The ever popular 1997 British comedy drama has made it to the big stage at the Theatre Royal Norwich, and it does not disappoint.

It follows the story of six steel workers from Sheffield who become inspired by the Chippendales and decided to give stripping a try in order to turn their lives around financially following the working crisis.

With a brilliant cast of familiar faces from TV, including Gary Lucy, Andrew Dunn, Louis Emerick, Chris Fountain, Anthony Lewis and Kai Owen. The whole show came together with both hilarious and heartfelt, moving moments.

The story subtly and briefly covers serious issues including family breakdowns, friendships, relationships and the impact of job loss following the death of the industry ¬¬ but it is all met with a hell of a lot of fun and laughter along the way.

Although the story mainly follows the men on their adventures, the female roles played an integral part too, delivered perfectly, as was the role of the main character Gaz’s son played by Reiss Ward.

The audience were keen to encourage the actors with clapping and singing, especially in the final, revealing scenes.

Everyone left with a smile on their face, and a giggle in their belly. If you haven’t got tickets yet, try your hardest to get one. A brilliantly uplifting and encouraging show, not to be missed.
