Young Frankenstein On Stage at Roger Rocka’s

by Terrance McArthur

Do you remember the first time you saw the Mel Brooks/Gene Wilder movie Young Frankenstein? It was so different than anything you’d ever seen, and you laughed . . . a lot. Now, imagine seeing it live on stage, with people up there . . . singing and dancing! The laughter level in your brain must be going off the chart! You can have that feeling now at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater, thanks to the rollicking Good Company Players production of Young Frankenstein (the musical) playing through November 6.

Sister Act returns to Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater, with important parts and people from the 2017 Good Company Players production still intact. Camille Gaston is Doloris Van Cartier again, Ethel Birrell returns as a bubbly nun, and Laurie Pessano re-directs with style and strength. All of this against a background of Covid cancellations, substitutions, and understudies that underscore the depth and strength of the GCP casting pool.
