Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks
Performance Times:
7:30 PM Wednesday through Saturday; 2:00 PM Sunday

From the creators of The Producers comes this wickedly inspired re-imagining of the classic Frankenstein story!

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein) finally succeeds in creating a monster to rival his grandfather’s, but not without some hilarious complications. With the help of his hunchbacked side-kick Igor (“It’s pronounced Eye-gore”), a leggy lab assistant, Inga, and fiancée Elizabeth, Frederick sets to work back in Transylvania to finish what his family started long ago.

Soon the whole audience will be “puttin’ on the ritz!”


The performance on Sunday, Mar. 26, will have live audio description, provided by IRIS. Please contact our ticket office at 515-277-6261 if you would like to use this free service.
