PCS Theater has announced the upcoming production of "Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein" (West End Version), running from December 15th to December 30th at The Players Club of Swarthmore, 614 Fairview Road, Swarthmore, PA.

This monstrously entertaining musical, featuring music and lyrics by the legendary Mel Brooks, with a book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, promises a hilarious and electrifying experience under the direction of Amanda Pasquini. Kennedy McAlister leads the music direction, while Tess Sinatra brings her choreographic prowess to the stage. The production boasts a stellar creative team with set design by PJ Williams, costume design by Betsy Berwick, make-up design by Lucy Moth, and props design by Denise Kolodziej. Rich Farella is the Stage Manager and Hanae Togami is the Assistant Director.

Frederick, with the help of his quirky sidekick, Igor (Matthew Moorhead), and alluring lab assistant, Inga (Devon Duffy), finds himself reluctantly stepping into the shoes of his mad scientist ancestors. With the iconic exclamation, "It's alive!" Frederick brings to life a creature that rivals his grandfather's creation.
