic songs from the film by Donna Summer, Rod Stewart, Hot Chocolate and Tom Jones.
This will be Simon Beaufoy’s first work for the theatre. His screen credits include winning the BAFTA for The Full Monty, 127 Hours, Salmon Fishing in Yemen and Slumdog Millionaire.
THE FULL MONTY is directed by Sheffield Theatre’s Artistic Director DANIEL EVANS. Since taking up the post, it has been one of his ambitions to bring The Full Monty back home to Sheffield.
Design is by ROBERT JONES, whose recent credits include Calendar Girls, Much Ado About Nothing starring Catherine Tate and David Tennant, Hamlet (Royal Shakespeare Company) and Rock’n’Roll (Royal Court, West End and Broadway).
Choreography is by STEVEN HOGGETT (Black Watch), lighting by TIM LUTKIN, sound by BEN and MAX RINGHAM with casting by SARAH BIRD.
This Sheffield Theatres production is presented by DAVID PUGH & DAFYDD ROGERS, the multi-award winning producers of ‘Art’, Brief Encounter, God of Carnage and Calendar Girls.
