Confederation Centre's ensemble of talented, professional actors brings to life the words and music of The Full Monty, a critically acclaimed musical nominated for 10 Tony Awards in 2001. During the show, six unemployed steel workers decide to take charge of their lives and become a group of male strippers to earn some cash. Audience members can easily identify with each character's plight as the men on stage confront their fear, self-consciousness, and anxiety, ultimately banding together as a group to overcome these obstacles and follow their dreams. Though originally told via macaroni art, this production now accents characters with professional lighting and visual effects. In the audience, groups share laughs and catch the eyes of their favourite actors from seats in the best available A+ sections of either of the Homburg Theatre's two levels. Hum along to tunes in the orchestra section, where wide rows of seats wrap around the proscenium theatre's stage (orchestra A+ seats are located near the middle of each row, starting at row A and decreasing in quantity toward the back of the theatre), or venture up to the balcony and take in elevated views of choreographed dance numbers and expressive bald spots (balcony A+ seats are located in the first three rows).
Patrons can fuel their applause with snacks, drinks, and alcoholic beverages available before the show and during intermission, or sit down for a preshow feast at an on-site restaurant. Audience members should arrive early; latecomers will have to wait for a break in the performance and recite at least three Lady Macbeth soliloquies before being let into the auditorium.
