While implied nudity is a requirement of the script, every attempt will be made to retain the integrity of the production while safeguarding the audience from indecent exposure (per the Town of Parker Municipal Code). The production team is committed to ensure everyone involved in the show feels safe and comfortable and will make every effort to shield all potential nudity from the audience by means of strategic costuming and lighting. Should you have any concerns regarding this, please let the audition panel know at the time of your audition.
Roles requiring implied nudity are:
• Jerry Lukowski
• Dave Bukatinsky
• Ethan Girard
• Harold Nichols
• Malcolm MacGregor
• Noah ‘Horse’ Simmons”
• Buddy Walsh (partial nudity).
The production team also needs to make sure that even if you are cast as a character that does not require implied nudity, that you are comfortable being around others who are required to be in minimal clothing. This will include not only on the stage but potentially backstage as part of the natural construct of putting on a show.
Six unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo, New York are miserable. They have no cash and no prospects. Meanwhile, they catch their wives and other women going crazy over male strippers. The six men then set out to make some quick cash showing off their "real man" bodies by becoming a team of male strippers. As the guys work through their fears, self-consciousness and anxieties they find strength as a group and overcome their inner demons
