Granbury Theatre Company will continue its 2020 Broadway on the Brazos season with The Producers: A Mel Brooks Musical from Feb. 21-March 22 at the historic Granbury Opera House.
“The plot is simple: 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,” states Music Theatre International.
The Producers originated in 1967 as a non-musical motion picture starring Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder, with Mel Brooks making his directorial debut. Brooks and Thomas Meehan adapted the screenplay into a Broadway musical starring Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick in 2001 – and that version in turn became a second motion picture with the Broadway stars.
Performances times are 7:30 p.m. on Fridays, 2 and 7:30 p.m. on Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays.
Tickets are available through the GTC box office at (817) 579-0952 or online at www.granburytheatrecompany.org.
Ticket prices are $35 for floor seating and $30 for balcony seating. Discounts are available for senior citizens, active duty military personnel, veterans, students, and children. Online and box office processing fees apply.
