The smash hit musical-comedy The Producers is coming to the Theatre on the Bay with a top-drawer cast.
Based on the hilarious 1968 film, Mel Brooks’ The Producers is a laugh out-loud, outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical-comedy that has been a smash hit since its 2001 debut. It’s the winner of the most Tony Awards ever – 12 awards, including Best Musical.
Fading Broadway producer Max Bialystok (played by Alan Committie) is desperate to get to the top of his profession again, and finds an unlikely ally in mousy accountant Leo Bloom (Richard White), who predicts that one could make far more money with a flop of a show than with a hit. Together, the two set out to produce the worst musical ever to hit Broadway. Unfortunately for them, their show – called Springtime for Hitler – is a huge hit!
And with no shortage of show-stopping musical numbers, and Brooks’ signature humor keeping audiences in stitches, The Producers is definitely far from a flop.
The cast also features Raquel Munn, Terence Bridgett, Schoeman Smit, Earl Gregory, Devin Butterworth, Nathan Muller, Philip Schnetler, Joshua van Niekerk, Nicolette Fernandes, Michele La Trobe, Chloe Perling, Nadine Suliaman and Claire Glover. It’s dircted by Joseph Pitcher, with choreography by Duane Alexander and musical direction by Garth Tavares.
