When the grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania, he finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick and leggy lab assistant, Frederick Frankenstein (it’s “Fronkensteen”) manages to bring to life a creature that rivals his grandfather’s. Of course, the monster quickly escapes, and a hilarious parody of cult horror movies ensues, with the full Broadway treatment.
HOLIDAY VAUDEVILLE X! is the Shane Lalani Center for the Arts’ tenth annual holiday variety show, running two weekends only – from December 8 through December 17, 2017. One of the Shane Center’s most popular events, this two-hour variety show is a high-energy romp through the cherished chestnuts of the season. We’ve assembled yet another intrepid squad of community performers ranging from the sublime to the spastic who will amaze, amuse, and mystify with songs, skits, and vigorous acts of vaudevillian virtuosity – all served up with a heaping helping of heart. It’s fun for the whole family, and virtually guaranteed to get you in the spirit!
Twain’s timeless classic sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River. Their adventures along the way are hilarious, suspenseful, and heartwarming, bringing to life your favorite characters from the novel. Propelled by an award-winning score from Roger Miller, the king of country music, this jaunty journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana.
Lerner and Loewe’s fantastical masterpiece brings the legend of King Arthur to life. CAMELOT tells the story of Arthur, an idealistic young king who hopes to create a kingdom built on honor and dignity, as embodied by his Knights of The Round Table. But just as this utopian vision starts to become a reality, the world of human realities intrudes, and the fate of the kingdom hangs in the balance. This production is performed entirely by students of Park High School.
In a seedy Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, CABARET explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately captivated by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boardinghouse, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who just happens to be Jewish.
