Palos Verdes Performing Arts opens the 2016-17 season with Mel Brooks� zany, Broadway hit musical comedy, �Young Frankenstein.� The production runs through October 9 at the Norris Theatre. The electrifying stage adaptation of Brooks� monstrously funny film comes from the creators of the Tony-winning sensation, �The Producers.� In this reimagining of the famous legend, the grandson of mad scientist Victor Frankenstein inherits his family�s estate in Transylvania, and with the help of his hunchbacked side-kick and leggy lab assistant, he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather�s. With wickedly inspired, show-stopping production numbers including “Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” �Young Frankenstein� is scientifically proven great entertainment. The musical features a 14-piece orchestra, professional cast, and sets and costumes from the national tour of �Young Frankenstein.� Performance times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, plus 2 p.m. matinees on Saturday October 1 and 8. Ticket prices range from $55-$65, plus a $5 per ticket facility fee. The production is not recommended for children under 13.

The Norris Theatre is located at 27570 Norris Center Drive on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
