May 3-6 & 10-13 at 7:30pm. May 7 at 4:00pm. May 13 at 2:00pm.

From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation The Producers comes this monster new musical comedy. The comedy genius Mel Brooks adapts his legendarily funny film into a brilliant stage creation – Young Frankenstein! Every bit as relevant to audience members who will remember the original as it will be to newcomers, Young Frankenstein has all the panache of the screen sensation with a little extra theatrical flair added and such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ On The Ritz.” Recommended for ages 13 and older.

Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked side-kick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. “It’s alive!” he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather’s. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds.

Young Frankenstein book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan. Music and lyrics by Mel Brooks. Original Direction and Choreography by Susan Stroman and recreated by Cynthia Brown and Melissa Miller Port. “Puttin’ on the Ritz” by Irving Berlin. Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
