Producers tour alumnus David Edwards directs the Westchester staging, which features choreography by Matthew Vargo, who is assisted by Sean McKnight. The Mel Brooks musical will officially open Aug. 14 and continue through Nov. 15. Amaral, a veteran of Broadway's The Lion King and the national tour of The Producers, stars as Max Bialystock with fellow Producers national tour cast member Joel Newsome as Leo Bloom.

Also featured are Karen McNay as Ulla, Craig Fols as Roger DeBris, John West as Carmen Ghia and Eric Anderson as Franz Liebkind.

The Producers ensemble comprises Delaine Andrzejewski, Jesse Coleman, Amy Griffin, Karen Hyland, John Ryan Jacobs, Sean McNight, Rob Oullette, Lindsay Packard, Ron Remke, Lara Seibert, Melissa Sybil, Anthony Valbiro, Correy West, Tracy J. Wholf and Jesse Wildman.

The creative team also includes Peter Barbieri (set design), Andrew Gmoser (lighting design), Jon Hatton (sound design), Matthew Hemesath (costume design) and Gerard Kelly (wig and hair design).

Featuring a book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, with a score by Brooks, The Producers follows a conniving Broadway producer and his neurotic accountant who discover that they could make more money off a flop than a smash hit. However, they get more than they bargained for when their flop, Springtime for Hitler, turns out to be a raging success.
