Bialystock and Bloom! Those names should strike terror and hysteria in anyone familiar with Mel Brooks’ classic cult comedy film. Now as a big Broadway musical, “The Producers” once again
Bialystock and Bloom! Those names should strike terror and hysteria in anyone familiar with Mel Brooks’ classic cult comedy film. Now as a big Broadway musical, “The Producers” once again sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. It is a truly “boffo” hit, winning a record twelve Tony Awards and wowing capacity crowds night after night.
The NTPA Repertory Theatre cast includes veterans from the region’s top professional theatres, Disney productions and graduates from some of the country’s best performing arts schools. Leading the cast for “The Producers” will be Dylan White as Max Bialystock and Aaron Campbell as Leo Bloom, as well as Sarah Boone and Haven Isom as Ulla Inga Hansen Benson Yansen Tallen Hallen Svaden Swanson. Our stellar cast also includes Bonnie Algar Grugle, Sirena Bingham, Daniela Castellanos, Sean Cohn, Walter Cohn, Vicki Cravens, Allison Daniels, Breanna Douglas, Mike Fulk, Jordan Gibson, Cate Ginsberg, Jack Grimes, Sadat Hossain, Tori Micaletti, Danny Miranda, McKenna Murdock, Makenzie Niesman, Jerrin Prince, Sophie Pritzkau, Jason Rasor, Heather Rooks, Roxi Taylor, Hunter Wilkerson, Stephen Wykle and Jenn Zigler.
The creative team for this production includes NTPA Repertory Theatre Program Director Daniel Dean Miranda, Director Peg Waldschmidt, Choreographer Caitlin Galloway, and Stage Manager Jessica Stevens.
“The Producers” opened on Broadway in 2001 and won a record-breaking twelve Tony Awards. The show closed in 2007 after wowing capacity crowds night after night with more than 2,500 performances. With a hilarious book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) along with music and lyrics by Brooks, “The Producers” skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners with its modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor.
Based on the Academy Award-winning 1968 film, “The Producers” is a musical comedy in which a struggling Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby tricking their sponsors (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. They set out to find the worst director, the worst script, and the worst cast imaginable. However, one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit!
All performances will be held in the Rodenbaugh Theatre at North Texas Performing Arts – Plano, which is located in The Shops at Willow Bend at 6121 W Park Blvd. Suite B216. The recommended age for the audience is 13 and up due to mature content.
