The cast currently rehearsing for a charity performance of The Full Monty on the Kent coast knew the show would not be without its challenges.
They've got just a few weeks to get it right, they've set themselves an ambitious fund-raising target, and then there's the issue of stripping off in public.
But they did not expect to be 'torn off a strip' by the Catholic Church.
Watch the full report by John Ryall:
Herne Bay Pier was open to the public in a chilly north wind, so they kept their clothes on for this rehearsal of The Full Monty, based on the hit TV show.
But on the night - watched by a ticket-only adult audience - they will be baring all.
And that, says the priest at this church in neighbouring Whitstable, means the Full Monty should come to a full-stop.
In his letter, Father Kevin St Aubyn says this type of dancing is against the Christian teachings.
He urges the cancer charities set to benefit - and the managers of the pier - to think again.
Their answer? The show goes on. Listen to what the cast and crew had to say:
Back at the pier they're less, the pubic are less...buttoned-up. Listen to what they had to say:
Father Kevin's intervention has given the show- scheduled for August the 11th- a lot of unexpected exposure.
It's on course to sell out, raising up to £10,000 to combat the cancers that have directly affected many members of this cast.
