Farmers Alley stages "The Producers"
Farmers Alley Theatre stages The Producers

To wrap up Farmers Alley Theatre’s 10th season, Stephen Wallem, of TV’s Nurse Jackie, and Tony Humrichouser, an award-winning actor and Western Michigan University alumnus, will play partners who attempt to produce the worst show in Broadway history.

Wallem and Humrichouser star as the lovable pair of swindlers Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom in Mel Brooks’ Tony Award-winning comedic musical The Producers, to be staged at the Little Theatre, on Oakland Drive, July 20–Aug. 5.

There are plenty of laughs as Max and Leo attempt to produce the sure-to-bomb musical Springtime for Hitler, encountering a chorus full of colorful characters and surprises along the way.

Tickets are $37, or $35 for ages 65 and older and $15 for students with valid ID. For show times and tickets, call the box office at 343-2727 or visit
