The Producers - The Cast

Max Bialystock

played By

James Archer

This is James' first role with MCP and what a role!

A Bayston Hill boy, James has been heavily involved on the local Amateur Dramatic scene for some years. Currently putting the finishing touches to his PGCE James works at SCAT where he fittingly teaches Performing Arts. James is very excited at gaining such an iconic part and has thrown himself into the heavy reheasal commitment like a true professional!!

Leo Bloom

played by

James Pinches

Also new to MCP this will be James first role in the main house at Theatre Severn. James, from Shrewsbury, is a student at SCAT where he taught by, among others, James Archer! Over the past few months Alex and Lisa have watched him slowly morf into Leo, they envisage a nasty scene when they try to get his Blue Blanket from him after the show is over!


Ulla Played By Melissa Wellington

The lovely Mellisa joined MCP last year for Move Over Mrs Markham, when she played Sylvie the French aupair, a small but memorable part.

Now she changes nationalities and steps up to play the leading lady, the sexy Sweedish bombshell Ulla Inga Hanson Benson Yonson Tallen-Hallen Svaden-Swanson. Melissa, a senior receptionist at Rowton Castle Hotel and Country Club, describes Ulla as " a fantastic part in a fantastic musical!". It's her dream role, and she loves everything about it. Though the dancing is her especial favourite!

Roger Debris played by Playfair

Ex headmaster and current Educational Consultant Patrick  has been a member of MCP since it's creation. His previous roles include Lloyd in Noises Off in 2008 and the Colonel Von Strom in 'Allo, 'Allo in 2009. Patrick now turns his considerable talents to creating Roger for his theatrical debut in Theatre Severn, and what a debut!  

Following in the footsteps of other "serious" actors within MCP Patric will be appearing in a frock this time around.                                                                               


Franz Leibkind Played By Keith Clements Keith joined MCP last year for Move Over Mrs Markham when he played the over amourous Henry Lodge. A plummer by trade Keith is now perfecting his singing and dancing techniques to play the crazy, bird fancying Nazi, Franz Leibkind.

Apart from attending to U Bends Keith can also be heard crooning in various restaurants about the county and at the annual Corbet Cabaret.







Carmen Ghia Played By Robert Hinton

Robert is an accountant by training and finds Musical Theatre the perfect form of relaxation after the day job! After dressing up in a frock for Forum Robertis glad to say that Carmen only wears trousers, but... the high heels are proving a challenge!
