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.
 
Mel Brooks’ musical retains all of the familiar lunacy that was in the movie. You will still hear all of the iconic lines that you remember. But added to that are songs that will put a tap on your shoe and a laugh in your brain.
 
Now, many of you have enjoyed the movie, perhaps even more than once. You may have seen other theater productions, but you haven’t seen what the NFCT will be presenting. The production will be done like a black and white movie, but live.
“We have transformed the theater, using professional designers who have created sets, costumes and makeup, to simulate a black and white movie,” explains director Bob Kaplan.
Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks.

“They’re the perfect loving family so adoring..”, or so it seems. Next to Normalexplores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness. Dad’s an architect; Mom’s vivacious; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything but normal. Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, Next to Normal is a beautiful, brave look into the seemingly typical American family.  Next to Normal will grace the NFCT stage for the first time with director, Jessica Raven leading the way.

Presented in its original 1967 version, this popular musical takes us all back to a simpler time-when all that was needed for “Happiness” was a security blanket, a full supper dish, and 5-cents’ worth of psychiatric help. Relive your beloved childhood memories with Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Snoopy, and the gang. Or bring your children or grandchildren to see characters they may only know through two annual holiday TV specials. Is “Peanuts” just for children? Good Grief, no.
Manning Dandridge will return to the NFCT to direct this feel good show.  
Based on the Comic Strip “PEANUTS” by Charles M. Schulz.

The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.
Kelsey Cheslock will make her NFCT directorial debut with Oliver! next spring.

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant. 
Co-directors, Eric Hughes and Liz Liszanckie will lead the 2018 Youth on Stage production of Seussical.
