Congregation Emeth of Morgan Hill invites local residents to an opportunity to sample the culture of New York City. The group will partner with South Valley Civic Theatre to present a special performance of “The Producers” at 2:30 p.m. on July 12. This musical comedy, co-written by Borscht Belt comedian turned movie producer Mel Brooks, tells the story of two men who scheme to make money by producing a theatrical show guaranteed to fail, but which instead becomes an unexpected hit. This creates a business problem for the show’s producers, who must pay out profits to investors, of which there are a few too many. Based on a 1968 film that was controversial because of its irreverent story line, the musical version has since become a theatrical classic.
