Theatre gears up

Kapi-Mana News - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

Porirua Lit­tle Theatre is fran­ti­cally busy re­hears­ing for its big­gest show of the year, The Pro­duc­ers.

With award- win­ning de­signer Anna Lowe’s set on track, di­rec­tor Dave Bramwell-cooke, wife Nicki, the chore­og­ra­pher, and mu­si­cal di­rec­tor Jean Hol­lier are pre­par­ing to revel in Broad­way’s worst.

The story re­volves around Max Bi­a­ly­stock, a down-on-his-luck pro­ducer. Af­ter putting to­gether an­other Broad­way flop, Max teams up with timid ac­coun­tant Leo Bloom in a get-rich-quick scheme to put on the world’s worst show.

The Pro­duc­ers fea­tures tap­danc­ing lit­tle old ladies, huge pro­duc­tion num­bers and the ir­rev­er­ent Mel Brooks-scripted hu­mour.

It runs at Porirua Lit­tle Theatre from June 7 to 30. Tick­ets are $30/$24. Visit or phone 0508 484 2338.

Bad com­pany: The cast pre­pares for the hi­lar­ity and ab­sur­dity of show-withina-show Broad­way mu­si­cal The Pro­duc­ers.
