The grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein inherits his family's estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor and a leggy lab assistant, Inga, 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 abounds.

Come prepared to sing a song and tell a joke or funny story.  The song may be one you choose from the show, but it doesn’t have to be.  The point is to give us an idea of your singing ability and vocal range.  Our accompanist may determine your vocal range.  Bring a karaoke track or the sheet music for the song you will be singing.  The joke or funny story will give us an idea of your level of comfort when performing.  We will also do readings from the script.
