With Halloween approaching, plan to attend the Cowley College Theatre Department’s electrifying production of the Mel Brooks Musical Young Frankenstein inside the Robert Brown Theatre on October 13-15. 

The cast and crew have brewed their own special scientific formula for the screen sensation. The production is rated PG-13 for adult humor and situations. 

A synopsis of the show: The grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein, inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. 

With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick and a leggy lab assistant, Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist's 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. 

Young Frankenstein will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on October 13-14 and at 2 p.m. on October 15. 

Tickets can be purchased at or by calling 620-441-5223
