"Young Frankenstein" -- Oct. 5 to 22, 2017"Young Frankenstein"
The New Mel Brooks Musical
Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks

Directed by Bill Morgan
Choreographed by Conni Fleming
Musical Direction by John Ebner

It's alive! The electrifying adaptation of Mel Brooks' monstrously funny film will leave you in stitches!

From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation The Producers comes this monsterly new musical comedy. Comedy genius Mel Brooks has adapted his legendarily funny film into a brilliant stage creation – Young Frankenstein!

Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced "FRONK-en-steen") inherits his family's estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced "EYE-gore"), and a leggy lab assistant named Inga (pronounced normally!), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. "It's alive!" he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather's. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds.

With such memorable tunes as "The Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz," Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven to be monstrously good entertainment!

Young Frankenstein is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. The videotaping or other video or audio recording of this production is strictly prohibited.

"Talking With..." -- Nov 2 to 12, 2017"Talking With..."
A dramatic comedy by Jane Martin

Directed by Deb Lemire

Talking With… is a play comprised of monologues, each eight to ten minutes long and featuring a different female character who talks about her life and her own personal ordeals.

SPONSORED BY
MARGARET J. DIETZ

These extraordinary monologues received a standing ovation when they premiered at famed Kentucky regional theater company Actors Theatre of Louisville. These idiosyncratic characters amuse, move and frighten, always speaking from the depths of their souls. They include a baton twirler, a fundamentalist snake handler, an ex rodeo rider and an actress willing to go to any length to get a job.

PRESENTED IN
PARTNERSHIP WITH
BIG LOVE NETWORK

Many of the monologues are touching, some are intensely emotional, and a couple are even comical. All of the pieces, however, show how the varied experiences and events in one's life affect who we are as humans.

Audience Advisory: Due to adult language and themes, this play is not suitable for children.

Talking With... is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. The videotaping or other video or audio recording of this production is strictly prohibited.
