Mel Brooks’ stage musical The Producers won 12 Tony awards and set the record for the most wins in history.

Famous for its irreverent presentation of ‘Springtime for Hitler’, the show is a rip-roaring comedy which takes no prisoners and doesn't distinguish Reich from wrong. It is hilarious, irreverent and absolutely unmissable.

New York, 1959. Max Bialystock was once the king of Broadway, but nowadays all his shows close on opening night. Things turn around when he's visited by the neurotic accountant Leo Bloom, who proposes a scheme tailor-made for producers whose shows are terrible: simply raise far more money than you need, then make sure the show is a flop. No one will be interested in it and you can pocket the surplus.

The show’s writer, Mel Brooks, dubbed ’the king of comedy’ by Variety magazine, made a slew of hilarious and memorable films such as High Anxiety, Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein. The Producers is perhaps the most perfect of his creations. Originally a film in 1967, starring Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel, it was converted by Brooks into a blockbuster of a multi-award-winning Broadway musical in 2001.

FAOS The Producers is presented by the directorial team who brought Farnham the highly successful FAOS productions of Spamalot, Fiddler on the Roof and Sister Act.

“Wow. Simply wow. Is there an amateur dramatics group anywhere that can produce shows like the FAOS Musical Theatre Group?”

Farnham Herald (Sister Act, January 2020)

0 Stars

“From beginning to end the attention to detail was outstanding - from the inspired but practical stage set to the subtle lighting and makeup, from the well-crafted music and singing of high quality to the superb acting and interplay between a strong but well-balanced cast."

National Opera and Drama Association (Fiddler on the Roof, 2019)

Thursday is Benefit Night for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice

FAOS always designates its Thursday performance as a fundraiser. £4 from each ticket sold will be donated to the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, which is the only Hospice Care service for adult patients and their families living with cancer or another terminal illness across the whole of West Surrey and part of North East Hampshire.

If you attend the Thursday performance you will be supporting a very important cause.

FAOS has been a part of Farnham life since 1928 and now presents a range of all musical theatre, old and new, and always to the accompaniment of a live professional orchestra.
