What             

Students from Highlands High School’s Theatre Department will take the audience on a hysterical trip to Transylvania for Young Frankenstein.

Young Frankenstein tells the tale of Frederick Frankenstein, a notable New York neuroscientist who is forced to travel to Transylvania in order to claim his recently departed grandfather’s estate. Upon his arrival, Frankenstein is greeted by a myriad of eccentric characters, including a hunchbacked henchman and a voluptuous, yodeling lab assistant, who try to convince Frederick to continue in his grandfather’s dark work. However dismissive at first, Frankenstein eventually comes around after a dream inspires him to take up his family’s heinous cause. With his eyes set on conquering death, Frankenstein succeeds in creating life. However, his victory soon turns to chaos as a series of hilarious mistakes throws the village into hysteria.

Young Frankenstein is directed by Jason Burgess, longtime theatre director at Highlands. Of the production, he says, “This musical version of Mel Brooks’ parody is simply brilliant and hilarious. They have done a fantastic job of adding comical songs but keeping the classical lines and storyline that everyone remembers.”
