Young Frankenstein

September 23, 2016

Young-FrankensteinPalos Verdes Performing Arts opens the 2016-17 season on September 23 with Mel Brooks’ zany, Broadway hit musical comedy, Young Frankenstein at the Norris Theatre.

The electrifying stage adaptation of Brooks’ monstrously funny film comes from the creators of the Tony-winning sensation, The Producers.

In this reimagining of the famous legend, the grandson of mad scientist Victor Frankenstein inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania, and with the help of his hunchbacked sidekick and leggy lab assistant, he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather’s.

With wickedly inspired, show-stopping production numbers including Transylvania Mania, He Vas My Boyfriend and Puttin’ on the Ritz, Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven great entertainment. The musical features a 14-piece orchestra, professional cast, and sets and costumes from the national tour of Young Frankenstein.

Performance times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, plus 2 p.m. matinees on Saturday October 1 and October 8.

Ticket prices range from $55 to $65, plus a $5 per ticket facility fee. The production is not recommended for children under 13.

The production runs through October 9 at the Norris Theatre.
