Zany characters, hilarious dialogue, side-splitting lyrics and shocking special effects -- that's what will electrify you as Magic Circle Players present Mel Brooks' musical Young Frankenstein. You'll be in stitches and dancing in your seats as the energy from the large cast ensemble brings a new meaning to the memorable line "It's alive!"
Based on his cult-classic film, Mel Brooks wrote both the music and lyrics for his musical version of Young Frankenstein. Be prepared to sing along to such rollicking tunes as The Transylvania Mania and He Vas My Boyfriend and the one-of-a-kind, monstrously-funny song and dance rendition of Puttin' On The Ritz.
