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

Quotes & Highlights
- "This is better than John Philip Sousa played on massed kazoos with free ice cream sodas.” --New York Post
Oil City Symphony comes to Fullerton’s Plummer Auditorium. The show stars its authors and original New York cast members Mike Craver and Mary Murfitt (626 performances Off-Broadway). The story concerns four famous graduates of Oil City High School, who return to pay a very humorous homage to a retiring teacher. Each must play several instruments on stage as well as sing and act. The music ranges from “The Hokey Pokey” to the “Anvil Chorus” and also includes “Stars and Stripes Forever”, “1812 Overture”, and “Count Your Blessings” , plus other sentimental favorites and rock standards. The show is known for its humor and multi-talented performers.
