Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein” is one of the highest-rated comedic movies of all time, and starred legendary performers like Gene Wilder, Cloris Leachman, Marty Feldman, and Peter Boyle.  Leeds Arts Council is proud to present the incredible musical based on the original movie!  We hope you will audition!

“Young Frankenstein” is the story of Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced Fronk-in-steen), the dean of medicine at a prestigious American University who has renounced the wild stories of his eccentric grandfather bringing the dead to life.  When his grandfather passes, the estate is left to Frederick who travels to Transylvania to settle the estate and return to marry his wealthy fiance, Elizabeth.  In Transylvania he meets the untrusting townsfolk, lab assistant Inga, and the bizarre Igor (pronounced Eye-gor).  Despite his resistance, Frederick becomes curious as to whether his grandfather’s experiments could actually work with monstrous results!

This show is PG-13, and we would strongly prefer to only have performers that are at least 15 years old.  Be prepared to sing, dance, and have a great time because we have big plans!  Please note that the role of The Creature has already been cast.  If you have any questions, please reach out to either of us at the email addresses listed above.  Once the show has been cast we will set up a Group Me for communications.  The app can be downloaded from your app store, and is very easy to use.
