A hilarious comedy by V. Cate and Duke Ernsberger Directed by Barry Corlew and Bob Petrucelli The year is 1930 and Ben Hecht, the famous Hollywood writer, has just finished his screenplay for a movie produced by Howard Hughes called SCARFACE, loosely based on the real life story of Al Capone. The movie is going to be a blockbuster and Hecht considers the script to be the best he’s ever written. It all looks like a Hollywood ending….until the script disappears….only to turn up in the hands of two of Capone’s men who have been sent by Al to have a little “talk” with Ben. The jokes fly fast and thick in this hilarious comedy as Hecht tries to duck gangsters on one hand and the Hollywood censors on the other.

In this hysterical prequel to the original show we meet the people that we’re all too familiar with; the family members that make you remember why you left home in the first place. This time, however, we get to see greater nuances into the personalities of the dozens of characters we’ll meet along the way, especially Steve’s sister, "THE SMOKER", the, "She can do no wrong in the eyes of Mama" sister. His ex-wife: after the divorce she got the ring and I got the finger! Well you get the picture.
Winning a record twelve Tony Awards, Mel Brooks’ musical, The Producers, sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer (Tim Casey) and his mild mannered accountant (Bob Stehman) come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their backers (all "little old ladies") out of millions of dollars. What could possibly go wrong? Too many “wrongs” make a “right” and the show is a smash hit!
