Craig Gazey does The Full Monty

The Full Monty cast
Craig Gazey, who played Graeme Proctor in Coronation Street, is to star in the world stage premiere of the Full Monty when it starts in Bristol.

Craig will be playing the part of Lomper, which ex-Corrie actor Steve Huison (Eddie Windass) played in the film.

Producers will be trying to recapture the success of the smash-hit 1997 comedy film about six out-of-work Sheffield steel workers who became male strippers to make ends meet, which took £160 million worldwide to make it one of the most successful British films ever made.

It will star Kenny Doughty, from Sky TV's Stella, as Gaz, former Coronation Street actor Craig Gazey, as Lomper, Simon Rouse, best known for his portrayal of DCI Jack Meadows in The Bill, as Gerald, as well as Kieran O'Brien and Roger Morlidge, who have appeared in Coronation Street, as Guy and Dave, and Sidney Cole, of Class Act, as Horse.

It will be a first work for the theatre for writer Simon Beaufoy, whose screen credits include The Full Monty, 127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire, for which he won an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA award.
For tickets call 0844 871 3012.
