WEST MILFORD, N.J. -- West Milford High School will present a student production of the musical comedy "Young Frankenstein" March 1, 3, 4 and 5 in the school's auditorium.
From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation "The Producers" comes this new monster musical comedy. The comedy genius Mel Brooks adapts his legendarily funny film into a brilliant stage creation.
The 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 sidekick, 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. 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.
With such memorable tunes as "The Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' On The Ritz," "Young Frankenstein" is scientifically proven, monstrously good entertainment.
This show is rated PG-13. Show dates are 6 p.m. March 1 and 7 p.m. March 3-5. Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $10 for high school students and senior citizens. Tickets are on sale now. Click here to purchase tickets. For additional information, call (973) 697-1700.
