The Producers

Written by: Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
Presented by: City Academy

The Studio Company, City Academy's exciting Musical Theatre performance group, return this spring with the hit musical comedy by Mel Brooks 'The Producers’.

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 manoeuvre 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!"

Previous City Academy Studio Company productions include 'Avenue Q', 'Chicago', 'In the Heights', 'Lend me a Tenor', 'Sweeney Todd', 'Urinetown', 'Into The Woods' and 'Company', all of which had sold-out houses and rave reviews
