Omaha Community Playhouse
Hawks Mainstage Theatre
Winner of 12 Tony Awards, The Producers is the hilarious, lively and absurd Mel Brooks comedy that follows producers Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom on their quest to become filthy rich. They have created a perfect plan and a Broadway scam-produce a complete theatrical failure with a terrible script and the worst director in town. Packed full of dancing Nazis, storm troopers and showgirls, their musical Springtime for Hitler is a sure bet to bomb. Now they just need to sit back and let the dough roll in
The premise of this show is to create an absurd and offensive musical, so there are light-hearted moments that are purposely offensive including the aforementioned dancing Nazis.
