Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks
A wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend based on the Mel Brook's classic movie. The story follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (or Fronkensteen) as he attempts to complete his grandfather's masterwork and bring a corpse to life. Along with his endearing but oddly shaped helper, Igor, and his curvaceous lab assistant, Inga, they succeed in creating a monster but not without hilarious complications.
* This production contains mild language and some risque humor

Both a joyous celebration of youth and a poignant journey through a tumultuous 1960s America, this musical centers on a group of teenagers searching for truth, peace and love in Vietnam War era America. With a song list of chart toppping hits such as "Aquarius," "Let the Sun Shine In" and "Good Morning, Starshine," this musical, while seemingly from another era, is just as vital and relevant to the times we live in today.
* For mature audiences
