‘Young Frankenstein’ Zoom auditions to be held this weekend

It’s 1934, and the villagers of Transylvania Heights are celebrating the death of their neighborhood mad scientist, Dr. Victor von Frankenstein, certain that the doctor’s neurosurgeon grandson will never appear.

Once he arrives, chaos reigns as the younger scientist is convinced he must take up where his grandfather left off.

The Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop will be conducting auditions for “Young Frankenstein,” the Mel Brooks musical comedy, with its vaudeville-style humor, beloved hunchback, yodeling lab assistant and, of course, its famous monster.

The schedule is as follows:

January 16 from 2-6 p.m.– Individual Zoom appointment

January 17 from 2-6 p.m. – Individual Zoom appointment
