Franz Allers (August 6, 1906, Carlsbad, Austria-Hungary (now Czech Republic) – January 26, 1995, Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.A.) was a European-American conductor of ballet, opera, Broadway musicals, film scores, and symphony orchestras. He is best known for his work on Broadway, and especially for conducting the original Broadway productions of My Fair Lady and Camelot, for each of which he won the Tony Award for Best Conductor and Musical Director, in 1957 and 1961.

Schonberg of The New York Times wrote that Allers, along with the conductor Maurice Abravanel, `completely revised the standards of Broadway pit work,` demanding the highest quality from both the orchestra players and the singers."
