At its heart, Panorama Theatre Company is about supporting young people and the young at heart to explore the medium of theatre as a vehicle for personal development, friendship, and as a potential career. Many performers, musical directors and backstage technicians have cut their teeth with Panorama, with alumni currently performing on stage in The Book of Mormon, on the West End, on cruise ships around the world and appearing in the current season of Dancing With the Stars.
To mark its 40th year, Panorama is staging the Mel Brooks musical comedy The Producers, one of the most outrageously offensive and politically incorrect pieces of theatre to ever hit the stage. Also adapted into a popular film with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick in 2005, this modern classic promises to leave audiences of all ages choking with laughter as the best — and worst — of 1950s Broadway is presented in side-splitting fashion.
Featuring toe-tapping numbers, this sure-fire hit is loaded with all the inappropriate things you wish you could get away with and more, throwing political correctness out the door. On at the Frankston Arts Centre and featuring a stellar cast and a 20-piece orchestra, we’re surprised you’re still reading this and haven’t booked your tickets yet! It’s on selected dates from April 5-14. Book at thefac.com.au or phone the box office on 9784 1060.
