The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet
Written by Peter Bloedel and directed by Nicholas J. Goodman, this is a whimsical reinvention of Shakespeare’s tragic love story, complete with rhymed couplets, creative wordplay, and fantastical machines — similar to something Dr. Seuss might have come up with if he ever had his way with the script…
Showing July 28 (7:30 PM), 29 (7:30 PM), and 30 (2 PM), 2017 at the Geneva High School
The Summer Musical is “Young Frankenstein”

From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation, The Producers, comes this monster new musical comedy. The comedy genius, Mel Brooks, adapts his legendarily funny film into a brilliant stage creation – Young Frankenstein!
Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist 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.
Every bit as relevant to audience members who will remember the original as it will be to newcomers, Young Frankenstein has all the of panache of the screen sensation with a little extra theatrical flair added. With such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven, monstrously good entertainment.
Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And then some!)
Thank you everyone for making Every Christmas Story Ever Told so enjoyable! Thanks to theatre fans who attended our Community Giving Matinee, we were able to donate $100 to the Geneva Community Center
Thanks to you all for an amazing Playwrights/Playreadings! Unfortunately, none of our playwrights (Robin Pond, Len Cuthbert, and Kat Meads) could join us this year, but “Roses for the Sweetheart,” “Posthumous Friends,” “Matched,” and “Missing” all proved to be food for thought, and even a little laughter.
Miracle on South Division Street
Unfortunately, we were unable to share “Miracle on South Division Street” with you this year. We were sad but pushed ahead to have a great, spectacular Young Frankenstein.
