    "THE PRODUCERS" opens at 8 p.m. today and runs through April 20 at the Camelot Theatre, 101 Talent Ave., Talent. The play follows a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant who hatch a scheme to create the most notorious flop in theater history, thus bilking their backers out of millions of dollars. Things go awry when the show becomes a smash hit. Mel Brooks' Tony Award-winning musical follows the antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they fecklessly select a show (the gloriously offensive "Springtime for Hitler"), hire a director, raise money from their backers and finally go to prison because of their misdeeds. Show times, tickets and information available at www.camelottheatre.org or 541-535-5250.
