‘Young Frankenstein’ has many exceptional local actors

The 13th Annual High School Summer Musical Theatre Experience of Young Frankenstein at the Wilson Center for the Arts was a pretty terrific show, and you have two more chances to see it.  Mel Brooks would be very proud of these young people.  Their acting is top notch, singing is pitch-perfect, musical accompaniment highlight the singing, and the show follows the original script with some minor adjustments.  This is the final weekend for this presentation and you would be amiss if you don’t catch it.

Most of these actors and actresses attend local schools in the Jacksonville area and you’ll probably see some of them in upcoming productions at the Alhambra Theatre & Dining, Broadway and other theatrical venues around the country.  The whole world can be their stage.

Some of the schools that are represented by these talented children are: Saint Johns Country Day, Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, Eagles View Academy, Oceanway School of Dance, Landrum Middle School, LaVilla School of the Arts, Bishop Kenny High, Ponte Vedra High, Sandalwood High, Duval Charter at Baymeadows, Stanton College Prep, Bolles, Providence School of JAX, Bartram Trail High, Duncan Fletcher High, St. Augustine High, Florida Virtual, Clay County High, Mandarin High and Florida State College.

Special recognition go out to Jeremy Ferri (Dr. Fredrick Frankenstein), Jasmine Hurt (Frau Bl
űcher), Igor (Brendan Murphy), Inga (Lana Davidenko), Elizabeth Benning (Isabella Williams), The Monster (Johnny Flannagan), Inspector Hans Kemp (Gannon Thomas), The Hermit (Jack Niemczyk), Dr. Victor Von Frankenstein (Aidan Jones) and Ziggy (Auggie Pulliam).  These talented individuals had many lines, and songs throughout the Two Act presentation.  Thanks and kudos go out to ALL those who made Young Frankenstein a huge success.
