Laguna Blanca School Bringing ‘Young Frankenstein’ to Life

Laguna Blanca School's production of Young Frankenstein runs April 23-25.

It's alive! Laguna Blanca School presents Mel Brooks' musical comedy classic Young Frankenstein, the wickedly inspired reimagining of the Frankenstein legend, brought to life by a cast of witty characters performed by the talented Laguna Blanca Upper School students April 23-25.

Young Frankenstein is a theatrical production of monstrously good entertainment for musical lovers of all ages, delivering all your favorite show-stopping tunes with absurd hilarity.

Young Frankenstein follows the bright young Dr. Frankenstein as he attempts to complete his grandfather's masterpiece and bring a corpse to life. Together with his oddly shaped and endearing helper Igor, his curvaceous lab assistant Inga and his narcissistic madcap fiancée Elizabeth, Dr. Frankenstein succeeds in creating a monster— however, not without some creepy and often hilarious complications.

It features a sensational cast of Laguna Blanca students, including Tavis Smillie, Mitchell Gravelle, Mathew Goldsholl, Valeria Rodriguez, Bea Tolan, Joan Curran, Jackson Hurley, Fiona Flynn, Charlotte Thomas, Bjorn Lindskog, Maddy Lazarovitz, Simon Lea, Camila Lemere, Aura Carlson, Laird Fowler, Rose Houglet, Brooklyn Kinsler and Sofia Bakaev.

Director Kate Bergstrom, the school's head of the Drama Department, leads an incredibly talented production team of students, faculty, family and friends, including assistant director and costumer designer Dana Ortner, technical head and lighting designer Conner Warren, stage manager Zoe Levy, music director Ben Saunders and choreographer Jessica Hambright.

Dare to witness the science lab spectacle of Young Frankenstein coming to life at 7 p.m. April 23-25 at Laguna Blanca School's Spaulding Auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. For more information, please contact Kate Bergstrom at 805.687.1752 x217 or [email protected].

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
