FILM SYNOPSIS: In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a passionate father is so devoted to teaching his six children how to live, be free, and survive in the world that he has moved them deep into the forests of the Pacific Northwest. He spends his days teaching them combat skills, training them like professional athletes, homeschooling them in a rigorous classical education, and introducing them to the beauty of the natural world. However, when he is forced to leave their self-created paradise and confront the real world, he begins a journey that challenges his unorthodox parenting.


Auditions for High Point Community Theatre's 'Young Frankenstein'

IT’S ALIVE! A wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend based on Mel Brooks’ classic 1974 comedy film masterpiece, the story follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that’s Fronkensteen) as he attempts to complete his grandfather’s masterwork and bring a corpse to life. But this musical comedy hit, winner of the 2008 Outer Critics Circle Award, is not without scary and hilarious complications. The show includes such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend”, "Roll in the Hay", and the famous “Puttin’ On The Ritz.”

We will be doing this production in "black and white" with the intent of making the musical resemble the movie. (Homage is the greatest form of flattery Mr. Brooks) There will be projected backdrops, "moving" film footage, a very "electric" laboratory, and a Hollywood Horror show make- up artist for the monster and to teach the cast the fine art of being a "black and white" movie star. Come be a part of something very different and fun!
