Award winning Winchester Musicals and Opera Society return to Theatre Royal Winchester with their brand new production of The Producers.
Based on the 1968 classic cult comedy film, Mel Brooks’s musical The Producers is a laugh-out-loud, outrageous, crowd-pleasing farce that has been a smash hit since its 2001 debut.
The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars.
Together, the two set out to produce the worst musical ever to hit Broadway, with the worst script, the worst director, and the worst cast they can find; the catch is that they must raise two million dollars to finance the show, and they plan to take the money and head to Rio when the show inevitably closes after just one performance.
Too bad for Bialystock & Bloom that, against all odds, the show is a total hit!
With no shortage of show-stopping musical numbers and hilarious antics and Brooks’ signature humour keeping audiences in stitches, The Producers is definitely far from a flop.
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International.
