Youthlight 2014 presents
Sweeney Todd

August 1, 2, 6, 7, 8 & 9 at 7:30pm
August 3 at 2:00pm
*Please note the date change for our Youthlight show*

Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous barber-ism and culinary crime tells the infamous tale of the unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th century London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. His thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers, and the resourceful proprietress of the pie shop downstairs soon has the people of London lining up in droves with her mysterious new meat pie recipe! Sophisticated, macabre, visceral and uncompromising, Sweeney Todd nevertheless has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with howlingly funny moments of dark humor: audiences find themselves laughing hysterically one moment and gasping in surprise the next.

Young Frankenstein
Regional Premiere!

September 12, 13, 17, 18, 19 & 20 at 7:30pm
September 14 at 2:00pm
*Please note the date change for this season mainstage show*

IT’S ALIVE! From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation The Producers comes this monster new musical comedy. The story 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 helper Igor (that’s Eye-gor), his curvaceous lab assistant Inga, and fiancé Elizabeth, Frankenstein succeeds in creating a monster—but not without scary and quite often hilarious complications. With such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ On The Ritz,” The New MEL BROOKS Musical YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is scientifically-proven, monstrously good entertainment.
