AUBURN — Lewiston-Auburn Community Little Theatre’s production of “The Full Monty” will be staged October 2-11, under the direction of Ron Bouffard.

The play with book by Terrence McNally and music and lyrics by David Yazbek earned multiple Tony Award nominations and Drama Desk Awards. It follows the story of six unemployed Buffalo, N.Y., steel workers who are low on cash, prospects and self-esteem. They decide to “Let It Go” and put together a strip tease act to earn some extra dough.

The Monty women are just as important as the men as they are the springboard and back story for everything their men are doing.

Supporting roles are carried by Christopher Hodgkin as Malcolm MacGregor; Jonathan Carr as Harold Nichols; James Kramlich as Ethan Girard; Roland Davis as Noah “Horse” T. Simmons; and Zachary Fisher as 12-year-old Nathan Lukowski.

The male ensemble includes Jason Mungin as Buddy “Keno” Walsh; Kenneth Mansur as Teddy Slaughter; Paul Bell as Reg Willoughby; and Phil Vampatella as Tony Girodano. Bryan Robicheau also appears in the ensemble.

Rhonda Trask and Cheryl Reynolds have the lead roles of Georgie Bukatinsky and Vicki Nichols. Supporting roles include Angela Reed as Pam Lukowski; Patty Vieta as Jeanette Burmeister; Michelle Moreau as Estelle Genovese; Tracy Kapocius as Joanie Lish; Tammy Fisher as Susan Hershey; and Linda Sherwood as Molly MacGregor. Reinette Bryant, Bridget Fitzgerald and Debbie Mansur appear in the women’s ensemble.
