Nathan Candidates must be at least 10 years old.
Monty Men: If you are auditioning for any one of these 6 roles, or Keno, you need to be comfortable with your body; enough to perform on stage in your underwear and eventually a g-string Well… The moment at the end of the show begs the question: “Will they go all the way?” And you must be prepared to tease the audience to be considered for those roles: Roles that include this final number and the FULL MONTY are indicated by (**). Please note: Trust is a key word for our production – you will be taken care of respectfully and our final moment (The Full Monty **), will be powerful, and cheered on by the audience. Wear clothing to auditions that reveals your overall body shape accurately. These are “real men”- mill workers, not club dancers- so again, all types are encouraged, and you do not need to be a good dancer, but able to execute choreography is required.
Women: The women's roles are powerful, pivotal, and memorable with slammin’ songs. There is no heart without connection - and the women are critical in creating the circle.
Male Roles **
**Jerry Lukowski : An unemployed mill worker. 30-40. Jerry is a complex emotional character with serious heart and charisma, and genuine tenderness for his son – a regular guy. Vocal Range: Bari-tenor with falsetto if needed
Nathan Lukowski: Jerry's young son. Age 12. “12 years old going on forty” but young looking for his age. Nathan can be stoic, sincere, and charming, but ultimately real as he deals with his parents' custody battle. PARENTS: PLEASE READ ENTIRE SCRIPT of this musical's BEFORE your young man auditions. The director intends on examining the use and/or editing of the adult language and themes for its production of “The Full Monty”. Parents should also be aware that “The Full Monty” also contains partial nudity (by the adult actors), and language. Vocal Range: age appropriate.
** Dave Bukatinsky: An unemployed steelworker. 30-40. He struggles with unemployment and its effect on his marriage. A lovable, good-natured soul, with body weight and self-esteem issues. Must be comfortable enough with your belly to proudly wield it in all its glory. Vocal Range: Bari-tenor with falsetto if needed.
** Malcolm MacGregor: An unemployed mill worker. 25-40. His frank self-assessment neglects to mention his sweetness and sincerity. Malcolm transforms from desperately lonely to deeply loving. Vocal Range Tenor.
** Ethan Girard: An unemployed steelworker. 25-40. Ethan remains an optimist while struggling with unemployment and friendship. He energetically attempts wallwalking a la Donald O'Connor's 'Singing In The Rain' acrobatics. He loves simply, and openly. Good physical comedic role. Body type: farm boy handsome. Vocal Range: High baritone/tenor.
** Noah “Horse” T. Simmons: A retired African American mill worker. 40-50+. Gentle demeanor. Seemingly, his “break-dancing” days are over until he breaks out. Excellent mover with great deadpan comedy. Vocal Range: Baritone/Tenor.
** Harold Nichols: An unemployed mill supervisor. 35-60+. He is a doting, prideful husband who is determined to keep his wife be-decked in upper middle-class luxury – in spite of 6 months of unemployment. Aloof at first, his dance skills are what finally, and arduously, brings “Hot Metal” alive. Vocal Range: baritone/tenor.

Vicki Nichols: Harold's wife. 30-55. Charming and energetic, she loves Prada ensembles. But, not more than she loves her husband. Flamboyant on the surface, her love and understanding are real. Classy, but easily one of the girls. Comedic triple-threat. Vocal Range: High alto/broad mezzo belter.
Georgie Bukatinsky: Dave's wife. 30-40. A warm, down-to-earth soul that isn't afraid to kick up her heels. Her exuberance opens the show and sets the place and mood perfectly!

Jeannette Burmeister: The piano player. 40-50+. She's seen it all and been there and done that. She’s got show-biz running through her blood. You can't shock her, but she'll shock you as she says what's really on her mind! Shows up with a piano to play for the guys totally out of the blue. Vocal Range: Low alto belter.
