FTC is pleased to announce the cast for their 2020 winter musical, Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein, which opens Friday, February 14th. The production will have nine performances at the Steve W. Shepherd Theater, 1668 Hwy 87 South, Fredericksburg, TX, 78624.
Mel Brooks jolted his classic movie comedy Young Frankenstein back to life with a load of high-wattage hilarious songs, turning it into a monster Broadway hit. Frederick Frankenstein, grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania and sets out to bring honor to his family name by shocking his grandfather’s legacy back to existence. Together with the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor, a curvaceous lab assistant, Inga, and the frightfully eccentric housekeeper Frau Blucher, he just might succeed. The electrifying musical features songs such as "Puttin’ on the Ritz," "The Transylvania Mania," and "He Vas My Boyfriend."
Cast in the production are Justin Elliott as Frederick, Heidi Melton as Elizabeth, Esteban Garza as Igor, Rhonda Behrends as Frau Blucher, Seth Smith as the Hermit, Barry Sikes as The Monster, Faith Kasukonis as Inga, Daniel Melton as Inspector Kemp, and Lucinda Harvey as Ziggy. Playing multiple roles in the ensemble are Addison Powers, Helena McFarland, Sherri Robinson, Holly Robinson, Prari Blair, Christy Brown, Trey Carlson, and Ben Houck.

Daniel Milton will serve as scenic designer and Faith Castañeda will serve as lighting designer. The production will be stage managed by Courtney LeFan. Chasity Trajcheski will serve as the costume designer.
