ALTON, IL - Alton Little Theater is fully open and giving its "ALL" to entertain the Riverbend region with the July production of the Hit Musical, THE FULL MONTY, playing at the Showplace for eight performances, July 16th through 25th. And YES, the question of "will they" or "won't they" will be playfully "revealed" in the most anticipated closing number of any show. To be sure, the hit powerhouse team of Terrace McNally (RAGTIME) and David Yazbek (DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS) has created a stage script based on the cult favorite film of the same name --but the Stage version offers genuine affection, engaging melodies, and an appreciation for the physicality of "REAL" men -- that is just a perfect reflection of the times we're all living through right now. Six guys laboring as steelworkers are laid off and facing hard times, dealing with custody battles, bills up the hill, loneliness, and fear of growing older/useless -- SO they come up with a most ingenious solution that leaves just a little to the imagination!

Kurtis Leible, Shea Maples, Phill Gill, Ian Wonders, Jared Hennings, and Brennan Whittleman take on the principal ensemble (before they take anything off), Margery Handy, Devin Sadler, Mary Tomlinson, Megan Kay, and Melinda Call play the featured wives and family of the guys (just trying to guess what's going on), and Jake Tenberge, Orcinneo Gaines, Kelly Hougland, Alisa Ax, Madeline Eschbacher, Emily Schneider, Nathan Beilsmith and ShayVonda Mayes make up the versatile ensemble challenge of each playing 3-5 different characters during the 2-hour romp through the crazy-fun of this show!
