I would be interested in knowing the name of the sugary folk tune in the background of the opening spoken section.

The stage musical version of "The Producers" by Mel Brooks arrived in Berlin last month May, sell out crowds and rave reviews...eight years after its opening on Broadway and world tours.

Der Spiegel, May 15 2009

It IS similar to but NOT the tune noted by Guest above.
The dulcimer site (good midi collection) has "The Pennsylvania Polka"
