Elkhorn area actors to star in Lakeland Players' production of 'Young Frankenstein'

ELKHORN — “It’s alive!”

Lakeland Players brings to the stage the Mel Brooks musical “Young Frankenstein.”

It is based on the 1974 comedy film of the same name written by Brooks and Gene Wilder, who described it as his best film. Madeline Kahn, Peter Boyle, Terri Garr and Marty Feldman also appeared in the movie.

The plot follows lecturer, Dr. Frederick Frankenstein, played by Stephen Brellenthin, of Elkhorn, as he learns that he has inherited his grandfather’s estate in Transylvania.

Arriving at the castle, Frankenstein begins to recreate his grandfather’s experiments with the help of Igor, his hunchback sidekick, played by Katherine Schoofs, of Delavan.
