THMS Theater Presents
Comedy genius Mel Brooks has adapted his legendarily funny film into a brilliant MUSICAL stage creation, and it's coming to the Little Theatre at Tucson High!
After years of living down the family name, Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (he pronounces it "Fronk-en-steen") is summoned to Transylvania to go through the family estate after his infamous grandfather’s death. With the help of his hunch-backed assistant, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gor”) and his beautiful lab assistant, Inga, Frederick naturally manages to repeat certain experiments and bring his own creation to life! Throw in a catastrophic error involving an abnormal brain and a surprise visit to Transylvania from his needy fiancée Elizabeth, and you’ve got chaos for our young Dr. Frankenstein! Get ready for a show full of monster laughs and a big heart, with such memorable tunes as "The Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and, of course, a tap-dancing "Puttin' On The Ritz." Young Frankenstein is “A BLISSFULLY FUNNY MONSTER MASH!” (Newsday)
