Directed by: Heidi Anderson

From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation, The Producers, comes this monster new musical comedy. The comedy genius, Mel Brooks, adapts his legendarily funny film into a brilliant stage creation – Young Frankenstein!

Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced "Fronk-en-steen") inherits his family's estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced "Eye-gore"), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes 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.

Young Frankenstein
Character Descriptions

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein
Male, age 25-45 Brilliant brain surgeon, professor and grandson
of mad scientist, Dr. Victor Von Frankenstein. A comic actor who combines the manic energy of Danny Kaye with the charm and elegance of Fred Astaire.
Tenor or Baritone

The Monster
Male, age indeterminate. Played by a bigger man
–the bigger the better. The
misunderstood creation of Dr. Frankenstein.
Vocal range: Bass-Baritone with good legit sound up to E-flat.

Knowledge of tap dancing a plus but not necessary.

Male, age 20-45. Frederick’s faithful, bright-eyed, eager servant and friend with a hunchback. Great comic role. High light Baritone (to F#), should have the nimble charm to sing English music hall style songs and the show-biz savvy of Jimmy Durante.

Female, age 20-35. Frederick’s bubbly young assistant. Sexy, attractive. Oblivious to her own sexuality and appeal. A resident of Transylvania.
Soprano (yodel a plus)

Elizabeth Benning
Female, age 20s/30s. Frederick’s spoiled and self-centered fiancée. Great comic role. A lyric Soprano with wide range (to High C) who can deliver a showy coloratura fireworks with complete ease. Music has a comic-operetta-ish sensibility that reflects the songs of Romberg, Herbert, Friml, and early Kern.

Frau Blücher (whinney..!)

Female, age 30s/40s/50s or older. Intense, stern housekeeper of
Frankenstein estate. Former lover of Victor Frankenstein. A great slyly comic role. Requires skilled, dark, dramatic Lotte Lenya Alto with a real sense of the Berlin Cabaret world of the 1920s and 30s.

Inspector Hans Kemp
Male, age 40s/50s. Head of the police in Transylvania, with a wooden
arm and leg. Justice driven.

Blind Hermit

Male, age 30s /40s/50s Lonely, poor, blind town hermit longing for a friend.

Dr. Victor Von Frankenstein
Male, age 40s/50s. Frederick’s infamous grandfather.


Male, age 18 to 30s. Well intentioned village idiot.


Some of the Ensemble could be doubled as Inspector Kent, Blind Hermit, Dr Victor Frankenstein or Ziggy or those parts doubled with non-chorus. Looking for approximately 4 women and 4 men for ensemble that will have plenty of featured roles, lot of juicy lines and singing, including a barbershop quartet. Portraying gravediggers, villagers, Mr. Hilltop, medical students, passengers, mad scientists.
