This is a non-equity, non-paid production led by Director/Choreographer Alison Mattiza and Musical Director Catherine Rahm, produced by Lori A. Marple-Pereslete by special arrangement with Musical Theatre International. Performance dates are November 11 to December 17, 2016 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm. (with one possible Thursday night performance added) Auditions and performances take place at the Westchester Playhouse, located at 8301 Hindry Avenue in Los Angeles, CA 90045. YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is a wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend based on the 1974 comedy film of the same name written by Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder. This hilarious musical is a parody of the horror film genre, especially the 1931 Universal Pictures adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and its 1939 sequel, Son of Frankenstein. The story follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein as he attempts to complete his grandfathers masterwork and bring a corpse to life. But this musical comedy hit, winner of the 2008 Outer Critics Circle Award, is not without scary and hilarious complications. Great fun for the whole family.
