The comedy genius, Mel Brooks, adapts his legendary film into a brilliant stage creation – Young Frankenstein . Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and lab assistant, Inga, 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.
This year’s show features a cast of 41 (the largest cast to date). Cast members include Christian Ruiz (senior) as Frederick, Kayla Jarry (senior) as Inga, Dylan Robb (senior) as Igor, Miah Aguirre (junior) as Frau Blucher
Sean Eagle (senior) plays the Monster, Alexa Lugo (senior) is Elizabeth, Gavin Powell (junior) as Inspector Kemp, Dean Reynolds (senior) as Victor Frankenstein and the Hermit, and Isaiah Stacy-Sutton (freshman) as Ziggy.
“The film ‘Young Frankenstein’ is one of the most popular comedies of all time,” says Chaparral teacher and director Chris Irvin. “Directing the musical version carries a lot of responsibility because there are many things the audience is expecting to see. The cast and crew have been working since January and I know the audience will not be disappointed. I’m very proud of this group and the level of professionalism they bring to their craft.”
General admission is $12; all students, military personnel, and seniors 55+ are admitted for $10.
