A straight play is a piece of theater that is not a musical but relies on the spoken word to tell the story. This kind of play moves the story along through spoken dialogue, as opposed to song and dance. These two art forms are both considered plays, but are usually presented in completely different styles.

Dr. Frankenstein’s grandson is on a quest for the perfect brain to bring his grandfather’s monster to life once again.  He advertises his castle as a vacation retreat so he can select from a smorgasbord of brains.  With the help of his not-so loyal assistant, Egor, the castle is transformed for the evil scheme.  Julius T.  Woodknocker, a frustrated vaudevillian with a nervous condition, is among the guests who are in for much more than a relaxing vacation.  Constantly trying out new routines that might save his waning career, he harasses the guests (and embarrasses his family) with his Groucho Marx buffoonery. 


Mystery and mayhem ensue when a famous vampire couple and the tortured grandson of the Wolfman respond to Frankenstein’s ad.  As the scheme develops and some of the guests prepare to thwart Dr. Frankenstein’s plan, mix-ups and misunderstandings rule the day.  Secret passageways, diabolical plots, and young love all play major roles in this spooky spoof that will have you howling with laughter!
