“Young Frankenstein”

Suffield’s 2021 musical Young Frankenstein finished a three-night run on Saturday, December 10. The performances had the audience laughing at every turn, and featured 28 students in the cast and 23 student crew members. 

Director of Theater Tom Dugan said, “Young Frankenstein was the perfect show to welcome our live audience back into the Jeanice Seaverns PAC. It was non-stop laughs from beginning to end. You could feel the energy in the theater. The entire company enjoyed the experience, and we look forward to more performances this year!”

Of his experience as The Monster, Trent Hieber ’22 said, “This was the first musical I have ever participated in and it certainly won’t be my last. I loved every second of the process and will miss performing on stage. I might even miss putting my green make-up on for an hour and a half each day…just a little.”

Eli Wiener ’22, who played Dr. Frederick Frankstein, said, “I think that Young Frankenstein was the best Suffield production I have been a part of. While it was the most physically taxing of the musicals I’ve been in, it was by far the most personally rewarding. I am unbelievably thankful for the opportunity to be a part of it.”

Tyler Cooper ’22 echoed his castmates’ positive experiences, saying, “It was like a big family where there was always something to laugh at and it was a happy environment in general.”
