Music Theatre: Young Frankenstein

Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre presents: Young Frankenstein

Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), 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 continuously abounds.

Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks
Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan

Così fan tutte

Set on Shenandoah Conservatory’s main proscenium stage and directed each year by a different distinguished guest artist, Main Stage Opera provides audiences with the full opera experience! The classic romantic comedy Così fan tutte follows two sisters whose devotion to their beloved fiancés is cynically put to the test by their own lovers with help from the conniving Alfonso and mischievous Despina. Mozart’s radiant score, performed by the Shenandoah Conservatory Symphony Orchestra, is cleverly juxtaposed with one of the most bittersweet stories of deceit, fidelity and love.

Sung in Italian with English titles.

Duration: Approximately 170 minutes*

Figaro

BY CHARLES MOREY DIRECTED BY SARA GOMEZ

In this hilarious adaptation of Beaumarchais’ comic masterpiece, Figaro mischievously skewers the aristocracy, whilst dodging obstacles in the way of his anticipated betrothal. Set in 18th century France, the playwright creates a clever balance between then…and now!

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown!

Currently celebrating its 50th Anniversary!

YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN (Revised) is a fresh approach to the all-time 1967 classic, based on the beloved comic strip by Charles Schultz. Sally Brown joins Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Schroeder, and Snoopy in this charming revue of vignettes and songs.

Out in the Street by Graham Knight
Bob and Cammy are living “The Dream” – at least that’s what they keep telling themselves. They even have the 4 bedroom house and a 10 year old son to prove it, but when Bob’s childhood catches up with him, he and Cammy find themselves trapped between Bob’s long-divorced parents with nowhere to hide.

Sunday, Feb 10 @ 2 p.m.
Saints & Martyrs by Betsy Arnett
Lydia has it all – a devoted husband, two grown children, and a successful catering business – but life isn’t turning out the way she expected. There are no grandchildren on the way, her mother keeps escaping from the assisted living facility, and her free-spirited sister is not helping.
