The Producers - Newtown Musical Theatre Company,  The Hafren
Newtown Musical Theatre Company is delighted to present Mel Brooks’ award-winning smash hit ‘The Producers’. In 1959, Broadway’s worst producer Max Bialystock schemes with neurotic accountant Leo Bloom to make millions by putting on a play that is guaranteed to flop. Written by a not-so secret fan of the Third Reich, staged by the most over-the-top director in history, and financed by a gaggle of raunchy little old ladies, Bialystock and Bloom’s ‘Springtime for Hitler’ seems sure “to close on page four” - what could possibly go right? With some adult humour, this zany, hilarious musical farce will bring tears (of laughter) to your eyes as it pokes fun at just about everything and everyone!

Ed Byrne - Spoiler Alert,  The Hafren
I originally intended to call the show, “I’ll Millennial You in a Minute”, but my promoter considered the title, “off-puttingly baffling”. Is life that bad or have we good reason to complain about it? Are we filled with righteous anger at a world gone wrong or are we all just a bunch of whiny little brats? In short, are we spoiled? Come and watch as Byrne takes this question, turns it upside down and shakes it until the funny falls out. Go on, spoil yourself.

Welsh National Opera - Rhondda Rips It Up!,  The Hafren
