Winnipeg dentists are suiting up for a role in the classical Mel Brooks musical “Young Frankenstein” this week.
From April 9-12, the production will run at the Shaw Performing Arts Centre at The Forks. Proceeds from the show will go to support Variety, the Children’s Charity and inner-city children’s dentistry.
“The show is a lot of goofy fun, and the songs are funny so that’s always a lot of fun,” said Dr. Chris Cottick, section head of adult dentistry, HSC director, WRHA Oral Health Program.
Synopsis: Follow brilliant young Dr. Frankenstein as he leaves his “adorable madcap fiance?e” Elizabeth in New York City and journeys to Transylvania. Meet Frau Blucher, whose loyalty to Grandfather Victor von Frankenstein knows no end because “He Vas My Boyfriend.” Join the lovable hunchback, Igor and the yodelling bombshell, Inga, for a “roll in ze hay.” Watch Frederick bring his creation to life with devilish dancing, show-stopping songs and uproarious results.
Tickets are available now online or by calling (204) 942-8898.
