Following their sell-out successes of Sweeney Todd and Chess, Festival Players return to the ADC with their own interpretation of the smash-hit, multi-award-winning and totally irreverent musical The Producers adapted from Mel Brooks’ 1968 film of the same name. Brash, camp, totally over-the-top and yet at times surprisingly touching, the original musical won an unprecedented twelve Tony Awards (including Best Musical and Best Original Score) and was hailed as “a gift from the show-biz gods.” (Time Magazine).
Max Bialystock, once the king of Broadway is now notorious only for producing flops. Then he realises that if he could put on a show that’s so tasteless it’s guaranteed to fail, he could keep all the investment money! The all-singing, all-dancing spectacular Springtime for Hitler seems perfect – except there’s no accounting for taste! Fast-paced, colourful, brash and outrageously funny, The Producers is a show definitely NOT to be missed!
