“Young Frankenstein” Porchlight Players’ 5th annual Valentine’s Day Dinner Theater event.
Frederick Frankenstein, grandson of mad scientist Victor von Frankenstein, is ashamed to be a Frankenstein, insisting his name be pronounced “Fronkensteen” and that he is not a madman but a scientist. When his infamous grandfather dies in Transylvania Heights, Frederick must go to settle family affairs. In a dream, Victor convinces Frederick to “join the family business,” and with the help of Igor, Inga and Frau Blucher, Frederick decides to carry on the experiments in the reanimation of the dead. He instructs Igor to find a large corpse as well as the brain of a scholar. Frederick creates the Creature, who goes on a rampage shortly after waking. Rather than the brain of a scholar, Igor has provided a different brain whose name he recalls as “Abby Normal”. Mayhem ensues as the villagers, led by Inspector Kemp, hunt down Frederick and the “Monster”. In a desperate try to undo the damage and give the Creature a better life, Frederick attempts an intelligence transfer, but the monster doesn’t awaken from the procedure. To make things worse, Inspector Kemp and the angry villagers break into the castle and bring Frederick to the gallows. Can anything be done to save Frederick and his Creature?
