Presented in the Lakewood Playhouse's thrust configuration, with seating facing the stage as well on both of its sides, our production of "THE PRODUCERS - A (new) MUSICAL BY Mel Brooks" will drop you right into the middle of this Hilarious Comedy Musical that holds the RECORD for the MOST TONY AWARDS for a MUSICAL!
The Lakewood Playhouse is proud to announce that this production will mark the return of director CASI PRUITT, who has directed such past hit shows as "OLIVER!", "PRIDE & PREJUDICE" and "THE RAINMAKER!" It will be musically directed by DEBORAH L. ARMSTRONG who past shows at our theatre include "SPAMALOT", "THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE" and "AMERICAN IDIOT!" It will also mark the return of Choreographer Ashley Roy who helped bring "AMERICAN IDIOT" to our stage last season!
The Production Features a Cast of Local Actors both new, and returning, to our stage; including: Brad Cerenzia (Max Bialystock), William Johnson (Leo Bloom), Kyle Sinclair (Franz Liebkind), Henry Talbot Dorset (Roger DeBris), Erik Davis (Carmen Ghia), Hayley Ewerz (Ulla Inga Hanse), Betzy Miller (Hold Me-Touch Me) and a dynamic Male Ensemble featuring Ton Williams, Mark Anthony, Alex Ross, Jaxx Chadick, Judah Sawyer, James Sawyer.

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 the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends..
