Full Monty opens Guelph Little Theatre season

Guelph Little Theatre opens a new five-play season on Friday Oct. 12 with a production of The Full Monty, the story of a group of working-class men who have been laid off and have decided to bare all to raise money.
The show has 8 p.m. performances on Oct. 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27, with 2 p.m. Sunday matinees on Oct. 14 and 21.
“The story is really about how they put the show together, mostly with courage, and only a little talent,” says GLT’s website. “So it’s about naked men, their courage, their loving wives and the tease of full frontal exposure.”
This show is followed by GLT’s annual Christmas season show. This year it’s Snow White – All Wrong, which runs Nov. 30 to Dec. 16.
The regular season resumes Jan. 25 to Feb. 9 with a production of the powerful drama Doubt: A Parable. Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students.
Next up is well-known Canadian playwright Norm Foster’s play Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun, which runs April 12-17. The moving story of a friendship between a mentally challenged man and a pregnant young woman is also a story about people finding the nerve to take responsibility and about persevering against the odds, GLT says. “And finally, it is a story about relationships born out of hardship.”
The season wraps up from May 24 to June 8 with a production of Calendar Girls, which might be seen as a bookend to the season opener, The Full Monty. Based on a true story, it’s about a group of women, members of the Britain’s Yorkshire Women’s Institute, who spark a global phenomenon by persuading one another to pose for a charity calendar with a difference, GLT says. “As interest snowballs, the Calendar Girls find themselves revealing more than they’d ever planned.”
