Matthew McGee And James LaRosa To Star In THE PRODUCERS At American Stage

American Stage in the Park brings Mel Brooks' classic cult comedy to Demens Landing! Winner of a record twelve Tony Awards including 'Best Musical', The Producers sets the standard for modern, outrageous humor. The story centers around down-on-his-luck Broadway producer, Max Bialystock (Matthew McGee), and his mild-mannered accountant, Leo Bloom (James LaRosa), who come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, bilking their backers out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an "equal opportunity offender!" Contains some mature content. Parental guidance is suggested.

Producing Artistic Director Stephanie Gularte and American Stage present The Producers with direction by Rye Mullis, and choreography by Shain Stroff, rounding out the cast are Jim Sorensen as Franz Liebkind, Scott Daniel as Roger DeBris, Gretchen Bieber as Ulla, Alex Ringler as Carmen Ghia, Lauren Buglioli as Hold Me Touch Me, Tyler Fish as Marks, and featuring Emily Bainbridge, Trenton Bainbridge, April Berry, Emanuel Carrero, Tato Castillo, Alyssa Elrod, Charles Logan, Courtney McLaren, Dequan Mitchell, Tyler Pirrung, Kellyanna Polk, and Alicia Thomas.
