Press Release

Just in Time for Halloween, Davis Musical Theatre Company, virtually presents, Mel Brooks’ YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, the musical (underwritten by Dave & Rachel Lyman). Young Frankenstein, the brainchild of the legendary writer/director Mel Brooks, will open on Facebook Live, this Friday, Oct. 16 through Oct. 25. Young Frankenstein originally scheduled to run in the month of April, shut down due to the pandemic. DMTC is now going virtual until we all can perform in person! This is a free event, but DMTC is gratefully accepting donations, as this is our only income. Steve Isaacson will direct, with Andi Bourquin chorography and Jonathan Rothman musical direction. This production may not be suitable for young ones.

Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronken-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally) and the weird housekeeper Frau Blucher (insert horse whinny here!), and Hugo Figueroa as the lovable Monster, 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. Every bit as relevant to audience members who will remember the original as it will be to newcomers, Young Frankenstein has all the of panache of the screen sensation with a little extra theatrical flair added. It will surely be the perfect opportunity for a production company to showcase an array of talents. With such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven, monstrously good entertainment.

Young Frankenstein is free to all, with donations to DMTC gladly accepted. Live show dates are Friday, Oct. 16 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 17 at 8 p.m.; Friday, Oct. 23 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 24 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 25 at 2 p.m.. See it at
