Audition Announcement: The Full Monty


Title of Show: The Full Monty


In this Americanized musical stage version adapted from the 1997 British film of the same name, six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers, low on both cash and prospects, decide to present a strip act at a local club after seeing their wives’ enthusiasm for a touring company of Chippendales. As they prepare for the show, working through their fears, self-consciousness, and anxieties, they overcome their inner demons and find strength in their camaraderie.

  • Jerry Lukowski (M, 20s-40s, tenor). Earnest, desperate, yet still holding on to hope that he can turn his life around.  Loves his ex-wife Pam and their son Nathan.
  • Dave Bukatinsky (M, 20s-50s, tenor). A natural follower, big hearted and generous.  Insecure about his body, but devoted to his wife Georgie.
  • Ethan Girard (M, 20s-40s, tenor). Has a dream to dance like Donald O’Connor.  Also has a rather large, um, endowment (don’t worry, the audience won’t see it, just the other actors on stage).   A little naïve. 
  • Malcolm McGregor (M, 20s-50s, tenor). Lonely guy, depressed and isolated, finds a new purpose in life through the plan to strip.  A mama’s boy.
  • Harold Nichols (M, 40s-60s, baritone/tenor) An ex-foreman, lying to his wife about his lack of a job, desperate to keep her from worrying.
  • Noah T Simmons (aka Horse) (M African-American, 40s-60s, baritone/tenor) A great dancer, despite his advancing arthritis.  A little cynical, but willing to give this thing a try.
  • Buddy Keno Walsh (M, 20s-40s, tenor/baritone/bass-baritone). An excellent dancer, professional Chippendale’s stripper.  Realistic about what he does and why.
  • Nathan Lukowski (young M, 10-14). Starts by being tired of his dad’s lack of motivation, but ends up believing in his dad and supporting him.  Non-singing role.
  • Pam Lukowski (F, 20s-40s, mezzo-soprano). Jerry’s ex-wife, still cares for him but can’t live with his immaturity.  Suing him for back child support.
  • Georgie Bukatinsky (F, 20s-50s, soprano) Dave’s wife, salt of the earth, supportive and warm. Wishes Dave weren’t so insecure.
  • Jeanette Burmeister (F, 40s-80s, Alto) Rehearsal pianist for the guys (so ability to play piano at least a little would be helpful), gritty, seen-it-all and then some, cracks jokes, still glamorous, a real dame.
  • Vicki Nichols (F, 30s-60s, mezzo-soprano/alto). Harold’s wife, emotionally stronger than she seems, and definitely stronger than Harold thinks she is.  Gentle, quiet demeanor – until she’s not.
  • Ensemble:  5-15 people of all ages and singing & dancing abilities.  Will play multiple roles with brief lines.  Some chorus work, some dance work.
