The Producers

The Producers

Mel Brooks’ hilarous musical comedy, The Producers is set to light up the Theatre On The Bay stage from 4 February – brought to you by Pieter Toerien Productions.

Directed by Joseph Pitcher (Matilda) and starring Alan Committie, Richard White, Raquel Munn, Terence Bridgett, Schoeman Smit, Earl Gregory, Devin Butterworth, Nathan Muller, Philip Schnetler, Joshua van Niekerk, Nicolette Fernandes, Michele La Trobe, Chloe Perling, Nadine Suliaman and Claire Glover.

The story follows Max Bialystock, the one­time king of Broadway producers hungry to strike it rich, and Leo Bloom, an accountant with dreams of someday becoming a theatre producer, as they discover that they could get richer by producing a flop than a hit. They  start by finding the worst show, worst director, and worst actors. When their new production, “Springtime for Hitler,” turns out to be a smash success, the plan is thrown off and the partners lives are thrown into chaos.

Musical direction is by Garth Tavares, choreography by Duane Alexander, set by Michael Mitchell and costumes by Penny Simpson.

Sound design is by Mark Malherbe, lighting design by Fahiem Bardien and image projection design by Kirsti Cumming.

Tickets are available from the Theatre On The Bay box-office (021) 438-3300, or Computicket.

The show will transfer to Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino theatre from 3 April.
