All the hysteria and hilarity of Mel Brooks’ cult comedy film comes to the stage as the Peterborough Operatic and Dramatic Society present 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, bilking their backers (all 'little old ladies') out of millions of dollars to put on the worst show in town.
Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit!
See 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 hilarity.
But along the way there’s glittering dance routines, show stopping numbers and side-splitting mischief!
