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.
Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive “Springtime for Hitler”), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction.
At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends.
Must be over 18 to audition.
UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, ACTORS WILL BE WEARING MASKS ON STAGE DURING PERFORMANCES. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING. WE ARE JUST GLAD TO BE BACK LIVE! AUDIENCE MEMBERS NEED TO SHOW THEIR COVID VACCINATION CARD (OR A PHOTO OF THE CARD) OR A NEGATIVE TEST WITHIN 72 HOURS AND WEAR MASKS.
All Roles Open
The consummate con man. Naturally animated and bombastic, he is never at a loss for charm and manners. Typically conspires with Leo. Very strong comedic actor.
An accountant. Boring and mousy, he is a hesitant optimist who longs for something more. Dragged into a scheme by Max. Strong comic singer and actor.
German loyalist playwright. From his lederhosen to his pigeon, Adolph, his love for the motherland is unmistakable. He is imposing yet tender.
New York’s most famous and flamboyant stage director. Surrounds himself with deliciously beautiful clothing, people, and possessions. In a crowd, it would be impossible to miss him.
Roger Debris’ faithful assistant. Carmen is severe in looks and passion for Roger. Over the top, flamboyant, with strong comedic acting.
Ulla Inga Hansen Benson Yonsen Tallen-Hallen Svaden-Svanson
A young and hopeful actress. Though her beauty might eclipse her talent, Ulla is passionate about life and art. Quite a clueless seductress in some ways. Strong dancers and belter.
A Large cast of singers and dancers, small parts will be cast from within the ensemble.
