Young Frankenstein Auditions

Synopsis

Frederick Von Frankenstein had no intention of following in his grandfather’s footsteps. He was a famous New York scientest, dedicated to his work with medicine and wished only to distance himself from his notorious grandfather. When Frederick receives word that he has inherited his family’s estate in Transylvania, Frederick can’t resist going on holiday to see his new holdings. Once he arrives, he discovers his grandfather’s secret laboratory and can’t resist following in his foot steps. Along with his new servant Igor, housekeeper Frau Blucher, and local girl Inga, Frederick once again creates life! This production of Mel Brooks Young Frankenstein has all the silliness and mad cap comedy you expect from the king of slapstick. Join us for an evening of terror, singing, and romance as the Monster wrecks havoc on the small town.
