**_Registration will be available Friday, May 31st at 8:00AM. Please be sure you are able to access your account prior to registration._** Donna has over 15 years of hands-on canine training experience. Donna works hard to help each dog guardian have the tools and knowledge needed to build a stronger and healthier relationship with their dog. [www.tlcdogtrainer.com](http://www.tlcdogtrainer.com) \*All classes require proof of rabies prior to the first class. \*Humans - No open toed shoes/sandals to class  In response to the national atypical Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex (CIRDC) we will be following guidelines as outlined by the Connecticut Department of Agriculture. **S.T.A.R. PUPPY** The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy is an exciting program designed to get dog owners and their puppies off to a good start. The S.T.A.R. puppy program includes the following: basic puppy-raising information (jumping, house training, nipping...), basic obedience skills, how to better communicate and understand the language of dogs, and what is needed for responsible pet ownership. This program is designed for dogs less than 7 months in age who have not had any prior group experience. **TWEENER** Is your dog 7 months or older and never attended a basic obedience class? Then this is the group class for you! The Tweener class will cover all basic obedience skills (including how to infuse these skills as part of everyday life), how to better communicate with and understand the language of dogs, and what is needed for responsible pet ownership. \*This is not a reactive dog class. Each dog needs to be privately evaluated by the instructor. **Basic Obedience 1** Has your dog completed the prerequisite class of either the S.T.A.R. Puppy or Tweener Class and you're looking for the next level of training? Then this is the group class for you! The Basic Obedience 1 class takes the skills learned in the Star Puppy / Tweener Class to the next level. We revisit all the skills you have learned - increasing difficulty and reliability of performance. This fun class uses games which support teaching our dogs good manners while having fun at the same time!! **Basic Obedience 2** If you have completed  the prerequisite class Basic Obedience 1 and want to start preparing for the Canine Good Citizen class - then this is the group for you. This class focuses on enhancing your leash work skills, how to increase your dog's ability to follow cues with various levels of distractions, as well as how to start getting more behavior for less rewards. You will also learn how to teach your dog to listen to cues from a distance rather than just right in front of you. Residents $250.00 Non-residents $270.00

From Rome to Naples, then Sicily, and Malta, then back again, this gifted but troubled artist left a trail of outstanding paintings the world is still admiring. Toni McKeen tells us the story of Caravaggio, probably the most revolutionary artist of his time, who abandoned the rules from a century of artists who came before him as he made up his own.

The Producers

Book by Thomas Meehan, Mel Brooks and Music & Lyrics by Mel Brooks

Directed by Craig David Rosen with Musical Director Sarah Fay and choreographer Faith Fernandes


Winner of 12 Tony Awards! A down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive “Springtime for Hitler”), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. With a truly hysterical book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks, The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender!”

Shows are June 28 - July 20 on Friday and Saturday at 8 PM with matinees on Sunday at 2PM. There will be a free preview for area senior citizens on Thursday, June 27 at 8 PM.


Brookfield Theatre's 2024 Season is made possible with the support of the Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of Arts; Support has also been provided to Brookield Theatre from CT Humanities (CTH), with funding provided by the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) from the Connecticut State Legislature; Along with the generous donations of our many supporters and subscribers.

#### The Ultimate Theatre Bromance Is Back On Stage in Brookfield! What better "bromance" is there than between Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom? When Max is a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer, he dupes mild-mannered accountant Leo into being a partner to produce the most notorious flop in Broadway history and bilking their backers out of millions of dollars in the process. We follow Max and Leo on their crazy journey to find the worst script staged in the most outrageous way possible. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! As all their plans crash around them and the future looks bleak, Leo sings, "No one ever made me feel like someone 'til him" and Max finally realizes that he doesn't have a partner, he has a friend! "The Producers" skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender” and in the best of Broadway tradition, leaves everyone laughing in the end. Winner of 12 Tony Awards, the truly hysterical book is co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) with music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks. Opening at Brookfield Theatre on June 28, it features the "dream team" of Craig David Rosen as director/choreographer and Sarah Fay as musical director. They previously teamed up for the award-winning "Sweeney Todd,The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" and "Best Little Whorehouse In Texas". Craig is also the author of the hilariously funny play "Straight Men Can't Dance" which premiered at Brookfield Theatre in 2023. "The Producers" stars Jason Maur as Max Bialystock, Marcevan Costanzo as Leo Bloom, and Bella Delgado as Ulla Inga Hansen Benson Yansen Tallen Hallen Svaden Swansson with Steven Taliaferro as Franz Liebkind, Roger Grace as Roger DeBris, and Ben Kistinger as Carmen Ghia with the wonderfully talented ensemble cast including Kristin Aug, Tony Benedetti, Heather Burlant, Susan Chapin, Chris Fay, Melanie Fay, Susie Hackel, Peter Lerman, Ali Michalek, Denise Milmerstadt, Bob Roda, Kati Seppa, Aranka Vitarius, and Brandie Zucker. The creative team includes Tap Choreographer Jessica Chesbro, Set Designer Andrew Okell, Costume Designer Rebecca Pokorski-Cebollero, Lighting Designer Stephen Cihanek, and Sound Designer Gary Blu. The production team includes Assistant Producer/Sound Tech Tom Heydenburg, Assistant Stage Managers Sean Latasa and Emma Burke-Covitz, Costume Assistant Lily Denise, Set & Prop Assistant Alexa Ancona, Assistant Set Designer Bob Lane, Lighting Technician Anabella Barragan, and Front of House Manager Dan Carriero Performances will be held at Brookfield Theatre located on Route 25 by the library from June 28 through July 20 on Friday and Saturday at 8 PM with matinees on Sunday at 2PM. There will also be a free preview for area senior citizens on Thursday, June 27 at 8 PM. Tickets are $25 general admission and $20 for seniors and students and reservations can be made at [www.BrookfieldTheatre.org.](http://www.brookfieldtheatre.org) _Brookfield Theatre's 2024 Season is made possible with the support of the Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of Arts; Support has also been provided to Brookield Theatre from CT Humanities (CTH), with funding provided by the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) from the Connecticut State Legislature; Along with the generous donations of our many supporters and subscribers._

**Join us on Saturday June 29th as we welcome Holley McCreary and special guests Ham Bagby, Mamie Lew, and Megan Lia for a Southern Songwriter Showcase!** **Holley McCreary**  is an independent singer songwriter whose roots stem from the deep south. Growing up in Florida and Alabama, she was heavily influenced by both gospel music and Muscle Shoals sound. **Ham Bagby**  started playing music at age 13 - he wanted to play when he was 6, but it wasn't until then that he got his first guitar! Ham Bagby lived in Tuscaloosa, Alabama for almost twenty years where he crafted his show’s mix of humor, southern flair, and attempted virtuosity. **Mamie**   **Lew**  is a singer/songwriter and artist from South Carolina, who has been playing shows and festivals across the country since 2007. Having lived in both music capitals, she has learned to combine Texas songwriting with the Nashville sound and structure, in an Americana roots style. Americana artist  **Megan Lea**  has found her niche with her honest, edgy take on traditional Southern music. Her writing can be humorous, deep, poetic, and intense; mixed with her vibrant, warm-textured vocals and fun-loving, captivating stage presence, she offers something unique at every performance.

The Producers

Book by Thomas Meehan, Mel Brooks and Music & Lyrics by Mel Brooks

Directed by Craig David Rosen with Musical Director Sarah Fay and choreographer Faith Fernandes


Winner of 12 Tony Awards! A down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive “Springtime for Hitler”), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. With a truly hysterical book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks, The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender!”

Shows are June 28 - July 20 on Friday and Saturday at 8 PM with matinees on Sunday at 2PM. There will be a free preview for area senior citizens on Thursday, June 27 at 8 PM.


Brookfield Theatre's 2024 Season is made possible with the support of the Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of Arts; Support has also been provided to Brookield Theatre from CT Humanities (CTH), with funding provided by the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) from the Connecticut State Legislature; Along with the generous donations of our many supporters and subscribers.

#### The Ultimate Theatre Bromance Is Back On Stage in Brookfield! What better "bromance" is there than between Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom? When Max is a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer, he dupes mild-mannered accountant Leo into being a partner to produce the most notorious flop in Broadway history and bilking their backers out of millions of dollars in the process. We follow Max and Leo on their crazy journey to find the worst script staged in the most outrageous way possible. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! As all their plans crash around them and the future looks bleak, Leo sings, "No one ever made me feel like someone 'til him" and Max finally realizes that he doesn't have a partner, he has a friend! "The Producers" skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender” and in the best of Broadway tradition, leaves everyone laughing in the end. Winner of 12 Tony Awards, the truly hysterical book is co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) with music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks. Opening at Brookfield Theatre on June 28, it features the "dream team" of Craig David Rosen as director/choreographer and Sarah Fay as musical director. They previously teamed up for the award-winning "Sweeney Todd,The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" and "Best Little Whorehouse In Texas". Craig is also the author of the hilariously funny play "Straight Men Can't Dance" which premiered at Brookfield Theatre in 2023. "The Producers" stars Jason Maur as Max Bialystock, Marcevan Costanzo as Leo Bloom, and Bella Delgado as Ulla Inga Hansen Benson Yansen Tallen Hallen Svaden Swansson with Steven Taliaferro as Franz Liebkind, Roger Grace as Roger DeBris, and Ben Kistinger as Carmen Ghia with the wonderfully talented ensemble cast including Kristin Aug, Tony Benedetti, Heather Burlant, Susan Chapin, Chris Fay, Melanie Fay, Susie Hackel, Peter Lerman, Ali Michalek, Denise Milmerstadt, Bob Roda, Kati Seppa, Aranka Vitarius, and Brandie Zucker. The creative team includes Tap Choreographer Jessica Chesbro, Set Designer Andrew Okell, Costume Designer Rebecca Pokorski-Cebollero, Lighting Designer Stephen Cihanek, and Sound Designer Gary Blu. The production team includes Assistant Producer/Sound Tech Tom Heydenburg, Assistant Stage Managers Sean Latasa and Emma Burke-Covitz, Costume Assistant Lily Denise, Set & Prop Assistant Alexa Ancona, Assistant Set Designer Bob Lane, Lighting Technician Anabella Barragan, and Front of House Manager Dan Carriero Performances will be held at Brookfield Theatre located on Route 25 by the library from June 28 through July 20 on Friday and Saturday at 8 PM with matinees on Sunday at 2PM.

**Join us for a unique therapeutic workshop based on the ancient Japanese practice of Kintsugi (repairing broken pottery) led by Art Therapist Tara DeLuca.** “Instead of masking the flaws, a Japanese way of seeing things is that by highlighting the cracks, pieces become stronger, more beautiful, and open to new opportunities." During the workshop, you will connect with your bowl, break it, confront the damage, and take ownership of the pieces that remain by gluing them back together. The bowl will be changed forever, just as each person is through their personal experiences. - What was once broken does not always stay that way - Broken, repaired, and new - Calming, shared experience, self-care - The concept expresses how the passage of time can further increase the beauty in the imperfect. **_“Instead of masking the flaws, a Japanese way of seeing things is that by highlighting the cracks, the piece becomes stronger, more beautiful, and easier to use.”_** **_Register here:_**

When they all must quarantine together after Covid breaks out, it will be a miracle if they don’t kill each other before the pandemic does in this fast paced, heartwarming comedy. **_Note about ADA Accessibility: _** _Seats A11 & A13 are designated as handicap and can be removed to accommodate a wheelchair.

**_Registration will be available Friday, May 31st at 8:00AM. Please be sure you are able to access your account prior to registration._** Donna has over 15 years of hands-on canine training experience. Donna works hard to help each dog guardian have the tools and knowledge needed to build a stronger and healthier relationship with their dog. [www.tlcdogtrainer.com](http://www.tlcdogtrainer.com) \*All classes require proof of rabies prior to the first class. \*Humans - No open toed shoes/sandals to class  In response to the national atypical Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex (CIRDC) we will be following guidelines as outlined by the Connecticut Department of Agriculture. **S.T.A.R. PUPPY** The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy is an exciting program designed to get dog owners and their puppies off to a good start. The S.T.A.R. puppy program includes the following: basic puppy-raising information (jumping, house training, nipping...), basic obedience skills, how to better communicate and understand the language of dogs, and what is needed for responsible pet ownership. This program is designed for dogs less than 7 months in age who have not had any prior group experience. **TWEENER** Is your dog 7 months or older and never attended a basic obedience class? Then this is the group class for you! The Tweener class will cover all basic obedience skills (including how to infuse these skills as part of everyday life), how to better communicate with and understand the language of dogs, and what is needed for responsible pet ownership. \*This is not a reactive dog class. Each dog needs to be privately evaluated by the instructor. **Basic Obedience 1** Has your dog completed the prerequisite class of either the S.T.A.R. Puppy or Tweener Class and you're looking for the next level of training? Then this is the group class for you! The Basic Obedience 1 class takes the skills learned in the Star Puppy / Tweener Class to the next level. We revisit all the skills you have learned - increasing difficulty and reliability of performance. This fun class uses games which support teaching our dogs good manners while having fun at the same time!! **Basic Obedience 2** If you have completed  the prerequisite class Basic Obedience 1 and want to start preparing for the Canine Good Citizen class - then this is the group for you. This class focuses on enhancing your leash work skills, how to increase your dog's ability to follow cues with various levels of distractions, as well as how to start getting more behavior for less rewards. You will also learn how to teach your dog to listen to cues from a distance rather than just right in front of you. Residents $250.00 Non-residents $270.00

**_Registration will be available Friday, May 31st at 8:00AM. Please be sure you are able to access your account prior to registration._** Donna has over 15 years of hands-on canine training experience. Donna works hard to help each dog guardian have the tools and knowledge needed to build a stronger and healthier relationship with their dog. [www.tlcdogtrainer.com](http://www.tlcdogtrainer.com) \*All classes require proof of rabies prior to the first class. \*Humans - No open toed shoes/sandals to class  In response to the national atypical Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex (CIRDC) we will be following guidelines as outlined by the Connecticut Department of Agriculture. **S.T.A.R. PUPPY** The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy is an exciting program designed to get dog owners and their puppies off to a good start. The S.T.A.R. puppy program includes the following: basic puppy-raising information (jumping, house training, nipping...), basic obedience skills, how to better communicate and understand the language of dogs, and what is needed for responsible pet ownership. This program is designed for dogs less than 7 months in age who have not had any prior group experience. **TWEENER** Is your dog 7 months or older and never attended a basic obedience class? Then this is the group class for you! The Tweener class will cover all basic obedience skills (including how to infuse these skills as part of everyday life), how to better communicate with and understand the language of dogs, and what is needed for responsible pet ownership. \*This is not a reactive dog class. Each dog needs to be privately evaluated by the instructor. **Basic Obedience 1** Has your dog completed the prerequisite class of either the S.T.A.R. Puppy or Tweener Class and you're looking for the next level of training? Then this is the group class for you! The Basic Obedience 1 class takes the skills learned in the Star Puppy / Tweener Class to the next level. We revisit all the skills you have learned - increasing difficulty and reliability of performance. This fun class uses games which support teaching our dogs good manners while having fun at the same time!! **Basic Obedience 2** If you have completed  the prerequisite class Basic Obedience 1 and want to start preparing for the Canine Good Citizen class - then this is the group for you. This class focuses on enhancing your leash work skills, how to increase your dog's ability to follow cues with various levels of distractions, as well as how to start getting more behavior for less rewards. You will also learn how to teach your dog to listen to cues from a distance rather than just right in front of you. Residents $250.00 Non-residents $270.00

The Producers

Book by Thomas Meehan, Mel Brooks and Music & Lyrics by Mel Brooks

Directed by Craig David Rosen with Musical Director Sarah Fay and choreographer Faith Fernandes


Winner of 12 Tony Awards! A down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive “Springtime for Hitler”), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. With a truly hysterical book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks, The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender!”

Shows are June 28 - July 20 on Friday and Saturday at 8 PM with matinees on Sunday at 2PM. There will be a free preview for area senior citizens on Thursday, June 27 at 8 PM.


Brookfield Theatre's 2024 Season is made possible with the support of the Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of Arts; Support has also been provided to Brookield Theatre from CT Humanities (CTH), with funding provided by the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) from the Connecticut State Legislature; Along with the generous donations of our many supporters and subscribers.

#### The Ultimate Theatre Bromance Is Back On Stage in Brookfield! What better "bromance" is there than between Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom? When Max is a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer, he dupes mild-mannered accountant Leo into being a partner to produce the most notorious flop in Broadway history and bilking their backers out of millions of dollars in the process. We follow Max and Leo on their crazy journey to find the worst script staged in the most outrageous way possible. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! As all their plans crash around them and the future looks bleak, Leo sings, "No one ever made me feel like someone 'til him" and Max finally realizes that he doesn't have a partner, he has a friend! "The Producers" skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender” and in the best of Broadway tradition, leaves everyone laughing in the end. Winner of 12 Tony Awards, the truly hysterical book is co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) with music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks. Opening at Brookfield Theatre on June 28, it features the "dream team" of Craig David Rosen as director/choreographer and Sarah Fay as musical director. They previously teamed up for the award-winning "Sweeney Todd,The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" and "Best Little Whorehouse In Texas". Craig is also the author of the hilariously funny play "Straight Men Can't Dance" which premiered at Brookfield Theatre in 2023.

If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity. This "tale as old as time" brings the entire community together for family theater at its best.

The Producers

Book by Thomas Meehan, Mel Brooks and Music & Lyrics by Mel Brooks

Directed by Craig David Rosen with Musical Director Sarah Fay and choreographer Faith Fernandes


Winner of 12 Tony Awards! A down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive “Springtime for Hitler”), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. With a truly hysterical book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks, The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender!”

Shows are June 28 - July 20 on Friday and Saturday at 8 PM with matinees on Sunday at 2PM. There will be a free preview for area senior citizens on Thursday, June 27 at 8 PM.


Brookfield Theatre's 2024 Season is made possible with the support of the Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of Arts; Support has also been provided to Brookield Theatre from CT Humanities (CTH), with funding provided by the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) from the Connecticut State Legislature; Along with the generous donations of our many supporters and subscribers.

#### The Ultimate Theatre Bromance Is Back On Stage in Brookfield! What better "bromance" is there than between Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom? When Max is a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer, he dupes mild-mannered accountant Leo into being a partner to produce the most notorious flop in Broadway history and bilking their backers out of millions of dollars in the process. We follow Max and Leo on their crazy journey to find the worst script staged in the most outrageous way possible. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! As all their plans crash around them and the future looks bleak, Leo sings, "No one ever made me feel like someone 'til him" and Max finally realizes that he doesn't have a partner, he has a friend! "The Producers" skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender” and in the best of Broadway tradition, leaves everyone laughing in the end. Winner of 12 Tony Awards, the truly hysterical book is co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) with music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks. Opening at Brookfield Theatre on June 28, it features the "dream team" of Craig David Rosen as director/choreographer and Sarah Fay as musical director. They previously teamed up for the award-winning "Sweeney Todd,The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" and "Best Little Whorehouse In Texas". Craig is also the author of the hilariously funny play "Straight Men Can't Dance" which premiered at Brookfield Theatre in 2023. "The Producers" stars Jason Maur as Max Bialystock, Marcevan Costanzo as Leo Bloom, and Bella Delgado as Ulla Inga Hansen Benson Yansen Tallen Hallen Svaden Swansson with Steven Taliaferro as Franz Liebkind, Roger Grace as Roger DeBris, and Ben Kistinger as Carmen Ghia with the wonderfully talented ensemble cast including Kristin Aug, Tony Benedetti, Heather Burlant, Susan Chapin, Chris Fay, Melanie Fay, Susie Hackel, Peter Lerman, Ali Michalek, Denise Milmerstadt, Bob Roda, Kati Seppa, Aranka Vitarius, and Brandie Zucker. The creative team includes Tap Choreographer Jessica Chesbro, Set Designer Andrew Okell, Costume Designer Rebecca Pokorski-Cebollero, Lighting Designer Stephen Cihanek, and Sound Designer Gary Blu. The production team includes Assistant Producer/Sound Tech Tom Heydenburg, Assistant Stage Managers Sean Latasa and Emma Burke-Covitz, Costume Assistant Lily Denise, Set & Prop Assistant Alexa Ancona, Assistant Set Designer Bob Lane, Lighting Technician Anabella Barragan, and Front of House Manager Dan Carriero Performances will be held at Brookfield Theatre located on Route 25 by the library from June 28 through July 20 on Friday and Saturday at 8 PM with matinees on Sunday at 2PM.

**The JCC in Sherman welcomes Melinda Elliott for our Sunday Speaker Series event on Sunday July 7th at 1pm.** **We will start with a viewing of the film HOME OF THE BRAVE: WHEN SOUTHBURY SAID NO TO THE NAZIS, and go right into an in-depth discussion about Melinda's research and vast historical knowledge. She will also read from her book NO SWASTIKAS IN SOUTHBURY.** **Copies of her book will be available for purchase.** **_Sunday Speaker Series events are Free. All donations are greatly appreciated!_** **_Please click on the ticket link to RSVP for this event. You will not be charged._** On September 25, 1937, Wolfgang Jung purchased 178 acres of land in Southbury, Connecticut for the German-American Bund, intent on building a Nazi camp. Similar camps were popping up around the nation, in an effort to promote an antisemitic and pro-Nazi agenda. The residents of Southbury quickly united to fight back against this Nazi invasion of their town. Until 2012, this important story was not well-known to many people in Southbury, let alone people who lived elsewhere. A 40 minute documentary **_Home of the Brave: When Southbury Said NO to the Nazis_** premiered in 2012. Directed by Scott Sniffen, it presents the story along with riveting oral history from those who were alive at that time including the descendants of Reverend Lindsay. **Melinda K. Elliott** was fascinated by the movie and wanted to know more of the details. After five years of research, **_No Swastikas in Southbury_** was published by Fonthill Media, telling the rest of the story in a day-by-day journal format. Southbury residents needed to act quickly if they did not want Nazi philosophies to clash with their staunch New England values. In spite of their differences in background or politics, the townspeople had to make a decision. The book reveals an overview of the German-American Bund’s threat to America in 1937 and chronicles the day-by-day struggles of a small town working through their own issues in order to stand up against the Nazis. The town proved that doing or saying something is far more powerful than keeping silent.Melinda K. Elliott grew up with a keen interest in history. She is always researching some historical topic and loves delving into the stories of long-forgotten people. Melinda enjoys sharing her latest finds through writing blog posts, articles, brochures, and books. She has had speaking engagements throughout the state and on various zoom webinars streamed around the world. Melinda is the president of the Southbury Historical Society, and director of The Bullet Hill School – A Living Museum program. Her published books include _Connecticut Schoolhouses Through Time_, _Southbury Through Time: Remnants of Our Past,_ and _No Swastikas in Southbury._ Melinda and her husband, Ray, enjoy road trips and are always on the lookout for one-room schoolhouses, covered bridges, old mills, and historic villages. They have three children, all living nearby, and eight grandchildren to spoil. **Sunday Speaker Series events are Free for JCCS Members / $5 Donation Non-Members. ALL donations are greatly appreciated!**

The Producers

Book by Thomas Meehan, Mel Brooks and Music & Lyrics by Mel Brooks

Directed by Craig David Rosen with Musical Director Sarah Fay and choreographer Faith Fernandes


Winner of 12 Tony Awards! A down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive “Springtime for Hitler”), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. With a truly hysterical book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks, The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender!”

Shows are June 28 - July 20 on Friday and Saturday at 8 PM with matinees on Sunday at 2PM. There will be a free preview for area senior citizens on Thursday, June 27 at 8 PM.


Brookfield Theatre's 2024 Season is made possible with the support of the Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of Arts; Support has also been provided to Brookield Theatre from CT Humanities (CTH), with funding provided by the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) from the Connecticut State Legislature; Along with the generous donations of our many supporters and subscribers.

#### The Ultimate Theatre Bromance Is Back On Stage in Brookfield! What better "bromance" is there than between Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom? When Max is a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer, he dupes mild-mannered accountant Leo into being a partner to produce the most notorious flop in Broadway history and bilking their backers out of millions of dollars in the process. We follow Max and Leo on their crazy journey to find the worst script staged in the most outrageous way possible. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! As all their plans crash around them and the future looks bleak, Leo sings, "No one ever made me feel like someone 'til him" and Max finally realizes that he doesn't have a partner, he has a friend! "The Producers" skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender” and in the best of Broadway tradition, leaves everyone laughing in the end. Winner of 12 Tony Awards, the truly hysterical book is co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) with music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks. Opening at Brookfield Theatre on June 28, it features the "dream team" of Craig David Rosen as director/choreographer and Sarah Fay as musical director. They previously teamed up for the award-winning "Sweeney Todd,The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" and "Best Little Whorehouse In Texas". Craig is also the author of the hilariously funny play "Straight Men Can't Dance" which premiered at Brookfield Theatre in 2023. "The Producers" stars Jason Maur as Max Bialystock, Marcevan Costanzo as Leo Bloom, and Bella Delgado as Ulla Inga Hansen Benson Yansen Tallen Hallen Svaden Swansson with Steven Taliaferro as Franz Liebkind, Roger Grace as Roger DeBris, and Ben Kistinger as Carmen Ghia with the wonderfully talented ensemble cast including Kristin Aug, Tony Benedetti, Heather Burlant, Susan Chapin, Chris Fay, Melanie Fay, Susie Hackel, Peter Lerman, Ali Michalek, Denise Milmerstadt, Bob Roda, Kati Seppa, Aranka Vitarius, and Brandie Zucker. The creative team includes Tap Choreographer Jessica Chesbro, Set Designer Andrew Okell, Costume Designer Rebecca Pokorski-Cebollero, Lighting Designer Stephen Cihanek, and Sound Designer Gary Blu. The production team includes Assistant Producer/Sound Tech Tom Heydenburg, Assistant Stage Managers Sean Latasa and Emma Burke-Covitz, Costume Assistant Lily Denise, Set & Prop Assistant Alexa Ancona, Assistant Set Designer Bob Lane, Lighting Technician Anabella Barragan, and Front of House Manager Dan Carriero Performances will be held at Brookfield Theatre located on Route 25 by the library from June 28 through July 20 on Friday and Saturday at 8 PM with matinees on Sunday at 2PM. There will also be a free preview for area senior citizens on Thursday, June 27 at 8 PM.

Musicals at Richter (MAR), Connecticut’s longest-running outdoor theater, kicks off its 40th season with the scintillating musical, DISNEY'S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, playing July 5-20. Staged on the grounds of the Richter Arts Center (next to Richter Park Golf Course), 100 Aunt Hack Road, in Danbury, performances take place outdoors under the stars Friday through Sunday evenings, with additional specially discounted performances on Thursdays July 11 and July 18. ABOUT BEAUTY AND THE BEAST: Step into the enchanted world of Broadway's classic, DISNEY'S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, an international sensation that has been produced in 37 countries worldwide. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice.The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity. This "tale as old as time" brings the entire community together for family theater at its best. The tuneful score features such well-known favorites as "Be Our Guest," "Belle," "If I Can't Love Her," "Gaston," "Human Again," and "Beauty and the Beast." DISNEY’S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theater International (MTI). The production is directed by Donald E. Birely, with music direction by Ben Doyle and choreography by Matthew Farina.
