Maltby Musical Theatre Group proudly presents The Producers, at Rotherham Theatre from March 10th 2015

The Producers


Rotherham Civic Theatre from the 10th - 14th March 2015.

Join us for the highly acclaimed hit musical comedy based on the Academy award winning 1968 satirical film by Mel Brooks, the legendary US Comedian, Actor, Composer, Screen Writer and Film Director.

Set in New York in 1959, Theatre Producer Max Bialystock was once the king of Broadway, but recently all his shows have closed on opening night.  Max's life looks as though  it will turn around when he's visited by the downtrodden accountant Leo Bloom, who proposes a scheme tailor made for Producers who can only make flops - raise lots more money than you need and then make sure that the show is despised.  No one will be interested in it, so they can pocket the surplus.

The plot develops to this end, when Max and Leo produce a Broadway musical called "Springtime For Hitler" written by escaped Nazi Franz Liebken.  Then they get the insanely flamboyant Roger De Bris to direct.  Finally, they hire as lead actress the loopy Sweedish bombshell Ulla (whose surname has over 15 syllables!).  As opening night draws near, what can go wrong?  Well, there's no accounting for taste ...

This production features lots of musical numbers to accompany the hilarious story - audiences will be delighted thorugfhout an entertaining evening.

Adapted by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan.

Music and lyrics by Mel Brooks.
