Auditions for The Producers

Seattle Musical Theatre (SMT) is holding auditions for the Tony Award Winning musical – The Producers. This 2001 Tony Award ­winner for Best Musical is adapted by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan from Brooks’ 1968 comedy film.

The musical tells the story of Max Bialystock, the one­time king of Broadway producers hungry to strike it rich, and Leo Bloom, an accountant with dreams of someday becoming a theatre producer, discover that they could get richer by producing a flop than a hit and start by finding the worst show, worst director, and worst actors. When their new production, “Springtime for Hitler,” turns out to be a smash success, the plan is thrown off and the partners lives are thrown into chaos.
