IU Kokomo Crescendos offer free production of The Producers

April 25, 2014
KOKOMO, Ind. — The Indiana University Kokomo Crescendos offer an evening of musical comedy, with its production of The Producers.

Crescendos perform Crescendos perform "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.

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 that the show is for an adult audience only.

Performances are at 7 p.m. Friday, May 2, and Saturday, May 3, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 4, in Havens Auditorium. An additional show is set for 7 p.m. Saturday, May 10, in the Peru High School auditorium.

Admission is free. No tickets are required, and seating is first-come-first-served.

Indiana University Kokomo serves north central Indiana.
