FIVE men are the talk of the town after they bared all onstage for the opening night of a show.
Last night saw the opening of Stamford Amateur Musical Society’s production of The Full Monty.
The lead actors stripped off in front of a packed audience at Stamford Corn Exchange, and have already had rave reviews.
Chairman Adrian Worgan, who plays the lead role of Dave in the show, said: “The first show was absolutely fantastic, the audience loved it.
“We seem to be the talk of the town this morning. The buzz has been amazing and we’ve had loads of messages saying how much people enjoyed the show.
“We’re overwhelmed by the response.”
Adrian is joined onstage by Andrew Cleaver, Mike Hammond, Guy Sharman and Mark Anthony Philips in the classic production, which follows five unemployed men who hatch a scheme to start a striptease act.
He added: “There was some trepidation before the curtain opened but once we were on stage we all got into our roles and it all went very smoothly.
“The striptease scene went well, and I don’t think the audience was disappointed.
“We’re all looking forward to the next show and we hope the audiences will get bigger and bigger.”
Further shows are being held until April 16, with performances nightly at 7.30pm and a matinee at 3.30pm on the Saturday.
Tickets are selling fast but are still available for £15 (£12) from the theatre box office on 01780 766455, or online at www.stamford-corn-exchange.co.uk.
