Upcoming events

Young Frankenstein, Mamer, 8-12 November

The Frankenstein movies of the 1930s, starring Boris Karloff, were based on the novel, Frankenstein, written by Mary Shelley which was first published in 1818. Then in 1974, Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder wrote the screen play for Young Frankenstein and was directed by Mel Brooks.  It was a spoof based on the earlier 1930s movies. More recently, in 2007, Mel Brooks decided to create a stage version and to write songs to accompany the dialogue and hence the musical version was born.  The original humour from the film remains but with even more jokes.  It promises to be a very enjoyable show where the audience will go home having forgotten all their troubles and woes and maybe singing the odd tune or two!
