On August 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 2021 Ja’Duke will present its production of the Mel Brooks musical Young Frankenstein, the horror-comedy tunefest based on the uproariously funny 1974 Mel Brooks film Young Frankenstein. This hilarious adaptation features the music and lyrics of Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan.
Young Frankenstein tells the story of Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (played by Justin Begin), a professor at a medical school who leaves behind his fiancée Elizabeth (Jessica Thompson) and travels to Transylvania to claim the estate of his grandfather – the creator of the famous Frankenstein monster. After years spent rejecting his family name, the doctor is helped by the castle’s current residents – Frau Blucher (Juniper Holmes), Igor (William LaPlante), and Inga (Samantha Myburgh) — in bringing his own monster (BJ Kulp) to life, with hilarious and unexpected results.
This Ja’Duke production features a cast of 40 in singing, dancing, and acting roles. It is directed by Ja’Duke’s Founder Nick Waynelovich with Choreography by Eula Sagan and additional direction by Jessica Thompson.
Director Nick Waynelovich thought it was very important that the first show opening at the the Ja’Duke Theater post Covid 19 be a funny, forget-your-troubles comedy. Proving to be not only funny but laugh-a-minute hilarious, Young Frankenstein will easily score a 10 plus on the laugh scale! Please join us at the Ja’Duke Theater for an evening of uproarious fun and frivolity. Young Frankenstein is rated PG13.
