Photo Coverage: Curtain Call and Cast Party of 3-D Theatricals' FULL MONTY At Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center

Based on the hit motion picture, 3-D Theatricals of Orange County, California puts its award-winning spin on The Full Monty... one of Broadway's most hilarious, yet truly touching family musicals April 15 - 17 at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center in Redondo Beach, CA; and April 22 - May 8, 2016 at the historic Plummer Auditorium in Fullerton, CA. Official "press" openings in Redondo Beach and Fullerton will be Saturday, April 16 and Saturday April 23, respectively. The production is directed by 3DT Executive Producer and Artistic Director T.J. Dawson, with Choreography by Leslie Stevens; and Musical Direction by Conductor Corey Hirsch. Ryan Ruge serves as Assistant Director. Check out a first look at the opening night curtain call and cast party below!

ABOUT THE PRODUCTION: Music and Lyrics by David Yazbek. Book by Terrence McNally (based on the motion picture released by Fox Searchlight Pictures and written by Simon Beaufoy, produced by Uberto Pasolini and directed by Peter Cattaneo).

In need of quick cash and low on prospects, six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers come up with the outrageous idea of putting on a strip act after seeing the local women's wild enthusiasm for a company of touring Chippendales dancers. Short on time and with little talent or physical appeal, the gang promises their show will be better because they'll go "the full monty" and bare it all! In preparation for the big night, they work through their fears, self-consciousness, feelings of worthlessness and anxieties which, in turn, leads them to discover that not only are they stronger as a group, but that the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to face their demons and overcome them.

THE CAST: Allen Everman stars as "Jerry" and Matthew Downs as "Dave", along with David Engel* as "Harold", Rovin Jay* as "Horse", Tyler Miclean as "Malcolm", Nick Waaland as "Ethan", Candi Milo* as "Jeanette", Dante Marenco as "Nathan", Jeanette Dawson as "Georgie", Janna Cardia* as "Vickie", and Lauren Decierdo* as "Pam". Ensemble members include Candice Rochelle Berge, Justin Berti, Eric Ferguson, Jaycob Hunter, Natalie Iscovich, Gabrielle Jackson, Robert Johnson, Corky Loupé, Bree Murphy*, and James Stellos*.
