HANOVER, Pa. — While we're in the throws of summer, Acts of Kindness Theatre Company's annual show gives us a bit of a comedic fright at Hanover's Eichelberger Performing Arts Center with "Young Frankenstein."
"It's going to be such a different production, especially for AOK Theatre," Hillary Miller, who plays Inga in the production, told FOX43. "They've done a lot of family, Disney productions over the years. This is such a different kind of genre for them. Audiences will be very surprised."
Putting the Mel Brooks film to the stage brings new elements to the show the cast says, but not without its revered charm.
"Bringing it to the stage just brings it to this heightened theatrical sense," Vinny Beck, who plays Dr. Frankenstein, said. "Adding the music to it just brings it up. It's a feel good night."
The cast has one true hope for the audience as they laugh, sing, and enjoy one of the rare performances with this company each year.
"Forget about the world for a little bit, and just sit and enjoy a really comedic piece of theatre," Miller said.
You can see "Young Frankenstein" at the Eichelberger Performing Arts Center in Downtown Hanover July 29 through Aug. 7. For more information, visit the theater's website.
