PALM BEACH/DELRAY BEACH, FL:  Auditions will be held for the South Florida premiere of Young Frankenstein, Mel Brooks’ popular musical adaptation of his own classic movie at the Palm Beach Day Academy on August 11 from 7- 9:30 pm and August 13 from 7-9:30 pm. Entr’Acte Theatrix, whose recent productions of Into the Woods, Avenue Q, Spamalot, and The Rocky Horror Show have consistently filled the Crest Theatre, will produce the musical from October 22nd through November 1st at the popular Delray Beach venue.

A wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend, Brooks’ comedy masterpiece follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that’s Fronkensteen!) as he attempts to complete his grandfather’s masterwork and bring a corpse to life. Together with his oddly shaped and endearing helper Igor (that’s Eye-gor), his curvaceous lab assistant Inga, and in spite of his incredibly self-involved madcap fiancé Elizabeth, Frankenstein succeeds in creating a monster — but not without scary and quite often hilarious complications.
