SACRAMENTO — Runaway Stage Productions invites you to “put on the Ritz” with Dr. Frankenstein, his dancing monster and a host of memorable characters at a premiere production of Mel Brook’s musical “Young Frankenstein,” playing through Jan. 26 at the 24th Street Theatre.
From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation “The Producers” comes this new monster musical comedy. A wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend based on Mel Brooks’ classic masterpiece film, the story follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that’s Frankensteen) as he attempts to complete his grandfather’s work and bring a corpse to life.
With such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ On The Ritz,” the Mel Brook’s musical “Young Frankenstein” is scientifically-proven, monstrously good entertainment … and the only place you’ll witness a singing and dancing laboratory experiment in the largest tuxedo ever made.
The RSP cast features Sacramento favorites David Holmes (“How to Succeed”) as Frankenstein, Amy Jones as Inga, Eduard Arakelyan (“Wizard of Oz”) as Igor, Ruth Phillips (“9 to 5”) as Frau Blucher, and Michael Cross as the Monster. Bob Baxter directs, Darryl Strohl choreographs and Deann Golz directs the RSP Resident Orchestra.
Young Frankenstein performs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 .m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through Jan. 26. Tickets are $25 for adults, $23 for seniors (60+), $21 for students/SARTA and $18 for children (12 and younger); groups of 10 pr more pay $19 per ticket. Purchase them online at runawaystage.com (reservation convenience fees apply) or at the door. The 24th Street Theatre is located at 2791 24th St. in downtown Sacramento.
