Synopsis: In this Americanized musical stage version adapted from the 1997 British film of the same name, six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers, low on both cash and prospects, decide to present a strip act at a local club after seeing their wives’ enthusiasm for a touring company of Chippendales. As they prepare for the show, working through their fears, self-consciousness, and anxieties, they overcome their inner demons and find strength in their camaraderie.

It's a raucous and touching piece of popular theatre that captures the mood of the 1980s, when a generation of men realized that their jobs-for-life in the steel industry were gone, and they were on the scrap heap.



Please note that people of all races, gender identities, and abilities are encouraged to audition for this inclusive and collaborative production. We will also be casting Understudies for Lead Roles & Ensemble Swing Roles. 

  • Jerry Lukowski: (M, 30s-40s, tenor) An unemployed mill worker, fighting to maintain his pride and the custody of his only son. All-American jock and the definitive “man's man”. Spontaneous. Very prideful. This character will be in a state of undress on stage.

  • Dave Bukatinsky: (M, 30s-50s, tenor) A natural follower, big hearted and generous. Insecure about his body, but devoted to his wife Georgie. This character will be in a state of undress on stage.

  • Ethan Girard: (M, 20s-40s, tenor) Has a dream to dance like Donald O’Connor. Also has a rather large, um, endowment (don’t worry, the audience won’t see it, just the other actors on stage). A little naïve. This character will be in a state of undress on stage.

  • Malcolm McGregor: (M, 20s-50s, tenor) Lonely guy, depressed and isolated, finds a new purpose in life through the plan to strip. A mama’s boy. This character will be in a state of undress on stage.

  • Harold Nichols: (M, 40s-60s, baritone/tenor) An ex-foreman, lying to his wife about his lack of a job, desperate to keep her from worrying. This character will be in a state of undress on stage.

  • Noah T Simmons (aka Horse): (M, African-American, 40s-60s, baritone/tenor) A great dancer, despite his advancing arthritis. A little cynical, but willing to give this thing a try. This character will be in a state of undress on stage.

  • Buddy Keno Walsh: (M, 20s-40s, tenor/baritone/bass-baritone) An excellent dancer, professional Chippendale’s stripper. Realistic about what he does and why.

  • Nathan Lukowski: (young M, 10-14) Starts by being tired of his dad’s lack of motivation, but ends up believing in his dad and supporting him. Non-singing role.

  • Pam Lukowski: (F, 20s-40s, mezzo-soprano) Jerry’s ex-wife, still cares for him but can’t live with his immaturity. Suing him for back child support.

  • Georgie Bukatinsky: (F, 20s-50s, soprano) Dave’s wife, salt of the earth, supportive and warm. Wishes Dave weren’t so insecure.

  • Jeanette Burmeister: (F, 40s-80s, Alto) Rehearsal pianist for the guys (so ability to play piano at least a little would be helpful), gritty, seen-it-all and then some, cracks jokes, still glamorous, a real dame.

  • Vicki Nichols: (F, 30s-60s, mezzo-soprano/alto) Harold’s wife, emotionally stronger than she seems, and definitely stronger than Harold thinks she is. Gentle, quiet demeanor – until she’s not.

  • Ensemble:  5-15 people of all ages and singing & dancing abilities. Will play multiple roles with brief lines and create the world of Buffalo in our story.  Some chorus work, some dance work. Understudies will likely also be cast in the ensemble.
