The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant 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. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show, hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends.

  • Max Bialystock
    The consummate con man. Naturally animated and bombastic, he is never at a loss for charm and manners. Typically conspires with Leo. Male Presenting Playing Age: 40 to 55
  • Leo Bloom
    An accountant. Boring and mousy, he is a hesitant optimist who longs for something more. Dragged into a scheme by Max. Male Presenting Playing Age: 35 to 45
  • Franz Liebkind
    German loyalist playwright. From his lederhosen to his pigeon, Adolph, his love for the motherland is unmistakable. He is imposing yet tender. Male Presenting Age: 35 to 55
  • Rogers Debris(this role has been precast)
  • Carmen Ghia
    Roger Debris’ faithful assistant. Carmen is severe in looks and passion for Roger. He may appear younger than he actually is thanks to skilled surgeons. Male Presenting Age: 25 to 35
  • Ulla Inga Hansen Benson Yonsen Tallen-hallen Svaden-svanson
    A young and hopeful actress. Though her beauty might eclipse her talent, Ulla is passionate about life and art. Quite a clueless seductress in some ways. Female Presenting. Age: 20 to 30
  • Ensemble: Accountants; Bavarian Peasants; Convicts; First Nighters; Little Old Ladies; Storm Troopers; Chorus Girls; Girl Prisoners; Usherettes
