After being put on hold for a year and a half due to the COVID-19 shutdown, Town & Country Players present the Mel Brooks musical “Young Frankenstein.”
The show was originally scheduled to run in May 2020 so was fully in rehearsal when the theater had to close its doors for the entire 2020 season. “The one silver lining is that the show is now running in October, the perfect time of year for a monster musical,” Director Jessica Briggs said.
Kevin Palardy plays the lead role of Frederic Frankenstein (it’s pronounced fronk-en-steen). Palardy showed off his comedic abilities during the 2019 season in “A Christmas Story” and “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged).”
“Young Frankenstein” tells the story of the grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, who inherits the family estate in Transylvania. The musical comedy has many big production numbers, the most famous of which is Puttin’ on the Ritz (music and lyrics by Irving Berlin).
“Young Frankenstein” is playing at Town and Country Players on Route 263 in Buckingham and runs weekends from Oct. 15 to 30. Curtain time is 8 p.m. for Friday and Saturday evening shows and 2 p.m. for Saturday and Sunday Matinees.
