Camelot Theatre is proud to present its upcoming Tony-Award Winning musical: Mel Brooks’ “The Producers,” directed by Artistic Director Livia Genise and starring David King-Gabriel, Kelly Hammond and Peter Wickliffe.
Bialystock and Bloom! Those names should strike terror and hysteria in anyone familiar with Mel Brooks’ classic cult comedy film. As a Broadway musical, winning a record twelve Tony Awards and wowing capacity crowds night after night, The Producers once again set the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. The plot is simple: 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 thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! At the core of this insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. Rated PG-13 for OUTRAGEOUSNESS!!
“The Producers” previews March 19 and 20th at 8 p.m., opens March 21 and runs through April 20. Reservations are recommended. The Wednesday, March 19 performance is a fundraiser for Siskiyou Singers.
