Young Frankenstein is billed thus: "Based on the Oscar-nominated smash hit 1974 film,Young Frankenstein is the wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Mary Shelley classic from the comic genius of Mel Brooks. When Frederick Frankenstein, an esteemed New York brain surgeon and professor, inherits a castle and laboratory in Transylvania from his grandfather, deranged genius Dr. Victor Von Frankenstein, he faces a dilemma. Does he continue to run from his family’s tortured past, or does he stay in Transylvania to carry on his grandfather’s mad experiments reanimating the dead and, in the process, to fall in love with his sexy lab assistant Inga? Unfolding in the forbidding Castle Frankenstein and the foggy moors of Transylvania Heights, the show’s raucous score includes 'The Transylvania Mania,' 'He Vas My Boyfriend,' and an unforgettable treatment of Irving Berlin’s 'Puttin’ On the Ritz.'"

The cast includes Googie Uterhardt as Dr. Frederick Frankenstein, Alison Wilhoit as Inga, Austin Tijerinaas Igor, Marti Melle Lindstrom as Frau Blucher, Blake Burgess as The Monster,  Alan Kilpatrick as Inspector Kemp and Harold and Mary Nye Bennett as Elizabeth.
