The Great Bend Recreation Commission is sponsoring its 25th annual youth summer theatre production, “Kid Frankenstein”. Frankie needs a new brain for his new monster! Irving (AKA “Igor”) and Helga sneak into the science lab to grab a monkey brain but it gets mixed up with the brain of little “Fluffy”, a sweet puppy dog. Hilarity ensues as Frankie and his team present a surprising monster to the Science Fair! Join the cast as the friends are whisked into a sci-fi fantasy of time-warped, weirdly scary and lively adventure!
The performance of “Kid Frankenstein,” by Kathryn Schultz Miller, will be held on Friday, July 12, at 7 p.m. at the Great Bend High School Auditorium. The production is open to the public and admission is free. The doors to the Auditorium open at 6:30 p.m. for the public.
The cast of 22 children, ages 6 – 16, has been practicing for five weeks under the direction of Paul Martin and assistants Tammy Bell and Pat Doll. Many of the children have performed in previous productions for the Recreation Commission.
