Southeastern Illinois College Theatre will present Mel Brooks’ classic musical "The Producers" from April 20 to 22 in the George T. Dennis Visual and Performing Arts Center.

"The Producers" is the hilarious story of a scheming producer, Max Bialystock, and his mousy accountant, Leo Bloom, aiming to produce the biggest flop on Broadway in a laugh-out-loud musical based on Mel Brooks’ classic comedy film. As a Broadway musical, the show won a record 12 Tony Awards.

Taryn Herman, a former SIC student, choreographed the production. Formerly of Benton and currently living in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Herman has worked in many different theaters as a director and choreographer.

Showtimes are 7 p.m. April 20 and 21, and 2 p.m. April 22.

Reserved seating is $10 for adults and $8 for students, staff and seniors. Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by calling 618-252-5400, ext. 2486 or 618-841-4649 or by emailing

There are some adult themes and language, so the show is not recommended for children younger than 13.
