The Producers

  • Show Information

Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan.
Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks.
Original direction and choreography by Susan Stroman.

When two theatrical schmucks discover that they can make more money with a flop than with a hit, they set out to produce the loser of all losers – a ridiculous musical about Hitler, guaranteed to close in one night!

Adapted from Brooks’ 1968 movie of the same name, and winner of a record-breaking 12 Tony Awards, The Producers is an absurd, gleefully irreverent, and fast-paced satiric comedy with a boisterous swing score parodying Golden Age Broadway musicals.

Footlights is Exeter University’s largest musical theatre society, now in its 31st year.
