The Carnegie Opens Season with The Full Monty

The Carnegie is preparing to “bare it all” with the 2017-18 Theatre Series opener, The Full Monty, running weekends, August 12-27, 2017.

Directed by Matthew Wilson, The Full Monty tells the story of a band of steelworkers from Buffalo, NY who lose their jobs when the mill closes. The men cook up a hilarious scheme to reinvigorate their bank accounts and 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 the plan a reality.

“This show offers a lot of hilarity and all-out fun, while also telling a heart-warming tale about a man trying to be the kind of father his son deserves,” said Carnegie Theatre Director Maggie Perrino. “Not every show can have you roaring with laughter one minute, and be tugging at your heart strings the next. The Full Monty is truly a special evening of theatre.”

Performances of The Full Monty will run weekends August 12 - 27, Friday & Saturday evenings at 7:30pm, Sundays at 3:00pm. Tickets are $30, $27 for Carnegie Members, Northern Kentucky Chamber Members and Enjoy the Arts Members, $23 for students. Tickets can be purchased through The Carnegie Box Office, open Tuesday – Friday 12pm – 5pm, in person or by phone at (859) 957-1940, or online at Patrons seeking group or student tickets should call to make arrangements.
