Galway University Musical Society’s (GUMS) 18th annual show is fast approaching. "The Producers” will take place in the Black Box Theatre from Tuesday 6th until Saturday 10th of February.
Based on the 1968 laugh-out-loud classic cult comedy of the same name and adapted for stage by Mel Brooks "The Producers” has won a record twelve Tony awards since its debut in 2001. When former king of Broadway, Max Bialystock, produces a string of shows that close on opening night, an unlikely alliance with a neurotic accountant leads to an ingenious scheme: raise far more money than necessary, create a sure-fire flop, take the money and run! This timeless classic will leave audiences rolling in the aisles. GUMS are pulling out all the stops with this daring production - it's guaranteed not to flop! The hilarious characters, satirical script and catchy songs will have you asking "What kind of musical is this?" The answer? An original one.
