• Pac Rep presents R-rated ‘The Full Monty’

    PacRep Theatre kicks off this holiday season with Terrence McNally and David Yazbek’s Broadway smash hit musical, “The Full Monty.” The 10 Tony-Award nominee for Best Musical has two discount previews – Thursday and Friday, Nov. 20 and 21, opens Saturday night, Nov. 22, and runs through Dec. 21 at the Golden Bough Playhouse in Carmel-by-the-Sea.

    Based on the movie, this box office record-breaker tells the story of six unemployed steelworkers who hatch a desperate plan to get their lives back—a plan that requires them to triumph over their fears, their nerves and in a fund-raising strip show to pay their bills, their clothes!  Right to the end, audiences will be wondering if these lovable misfits will actually pull it off.

    With a raucous mix of razor-sharp humor and toe-tapping pizzazz, this heartwarming upbeat comedy played two successful runs at the Golden Bough in 2006 & 2007, but has not played in the region since that time. Note: This is an R rated production that contains brief male nudity, adult language and adult situations.

    Stephen Moorer directs The Full Monty, with musical direction by Don Dally and choreography by Susan Cable. The production marks the return of PacRep’s resident Actor’s Equity actors – John Farmanesh-Bocca as the lead character “Jerry”,  Michael D Jacobs as “Harold”, and Lydia Lyons as “Vicki”.  Also returning to the show are regional guest artists John Bridges as “Malcolm” and Pete Russell as “Horse”. Newcomers to the production include Stephen Poletti as “Dave”, Mikey Perdue as “Ethan”, and Donna Fredrico as the irascible piano player, “Jeannette”.

    Come watch as the boys “bare it all!” The Full Monty begins with two discount previews, Thursday and Friday, Nov. 20 and 21 at 7:30 p.m., opens Saturday, Nov 22, at 7:30 p.m., followed by a 2:00 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Nov. 23.  Performances continue Wednesday, Nov. 26, Thursdays, Dec. 4, 11 and 18, Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m. from Nov. 28 through Dec. 19, and 2:00 p.m. matinee performances on Sundays Nov. 30 – Dec. 14. Performances are at the Golden Bough Theatre, located on Monte Verde St. between 8th and 9th, Carmel-by-the-Sea.
