Lake Superior Theatre Presents "The Producers

Arts &Theater
07:30 PM To 10:30 PM
Location: Lake Superior Theatre, Marquette
The Producers will run July 6-10 and 13-17 at Lake Superior Theatre. All shows start at 7:30PM! Tickets are available at https://tickets.nmu.edu/ “The Producers” is a laugh-out- loud, outrageous, crowd-pleasing farce that has been a smash hit since its 2001 debut. Fading Broadway producer Max Bialystock is desperate to get to the top of his profession again, and he finds an unlikely ally in mousy accountant Leo Bloom, who thinks that it may be possible to make far more money with a flop of a show than with a hit. Together, the two set out to produce the worst musical ever to hit Broadway. The catch is that they need to raise two million dollars to finance the show, and they then plan to take the money and head to Rio when the show inevitably closes. However unfortunately for Bialystock and Bloom the show is a total hit! Brooks’ signature humor keeping audiences in stitches, The Producers is definitely far from a flop!

The course follows the perimeter trail of the island counterclockwise up past Murray Bay and Duck Lake. At three miles the course heads eastward into the Tombolo, up into the island's thumb and then back along Trout Bay where runners can enjoy one of the most spectacular stretches of shoreline anywhere in the Great Lakes. Runners then ascend up the eastern cliffs of the island which treat runners to views of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The northern half of the island features 300ft colored Jacobsville sandstone cliffs and the remote and exquisitely beautiful North Beach. The return trail on the island’s western shore features remarkable vistas of Lake Superior. Much of the trail is shaded by lush hardwood forests. Exposed sections (atop cliffs) blanket runners with cool breezes off of Lake Superior. Trail includes single track, two track, and narrow dirt roads.
