High River's Windmill Theatre is reaching back into the Mel Brooks catalogue for its next spooky creation.

Director Laura Ferguson says everyone's gearing up for what should be a great time for the cast and crew and audience alike.

"Miranda Scott and I, she is now helping me direct Young Frankenstein, which is based on the 1974 movie Young Frankenstein, it's a musical although, Mel Brooks wrote all the music for it and it's been on Broadway and it's been super successful and, oh my goodness it is absolutely hilarious and we are loving it," she says.

She says the cast and crew have been awesome with some newcomers to Windmill along with some of the veterans.

"It's the reason I've been with Windmill for 36 years, it's because of the people and watching these new folks come in and they just, I think they feel how welcome they are and the fact that everybody just wants everybody else to do well, and we all push each other to get better and better as the years go on I'm super excited about that."

It starts with Dinner Theatre Friday April 21 and Saturday April 22.

Tickets are now available.
