Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the landmark film with a major national tour, Simon Beaufoy’s heartfelt play The Full Monty opens a week’s run at Lighthouse Poole on Monday 11 March 2024. 

As in the smash hit 1997 film, this brand-new production is a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs, laughs and heartbreak. There are no heroes here, just a group of lads trying to regain their dignity and pride.  

Gaz and his mates are down on their luck and feel they have been thrown on the scrap heap, but they are determined to fight back and bare a little more than they ever thought they would have to.  

This fast and funny play is still very much of our time, as again we are hit by a cost-of-living crisis, so book now to relive the music of the 1990s and have a great night out in the company of the lads as they work to put on the show of their lives.  

Starring Danny Hatchard (EastendersRidley Road, Our Girl, SCROOGE) as Gaz, Jake Quickenden (Footloose, Hair, X Factor, Dancing on Ice) as Guy and Bill Ward (Coronation Street, EmmerdaleEverybody’s Talking About Jamie) as Gerald, with Neil Hurst (Fat Friends the Musical, All Creatures Great and Small, Coronation Street) as Dave, Ben Onwukwe (The Shawshank Redemption, Professor T, Marcella) as Horse and Nicholas Prasad (Around the World in 80 Days, The Comedy of Errors, Doctors) as Lomper. 

Tickets go on pre-sale to Lighthouse Friends only on Wednesday 15 November and on general sale on Friday 17 November at
