A musical about the Frankenstein family of scientists will be featured on a Washington stage this weekend and next.

The Washington Community Theater is presenting Young Frankenstein directed by Jennifer Wagner and Chris Hanson. Hanson explains the plot of the musical, “Frederick Frankenstein is the grandson of Victor Frankenstein, who is the original Frankenstein in the book. Frederick is a college professor who gets a telegram, basically from Transylvania telling him that he’s inheriting his grandfather’s estate and he needs to go back to Transylvania to take care of business. He’s not wanting to come to grips with being a Frankenstein, being a brilliant brain surgeon that he is, he isn’t into the belief that life can be recreated or brought back to life. It’s just a hilarious comedy that plays on this whole story about his transformation into joining the family business of bringing dead people back to life.” Frankenstein is played by Vern Miller and his sidekick is Igor played by Logan Hanson.

The directors rate the show PG-13 for parents’ discretion. The show will be on the Washington Community Center stage at 7:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday, as well as June 29th and 30th, matinees are at 2:30 p.m. June 24th and July 1st.
