Tacoma Musical Playhouse to Close 2013-14 Season with YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, 7/11-8/3

Tacoma- Tacoma Musical Playhouse (TMP), the region's largest community theater, concludes its 20th anniversary season with the upcoming musical Young Frankenstein. Young Frankenstein opens July 11th and runs through August 3rd.

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 he has inherited his grandfather's castle in Transylvania, he is forced to resolve the issue of the property.

A wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend based on Mel Brooks' classic comedy masterpiece, the musical follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein as he attempts to complete his grandfather's masterwork and brings a corpse to life. Together with his oddly shaped and endearing helper Igor, Frankenstein succeeds in creating a monster, but not without scary and often hilarious complications. Memorable tunes include "The Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz." Young Frankenstein is scientifically-proven, monstrously good entertainment...and the only place you'll witness a singing and dancing laboratory experiment in the largest tuxedo ever made.
