IT’S ALIVE!!!!!!

Celebrate the Halloween season by checking out NOVA’s newest production of Mel Brooks’ musical, Young Frankenstein. With laughs, costumes, catchy toe-tapping music, and a giant dancing Frankenstein monster – you can’t help but have a fantastic, entertaining evening.

The hilarious, musical comedy is a re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend based on Mel Brooks’ film masterpiece. The story follows Young Frankenstein (pronounced ‘Fronkensteen’) as he brings a corpse back to life. Don’t miss the kooky cast of characters delivering all your favorite moments from the classic film: the hunchback sidekick, Igor (that’s pronounced ‘Eye-gor’); the curvaceous lab assistant, Inga; the stern housekeeper, Frau Blucher; the mad-cap fiancé, Elizabeth; and of course, the monster, Frankenstein.

Directed by Vincent Raye and starring seasoned performers, Kyle Trott, Bobbi Hawk, Tiffany Melia, Vint Lavinder and Susan Sommerfeld, Young Frankenstein is sure to entertain your entire family, and you’ll have a monstrously good time!

Young Frankenstein will be playing Oct 18-20, Oct 25-26, & Oct 31-Nov2 at NOVA Center for the Performing Arts, 2317 Montana Ave.Billings, MT59101. All evening performances are at 7:30 P.M., and the Sunday matinée is at 2:00 P.M.
