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. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive "Springtime for Hitler"), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends.
With a truly hysterical book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan ( Annie ) and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks, The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an "equal opportunity offender!"
If cast in The Producers there is a $30 Production Fee.

Music On Stage, a certified 501(c)3 charitable organization is seeking your help. As we enter our 61st Season of producing Quality Musical Theatre in the Northwest Suburbs we are trying to reach our goal of $2500 to offset some of the production costs for our current season. The costs of producing a musical of this size and quality can cost $23,000.00+. This includes the rights to produce the show as well as rental of the theatre facility, scenery, costumes, props etc. as well as paying directors, choreographers, costumers, designers and Orchestra members. Please help in any way you can so we can continue producing blockbuster musicals in the Northwest Suburbs.
