The world famous musical, The Producers, is on its way to Brisvegas! Produced by Savoyards Musical Company, this amateur production will run from 23 September til 7 October at the Iona Performing Arts Centre, Wynnum.
This production showcases sensational local amateur talent, the best that Brisbane has to offer; something we all should support more often! Featuring 27 performers, accompanied by a live orchestra, this production of The Producers will have audiences rolling in the aisles.
This musical comedy by Mel Brooks tells the story of a ‘down on his luck’ Broadway producer and his accountant who creates a masterful scheme to produce the most unsuccessful musical in history as way of cheating their financial backers out of millions of dollars. Complications arise when the musical becomes a success!
In a series of events where everything that can go wrong, does go wrong, this masterful Brooks script has the audience riding the main characters’ wave of success and failure.
The Producers originally hit Broadway in 2001 and featured Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick. It won a staggering 12 Tony Awards. Since then countless productions have featured throughout the world.
This Savoyards production is directed by acclaimed Gabriella Flowers. The Musical Director is fifty-year industry veteran Mark Beilby and the Choreographer is talented Hannah Crowther.
The well known Savoyards Musical Theatre Company is the oldest continuously running musical theatre company in Brisbane. This means they know how to put on a memorable show!
