A philosopher once called theater “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown reflecting the rear-view of the sports car of destiny.” Simplify this theory with today’s theatrical Groupon: for $10, you get one adult ticket to see the Lakeland Community Theatre production of The Producers at the Lake Mirror Theatre Complex, located in downtown Lakeland (a $20 value). Choose one of the following four performances:
- Thursday, December 16, at 7:30 p.m.
- Friday, December 17, at 7:30 p.m.
- Saturday, December 18, at 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, December 19, at 2 p.m.
A Broadway hit and 12-time Tony Award winner, Mel Brooks' The Producers features the exploits of con men Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom, whose attempt to produce a flop on the Great White Way goes mirthfully awry. Accompanied by a live orchestra and the full-color guffaws of fellow audience members, The Producers ensures a side-stitching, knee-slapping, stranger-high-fiving good time. Currently in its 25th season, Lakeland Community Theatre has given thousands of local performers a spot on stage and ushered untold numbers of plot twists past the awe-struck eyes of more than 325,000 audience members. Its performance space in the Lake Mirror Theatre Complex is sited a short distance from an array of shops and restaurants, ensuring an evening of ample eye, ear, and mouth feasting.
