Mel Brook’s comedy classic film, Young Frankenstein comes to Nathan Hale High School


It’s alive!  Mel Brook’s comedy classic film, Young Frankenstein, comes to life as a knee-slapping, toe-tapping musical.  

Frederick Frankenstein inherits his grandfather’s Transylvania estate, though he is reluctant to take on the family business of creating monsters.  But with the help of a collection of eccentric characters, he will bring the dead back to life and find his true destiny.  

This monstrously funny musical runs May 7, 8, 9, 14, 15 & 16 performing at 7:30 pm at Nathan Hale High School’s Performing Arts Center. Tickets will be available on line and at the door.
