YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN Comes to the Omaha Community Playhouse, 5/30-6/29
The Omaha Community Playhouse (OCP) will produce the Mel Brooks musical Young Frankenstein, May 30-June 29, 2014.
IT'S ALIVE! The Mel Brooks masterpiece Young Frankenstein is the riotously funny story of Dr. Frankenstein (that's Fronkensteen) and his adventures as he embraces the family name and creates a monster with his partners, hunchbacked Igor (that's Eye-gore), voluptuous Inga and in spite of his prudish fiance?e Elizabeth. Packed with delightfully nutty songs and flashy dance numbers such as "Puttin' on the Ritz," Young Frankenstein is monstrously clever and fun.
Young Frankenstein features Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan; Music and lyrics by Mel Brooks. Director: Carl Beck; Assistant director: Susan Baer Collins; Music director: Jim Boggess; and Choreographer: Melanie Walters.
