Date: Aug 03
Venue: Theatre at The Mill
The Theatre at The Mill in Newtownabbey will stage the first ever professional production in Northern Ireland of the Tony award-winning musical comedy The Producers.
Some of Northern Ireland’s most talented young performers will star in the premiere of the smash hit show at the Newtownabbey theatre from August 3 to 11.
The show’s director Peter Corry said that Northern Ireland audiences will be wowed by this hilarious, all-singing, all-dancing musical spectacular.
The Producers is based on a Mel Brooks movie which was then developed as a hugely successful Broadway production winning 12 Tony Awards in 2001. Starring Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick it ran for more than 2,500 performances. It proved equally successful when transferring to London where it ran for three years and spawned a successful 2005 film.
The story tells of Broadway producer Max Bialystock and nerdy accountant Leo Bloom who plan to make millions by producing a sure-fire flop so that they can run off with the money when the show closes after its opening night. Unfortunately their musical ‘Springtime for Hitler’ is so outrageously camp it becomes a massive hit because the audience think it is a satire.
Tickets start from £9 and are available online at www.theatreatthemill.com or from the Box Office on 028 9034 0202.
