WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Get ready for some monstrous laughs when the Thalian Association presents Young Frankenstein.

The Mel Brooks show is adapted from his legendarily funny film.

It tells the story of the grandson of infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced "Fronk-en-steen"), who inherits his family's estate in Transylvania.

With the help of his sidekick, Igor, and assistant, Inga, Frederick follows in the mad scientist footsteps of his ancestors.

The actors who play Inga (Courtney Poland) and Igor (Michael Savas) will join us on WECT News First at Four on Monday, Sept. 25.

The show opens Friday, Sept. 29 at the Thalian Hall main stage. For tickets, click here.
