Benefits include:

- Armchairs to sit in on- stage throughout the show

- A leather-bound, signed copy of the script to read and sing-along with the actors

- A conductor’s baton to direct the musical numbers and a microphone to offer directions and tips during the performance

- A hamper of luxury goods to be enjoyed including Black Diamond Truffles, Krug Brut 1988 Champagne, Oysters and Gold-Leaf Hand-Made Swiss Chocolates.

The aim is to trial a new range of super-premium upgrade packages ahead of a full-launch across all the theatre’s shows later in the year.

Lee Duffy, Deputy GM at the theatre said, “We already offer a range of upgrade packages for our ordinary, everyday customers, but this is on a whole new level.

“We want to attract Business Leaders, WAGs and Russian Oil Barons to the theatre. People may say it’s vulgar and elitist– but let’s be honest, attracting these people to Milton Keynes can only be good news for local shops, bars and restaurants.”

Abi Singleton, Marketing Manager at MKT said, “If this works, we plan to extend it to more shows. Imagine being able to direct the opera, sing along with the cast of JERSEY BOYS or deliver the punch-lines in the pantomime.

“The possibilities are endless. We’re aware some of our regular customers may find it a little off-putting having other customers lounging around on-stage, feasting on oysters and champagne and interrupting the action.

“But seriously - not everyone goes to the theatre just to see a show these days. If people are keen to participate, fancy behaving like a producer and are prepared to pay for the privilege, then we’d be mad not to encourage them.”

The Producers is at Milton Keynes Theatre until Saturday, April 4. VIP PREMIUM ‘PRODUCERS’ PAMPER PACKAGES (VIPPPPP’s) are available to purchase on the Wednesday, April 1 matinee and evening performances only, priced at £25,000 per person.

Customers who are interested in purchasing should call Mrs April Tromper at the Theatre on 0844 123 45678.
