At the close of the performance, my face hurt from laughing, but what else would you expect from a musical with the name Mel Brooks attached. This over-the-top and exquisitely offensive masterpiece, with everything from the producer's casting couch, grossly stereotypical ultra-sexy foreign female secretary/actress, sex-crazed old ladies to syrupy-sweet gay characters to literally, singing and dancing Nazis, this show is the antithesis to today's political correctness. The Producers at Carrollwood Players has something to make everyone do a little squirm in their seats and I loved every purposely-uncomfortable minute of this madcap story that revels in Mel Brook's irreverent humor.

I don't know about you, but this time of year is usually super busy for me! However, now that we are all spending a bit more time at home, it is a bit easier to find a free moment. If you're a theatre student, you likely were planning for some sort of audition when school was still physically in session. Luckily, being at home doesn't mean you can't still prepare for future auditions.
