When a once-great but now-broke Broadway producer and his accountant hatch a scheme to deliberately mount a sure-fire flop so they can abscond with the unspent production money, what could possibly go wrong? It turns out the only thing worse than getting caught is having a surprise hit on their hands. Based on the 1968 film starring Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel, and featuring the hilarious show within a show called Springtime for Hitler, The Producers skewers the absurdities of musical theater even as it delivers one of the best (and most over-the-top) Broadway shows in recent years. With a book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan and music and lyrics by Mel Brooks, the Broadway production nabbed 12 Tony Awards. Learn More

One of the most widely read books in the world is now a musical! The world premiere of Jane Eyre, a musical based on the novel by Charlotte Bronte, opens at Fullerton’s Plummer Auditorium. With Broadway / national touring stars Melissa Lyons and T. Eric Hart as Jane and Rochester, this new treatment of a classic work features 16 original songs and a 20-piece, live orchestra.
Jane grows up as an orphan at Lowood school for girls to become a teacher there, and then leaves to become the governess of Rochester’s ward at Thornfield Manor, where mystery and intrigue abound. This intense love story of Jane and Rochester is complimented with the humorous antics of Rochester’s household help.
The music is classic in the style of Les Miserables or Jekyll and Hyde, with soaring ballads and large ensemble numbers, including “Maybe Love”, “Common Ground” “Prosperity’s got a Price”, “Two Gentle Eyes”, and “The Moors Will be Calling." Still required reading in many schools, this musical dramatization promises to become a popular favorite. The music is by Jerry Williams, international symphony conductor and Musical Director for Donny and Marie Osmond Productions, with book by Patricia York, adapted for stage by Jan Duncan.
