After premiering Saturday, May 31, at the Sebastiani Theatre for a gala fundraising performance, “The Full Monty” joins the summer series of Sonoma Theatre Alliance shows.
“The Full Monty” continues June 7-29 at the Sonoma Community Center at Andrews Hall on the Rotary Stage.
Directed by Cat Austin, founder of the Experiential Theater Company, “The Full Monty” welcomes a stunning cast and crew including a Broadway star, a performer from the “Bye Bye Birdie” national tour, an actor who starred with Sally Struthers in “The Full Monty,” another award-winning Actors Equity performer reprising his “Full Monty” role, a musical director fresh from the Broadway production of “Motown the Musical” and “Wicked” and more.
“I’m so excited for the cast and crew we’ve assembled,” said Austin. “It’s the first time I’ve produced a show in which four of the actors have played their roles before and at such a high level. With this production, ETC! is taking a major step toward bringing regional theater to downtown Sonoma.”
“The actors have such a breath of knowledge about the show, which fits perfectly with my ‘think tank’ style of directing. I require my actors to bring their ideas forward, so we have all of this amazing creative input, and my job as director is not to harness it but somehow channel it so we end up with a show that is so much bigger than the sum of it's parts,” she continued.
