There’s so much more to The Full Monty on stage than the final few minutes.

There was a busy house at the Alhambra Theatre on Monday evening for the opening night of the show’s Dunfermline run.

It looked as if it was going to be a rowdy audience as the lights went down and the wolf whistles began as soon as Gary Lucy - who took on the role of leading man Gaz - came on stage.

Fortunately the screams and whistles calmed to allow the cast’s lines to be heard.

But, of course as you’d expect, they were not to remain so sub-dued and - particularly in the second half - they were to return at full pitch.

The atmosphere in the theatre was electric and one where all those gathered - including the men - were there to have a great night.

And an evening of great entertainment was exactly what the cast and crew provided.

Although filled with many laughs, this play is a bit of an emotional rollercoaster that you’re taken on by an incredibly talented cast.

There was not one weak link among them, and it was easy to feel like you were on the desperate journey with each and every one of them.

It’s a wonderful journey to be taken on for a few hours, and you will leave the theatre with a smile on your face, so if you get the chance it’s definitely one to see.

The Full Monty runs at the Alhambra Theatre in Dunfermline until Saturday.
