Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein - DMTC Virtual Main Stage

A LIVE, VIRTUAL PRODUCTION!

NEW DATES!!  Our virtual production will run October 16 - 25, 2020!

All performances will be presented FREE via Zoom over Facebook Live.

It's alive! The electrifying adaptation of Mel Brooks' monstrously funny film will leave you in stitches. Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced "Fronk-en-steen") inherits his family's estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced "Eye-gore"), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. "It's alive!" he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather's. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds. Every bit as relevant to audience members who will remember the original as it will be to newcomers, Young Frankenstein has all the of panache of the screen sensation with a little extra theatrical flair added. It will surely be the perfect opportunity for a production company to showcase an array of talents. With such memorable tunes as "The Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz," Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven, monstrously good entertainment.

Mel Brooks' - The Producers - January 8 through January 31, 2021

The Producers tells the story of a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer, Max Bialystock, and a nerdy, young accountant, Leo Bloom, who concoct a scheme to raise thousands of dollars from backers and then put on a flop of a show. With all the money that will be leftover, the pair will be rich! Only one thing goes wrong: the show is a gigantic hit! Some of Mel Brooks' irreverent humor.

Urinetown - March 5 through March 28, 2021

Terrible title, Funny show! Nominated for 10 Tony Awards and taking home 3, Urinetown is a satirical comedy musical, that pokes fun at the everything, from government bureaucracy and the legal system to corporate America’s mismanagement and social irresponsibility. The show even parodies the Broadway musical itself.  With music by Mark Hollmann, lyrics by Hollmann and Greg Kotis, Urinetown, boasts itself as the show with a terrible title, but a great show that brings a surprise ending to this unorthodox and thought provoking musical.

Evita - April 30 through May 23, 2021

Underwritten by Suzy Goldschmidt, in honor of David Goldschmidt

Argentina’s controversial First Lady is the subject of EVITA, Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice's dynamic musical masterpiece. Escaping her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires, Eva Peron, “saint to the working-class and reviled by the aristocracy,” was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Featuring such iconic songs as “On This Night of a Thousand Stars,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall,” and “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.

Disney's Mary Poppins - June 25 through July 18, 2021

The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."
