Said Brooke Edwards, Artistic and Managing Director of the Imperial Centre for the Arts and Sciences:
“If you love the cannon of Mel Brooks films with all of his campy humor and subtle insight into the human condition, then you will love this musical. It is full of humor, huge musical numbers, and it has some of the more talented actors and singers in the area.”
The production will feature the work of guest director James Guy and musical director Benjamin Griffith. Charlie Hines returns as choreographer after serving in the same capacity for the recent productions of Langston Hughes’ Black Nativity. Said Griffith:
“Pairing outstanding local performers with such iconic, show-stopping numbers as “Transylvania Mania” and “Puttin’ On The Ritz” makes this a must-see production.”
