The Waterville Opera House will present an outrageously offensive and off-the-wall musicals ever to be made — “The Producers” the musical.

Production times are 7:30 p.m. April 6, 7, 13 and 14; and 2 p.m. April 8 and 15 at the opera house, 93 Main St. in Waterville.

The play is adapted from Mel Brooks’ 1968 classic comedy starring Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel.

In “The Producers,” the curtain rises on a washed-up Broadway producer, Max Bialystock and his nervous accountant, Leo Bloom. Together, the two plan an extravagant scheme to swindle their supporters — hundreds of sex-starved Little Old Ladies — out of millions by planning the biggest Broadway flop in history. To ensure the show closes on opening night, they find the most offensive script possible (”Springtime for Hitler”), hire the worst director possible, and fill the stage with horrible actors. What could possibly go right?

This show is rated PG-13 for profanity.

The cast of community actors is: Bart Shattuck, Nicholas Cloutier, Theros Smith, Nate Towne, Jacob Sutherland and Bee Tyler.

The ensemble includes Krista McClure Carlson, Jordan Clatchey, Amanda Clifford, Anna Cloutier, George Coleman, Jacob Coombs, Tim Croce, Samantha Delorie, Mandela Gardner, Vanessa Glazier, Ariel Grenier, Nick Herard, Paul Herard, Daniel Hollander, Taylor Kruse, Gabriel Lessing, Jeralyn Shattuck, Alex Slack and Will Stecher.

The production team included Director Debra Susi, Musical Director Rebecca Caron, Choreographer Adam P. Blais, Scenic/Lighting Designer Chad Lefebvre, Costume Designer Kacie Gerow and Sound Designer Jayson Murray.

Tickets cost $24 for adults, $22 for students/seniors, and group discounts are available.
