In the town of Transylvania Heights, in the year 1934, the villagers celebrate the funeral procession of the mad scientist, Dr. Victor von Frankenstein. Meanwhile, in New York, Frederick Frankenstein is ashamed to be a Frankenstein, insisting his name be pronounced 'Fronkensteen' and that he is not a madman but, rather, a scientist. After learning that he has inherited his grandfather's castle in Transylvania, he is forced to resolve the issue of the property.
With such memorable tunes as "The Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' On The Ritz," "Young Frankenstein" is scientifically-proven, monstrously good entertainmentâ€¦and the only place you'll witness a singing and dancing laboratory experiment in the largest tuxedo ever made.
The cast includes Mike Keinker (The Monster), Seth Maisel (Frederick Frankenstein), Mark Shonsey (Igor), Kristi Siedow-Thompson (Inga), Shahara Ostrand (Elizabeth), Barbara Porecca (Frau Blucher), Patrick Brownson (Hans Kemp), Chris Gallegos (Victor), Richard-Curtis Simpson (Harold the Hermit) and Zach Nick (Ziggy).
