‘Young Franken­stein’ opens Friday at cen­ter

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - PREVIEW -

Walk this way — or maybe take a roll in the hay — as “Young Franken­stein,” the mu­si­cal based on Mel Brooks’ smash com­edy film — opens Friday, Oct. 14, at 8 p.m. at The Cen­ter for Per­form­ing Arts, 661 state Route 308, Rhinebeck.

The story fol­lows Dr. Fredrick Franken­stein, who, af­ter years of try­ing to live down the fam­ily rep­u­ta­tion, heads to Tran­syl­va­nia to deal with his in­her­ited es­tate when his grand­fa­ther, Dr. Vic­tor Von Franken­stein, dies. He is slowly drawn into his grand­fa­ther’s work. He soon cre­ates a mon­ster of his own. Hi­lar­ity en­sues.

The Up In One Pro­duc­tion is pro­duced by Diana di Grandi, and di­rected and chore­ographed by Kevin Ar­cham­bault, with mu­si­cal di­rec­tion by Jeri Burns. The cast fea­tures Di­etz Farcher as Dr. Fredrick Franken­stein, Vic­to­ria How­land as El­iz­a­beth, Aubrey Flick as Inga, Rocco Palmieri as Igor, Elaine del Rio as Frau Blucher and Bobby Gr­ef­frath as the Mon­ster. Set and light­ing de­sign is by David Bow­ers, cos­tum­ing by Lob­sang Ca­ma­cho and sound de­sign by Scott Hoskins.
