It’s alive!! The electrifying adaptation of Mel Brooks’ monstrously funny film will leave you in stitches. Frederick, grandson of the famous Dr. Frankenstein, inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of his sidekick, Igor, and a leggy lab assistant, Inga, Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist mode 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. Puttin on the Ritz, Join the Family Business, Welcome to Transylvania are few of the tunes added to this musical romp.

The Brothers Grimm hit the stage with an epic fairytale about wishes, family and the choices we make. Everyone’s favorite storybook characters are brought together for a rare modern classic. The story follows a baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s festival; and Jack who wishes his cow would give milk. When all of their tales and the tales of other fairytale characters lead to the woods and become intertwined, dreams come true and wishes are granted. Their happiness has consequences though, and the characters are forced to band together to save the world from destruction. The musical score by Stephen Sondheim is breathtaking.
