A hit Broadway musical is coming to the Masque Theatre this July.

The Producers, produced by Constantiaberg Theatre Players will be showcased at the Masque Theatre from Wednesday 4 to Saturday 21 July.

The Producers is a hilarious musical comedy that has taken Broadway and the West End by storm, winning a record-breaking 12 Tony Awards and 3 Olivier Awards.

Based on the 1968 film, Mel Brooks’ musical The Producers is a laugh-out-loud, outrageous, crowd-pleasing farce that has been a smash hit since its 2001 stage debut and 2005 film reprise.

On the background of the post-war 50s, fading Broadway producer Max Bialystock is desperate to get to the top of his profession again.

He finds an unlikely ally in mousy accountant Leo Bloom, who hypothesises that one could make far more money with a flop of a show than with a hit.

Together, the two set out to produce the worst musical ever to hit Broadway, with the worst script, the worst director, and the worst cast they can find; the catch is that they will raise two million dollars to finance the show, and they plan to take the money and head to Rio when the show inevitably closes after just one performance.

Too bad for Bialystock and Bloom that, against all odds, the show is a total hit!

With dozens of big and bit parts alike, no shortage of show-stopping musical numbers, and Brooks` signature humour keeping audiences in stitches, The Producers is definitely far from a flop.

Tickets to the show cost R120.
