The Indiana University Kokomo Crescendos will offer an evening of musical comedy, with its production of “The Producers.”
Director Rick Alexander said the show represents a shift in gears for the group, which previously performed the dramas “Les Miserables” and “Cats.”
“We wanted something lighter, and something funny, for this year’s production,” he said in a press release.
“The Producers” tells the story of a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his accountant, who scheme to produce the worst musical ever in order to steal the millions of dollars invested in the show by their backers. They only have one problem — their show is a smash hit.
“There is a little something to make everyone laugh, even if it is a guilty laugh,” said Alexander, cautioning the show is for an adult audience only.
Performances are at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday in Havens Auditorium. An additional show is set for 7 p.m. May 10, in the Peru High School auditorium.
Admission is free. No tickets are required, and seating is first-come-first-served.
