A New Musical Comedy in York

Pick Me Up Theatre bring you the premiere of Mel Brooks’ YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN at The Grand Opera House York 

30th October – 4th November 2023

Legendary filmmaker and comedian Mel Brooks brings his classic monster musical comedy Young Frankenstein to life on stage in an all-singing, all-dancing musical.

The horror-movie spoof is gleefully reanimated for the stage with even more jokes, superb set-pieces and barnstorming parody songs that stick a pitchfork into good taste!

Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced ‘Fronk-en-steen’) inherits a castle in Transylvania leading him to fulfill his grandfather’s legacy by bringing a corpse back to life. With help and hindrance from hunchback henchman Igor (What hump?), buxom assistant Inga, devilishly sexy Frau Blucher (Neigh!!!) and needy fiancee Elizabeth, his experiment yields madcap success and monstrous consequences.
