OPENING SOON: THE MEL BROOKS MUSICAL, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN

Frankenstein.jpg

The Mel Brooks Musical,

Young Frankenstein

From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation, The Producers, comes this monster musical comedy. The comedy genius, Mel Brooks, adapts his legendarily funny 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 a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), 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.

CHURCH & STATE By Jason Odell Williams

As his devoutly Christian wife and liberal Jewish campaign manager try to contain the damage, this look at how religion influences politics and how politics has become a religion is simultaneously funny and heartbreaking.

Frankenstein

YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN
Director: Daniel Eilola
Music Director: Ed Kolcz
Choreographer: Joanne DePrizio
Synopsis: From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation, The Producers, comes this monster musical comedy. The comedy genius, Mel Brooks, adapts his legendarily funny 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 a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), 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. Every bit as relevant to audience members who will remember the original as it will be to newcomers, Young Frankenstein has all the of panache of the screen sensation with a little extra theatrical flair added. It will surely be the perfect opportunity for a production company to showcase an array of talents. With such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven, monstrously good entertainment.
Audition Dates: August 6th & 7th at 7pm with possible callbacks on August 8th at 7 pm at the Lake Worth Playhouse.
No appointment necessary.
Production Dates: October 4th – 21st 2018
Please prepare 16 bars of a song in the style of the show.

Characters:
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein – A famous scientist dedicated to his work and innocent of the world at large. Intent to distance himself from his notorious grandfather whose scientific legacy is less than legitimate. A warm lyric Baritone who sings to E-flat, and a comic actor who combines the manic energy of Danny Kaye with the charm and elegance of Fred Astaire..
Elizabeth Benning – Frederick’s spoiled and self-centered fiancée. Great comic role. A lyric Soprano with wide range (to High C) who can deliver a showy coloratura fireworks with complete ease. Music has a comic-operetta-ish sensibility that reflects the songs of Romberg, Herbert, Friml, and early Kern
Igor – A hunchback servant at the Frankenstein estate in Transylvania. Great comic role. High light Baritone (to F#), should have the nimble charm to sing English music hall style songs with show-biz savvy.
Inga – A young local Transylvanian woman who becomes Dr. Frankenstein’s eager assistant. Oblivious to her own sexuality and appeal. A bright, clear youthful Broadway Mezzo with a high sustained belt to D-flat and a sweet mixed voice that extends up to high E.
Frau Blucher – the housekeeper at the Frankenstein estate. She keeps the secrets of the past. A great slyly comic role. Requires skilled, dark, dramatic Lotte Lenya Alto with a real sense of the Berlin Cabaret world of the 1920s and 30s. Solid belt up to B-flat and a workable mix that extends up to E-flat.
Inspector Hans Kemp/Blind Man: one actor to play both roles. Head of the local police with highly developed sense of his own power and a keen desire to keep order in the town. The Blind Man is a recluse who enjoys a meal with Frankenstein’s monster. This double role requires a great comic, transformational actor. Big legit Bass-Baritone voice that can really open up and soar to high F. Should demonstrate very dramatic singing chops in terms of volume and the break-your-heart quality of a singer, like Al Jolson in his prime.
The Monster – The monster created when Dr. Frankenstein performs his famous brain transplant. Bass-Baritone with good legit sound up to E-flat. Physically imposing.
Ensemble – (Gravediggers, Villagers, Medical Students, Passengers, Mad Scientists and other various roles) Singers with big, healthy voices, impeccable diction and wide ranges. Sopranos should not hesitate in showing off their sustained high notes and Basses should give us their best low. Also, specifically looking for a real old-fashioned Barbershop Quartet Top Tenor. Also looking for tap dancers to include in the ensemble.

Barefoot

Barefoot in the Park by Neil Simon
Director: Clayton Phillips
Synopsis: Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. He’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she’s a free spirit always looking for the latest kick. Their new apartment is her most recent find – too expensive with bad plumbing and in need of a paint job. After a six-day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic, Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does. Paul just doesn’t understand Corie, as she sees it. He’s too staid, too boring, and she just wants him to be a little more spontaneous. Running “barefoot in the park” would be a start.
Audition Dates: September 24th at 7pm, September 25th at 7:30pm at the Lake Worth Playhouse
Please prepare a 2 minute comedic monologue. You may be asked to read from the script.
Performance Dates: November 16th – December 2nd 2018
