Congratulations to the talented Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School cast and crew on their sensational performance of “Young Frankenstein,” performed on March 3-5.

Based on the 1974 comedy film “Young Frankenstein,” the musical was created by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, with music and lyrics by Brooks. As a parody of the horror film genre, the play follows the story of Frederick Frankenstein, pronounced “Fronkensteen,” after he inherits a castle in Transylvania containing characters Igor, Inga and Frau Blucher. Upon discovering the secret entrance to his grandfather's laboratory, Frederick decides to carry on the family experiments and creates a monster of his own.

“Every year we are just blown away with the talent we have here in Copiague and this year was no exception,” said musical director Gina Occhigrosso. “We are so proud of the way our students dedicated their energy and passion to making this year's performance come together and kept us laughing all the way.”
