The show is running for two more weekends.
Brecksville Theater on the Square premiered “The Producers” this past weekend, and theater fans have just two more weeks to check it out. According to a press release from the theater, the show follows a Broadway producer and an accountant trying to create a failure of a play to make some quick money—comedy, of course, ensues.

Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday performances begin at 2 p.m. Tickets are $14 for adults and $12…
