"Young Frankenstein" Auditions Scheduled


August 4, 2016

Kentwood Players will hold open auditions for the musical “YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN” with book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, music and lyrics by Mel Brooks, on Saturday, September 10 from 11 am to 2 pm and Sunday, September 11 from 6 pm to 9 pm. Callbacks by invitation only will be held on Monday, September 12 at 7pm.

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 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 2 pm. (with one possible Thursday night performance added) Auditions and performances will take place at the Westchester Playhouse, located at 8301 Hindry Avenue in Los Angeles.

“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 grandfather’s 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.

With such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and the famous “Puttin’ On The Ritz,” this show is scientifically-proven to be monstrously good entertainment.
