Geneva Theatre Guild presents

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 musical 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 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 of 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.

Geneva Theatre Guild’s presentation of Young Frankenstein is directed by Steven Duprey, choreographed by Barbara Herbert and the musical director is Chris Sauter Milligan.
