Following the huge success, rave reviews and sell-out performances of Legally Blonde The Musical in October 2021, Rochdale Musical Theatre Company are excited to announce their next production, ‘The Producers’!
TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW for this hit Broadway musical comedy which is set to open at the magnificent Champness Hall in Rochdale Town Centre from
12th – 21st May 2022.
This laugh-out-loud all singing, all dancing comedy is the perfect remedy for those who have been longing for a night out at the theatre.
You may be familiar with the film version of The Producers – Mel Brooks’ classic 1967 cult comedy starring Gene Wilder, or more recently, the 2005 remake starring Will Ferrell, Matthew Broderick and Uma Thurman. As a big Broadway musical, The Producers set the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humour, winning a record twelve Tony Awards.
So, what’s the plot…? A down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered, nervous accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history thereby swindling their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit!
The show follows 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. 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 (known for Annie and Hairspray) and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks, The Producers definitely isn’t one to miss!
So, what are you waiting for? Get your family and friends together for a spectacular night of music and laughter and show your support for local theatre.
The Producers runs from 12th – 21st May 2022 at Champness Hall, Drake Street, Rochdale.
Tickets £16, available now at: www.whatsoccurrinrochdale.co.uk
