    Young Frankenstein

    Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
    Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks
    Original Direction and Choreography by Susan Stroman
    Based on the story and screenplay by Gene Wilder and Mel Brooks and on the original motion picture by special arrangement with Twentieth Century Fox
    “Puttin’ On the Ritz” by Irving Berlin

    About the Show:
    It's alive! The electrifying adaptation of Mel Brooks' monstrously funny film will leave you in stitches.

    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!

    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 has all the panache of the screen sensation with a little extra theatrical flair added. It is the perfect opportunity to showcase an array of talents. 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.

    About Summer Independent:

    The Summer Independent program is a professionally-mentored program unique to Village Theatre. It the pinnacle experience for students who come with a background in live theatre, and it provides autonomy, resources, and mentorship to select, mount, and produce their own full-scale show from start to finish. Students take on every aspect of production, from performing, directing, and stage management, to designing and building sets, creating costumes, running sound and lights, marketing, production management, and more. Village Theatre's entire professional staff — from the shops to the marketing office to the stage managers and beyond — are involved in mentoring the artistic team, all of whom are considered professional interns. The Summer Independent program is an entry point to professional theatre for the entire production team and Summer Independent performers are challenged with the goal of reaching the highest professional standards possible. The program is a breeding ground for tomorrow's top talents. In the last few years, Summer Independent participants have gone on to college at The Juilliard School, Boston Conservatory, University of Washington, Carnegie Mellon University, Western Washington University, Pennsylvania State, Point Park College, Whitman College, New York University, Yale, Cornish College for the Arts, and Cal Arts. Many have performed professionally both locally and nationally at venues such as Village Theatre Mainstage, Seattle Opera, The Paramount Theatre, A Contemporary Theatre, 5th Avenue Theatre, Seattle Children's Theatre, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, On and Off-Broadway, movies, and television. Past Summer Independent shows have included: Assassins, Urinetown, Chicago, … Spelling Bee, Pippin, You're A Good Man Charlie Brown, The Fantasticks, Lost In Yonkers, Little Shop of Horrors, Sweeney Todd, All Shook Up, The Spitfire Grill, and West Side Story.

    The Summer Independent artistic team members, ideally, have previously participated as TAP students and/or have some experience working on productions at Village Theatre Mainstage or KIDSTAGE.
