Transylvania Mania Hits the Stage at UTC!
It’s alive! The electrifying adaptation of Mel Brooks’ monstrously funny film will leave you in stitches. “In this show, as in the movie it’s based on, Mel Brooks creates the character of Frederick Frankenstein, whose entire ancestry has created monsters by trying to resurrect the dead,” says director Steve Ray. "So basically, it’s the story of one man who must come to terms with his legacy—plus jokes about private parts.” Mayhem, hijinks and old-fashioned production numbers follow.
“For UTC Theatre Company, this is a pretty large cast. Our student actors are really impressive in this. They are singing and dancing and making us laugh; their energy will be infectious.” Steve Ray says, “If you like parodies, horror movies, old-fashioned musicals, bawdy humor, and twisted science, you’ll love this production.”
