Open Auditions for “The Full Monty”

Six former steelworkers in Buffalo (New York) are frustrated by their unemployment, having neither money nor prospects. They see
their wives and other women going crazy over male strippers and decide to make some quick cash by becoming a team of male

anxieties and self-consciousness, by the growing strength of their camaraderie.
