THE PRODUCERS

Auditions for THE PRODUCERS! A large cast of singers, dancers, and actors is needed for this summer blockbuster!

 

THE PRODUCERS skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners, as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender!”

 

At the 2001 Tony Awards, The Producers won 12 out of its 15 nominations, setting the record for most wins in history and becoming one of the few musicals to win in every category for which it was nominated
