Dressed in a lavish white ensemble, actress Bethany Rowlee performed "If You've Got It, Flaunt It" Thursday on "First Look with Scott Cox."

Rowlee is playing Ulla in the popular musical "The Producers," now showing at Stars Theatre Restaurant.

Rowlee's character is a stereotypical Swedish woman -- tall and beautiful with long blond hair -- who speaks little English.

"The show is so over the top and the choreography takes it over the edge," Rowlee said.

The musical is an adaptation of the 1968 film that tells the story of a theatrical producer and an accountant who want to produce a "flop Broadway show" but flee to Brazil with all the money raised for the film. But everything takes a turn when the show is a big hit.

The local show is coming to an end, so if you haven't seen it, Rowlee suggested you get tickets soon. For information on dates and times, visit www.bmtstars.com.
