It is not surprising that one of the funniest and most outrageous musicals comes from the mind of Mel Brooks.
Packed full of innuendo, slapstick, ridiculously OTT characters and fantastic numbers, ‘The Producers’ is a spectacular show to open the Ashcroft Playhouse - and for CODA to be the company to perform it.
It will be a great fun, team effort and we want – nay, need - you to shine.
There are 6 named principal characters we will be auditioning:
Max Bialystock – the lovable rogue (loved by an army of old ladies, anyway) who used to be a major Broadway producer but has fallen on hard times and is desperate for another hit. Charismatic, charming, and a bit of a shyster…
Leo Bloom – the young, shy, vulnerable accountant who falls under Max’s spell and decides he wants to be ‘A Producer!’
Ulla Inga Hansen Benson Yonsen Talleri-Hallen – The sassy, sexy and – most of all – Swedish hopeful who turns up to audition for Max and Leo and instantly brings them under her spell
Franz Liebkind – The wildly eccentric author of the most appalling show ever written, ‘Springtime for Hitler’.
Roger de Bris – Hugely flamboyant Broadway director
Carmen Ghia – Roger’s catty assistant
Specific ages and physical descriptions have deliberately been omitted because it’s all about character.
NB: There is one unnamed part for which we will also be auditioning – the Storm Trooper who sings THE song, ‘Springtime for Hitler’. Traditionally this is sung by a man but we are flinging it open to everybody.
