Happenings in October at the Vive Les Arts in Killeen

Killeen, Texas may have a small town feel but it does not mean that you will run out of things to do in this large city of more than 100,000 people. The city, after all, is home to the Vive Les Arts Theatre, which is a full time arts organization that produces a number of Main Stage and Children’s Theatre every year.

So, what’s happening over at the Vive Les Arts in Killeen this October?

Frankenstein Is Alive!

Yes, you got it right. The VLA will lend its stage to a beautifully directed show of Young Frankenstein. Mitch Baker, who is also joined by musical director Eric Reynolds, hails from San Marcos and while this is his very first VLA directing gig, it certainly does not mean that he does not have any impressive experiences up his sleeve – because he does!

The “Young Frankenstein” is based on the 1974 of the same name which was written by Brooks and Gene Wilder but is basically a parody of horror films with music and lyrics written by Brooks. The show’s script is pretty close to that of the movie’s but with a few minor changes here and there. Young Frankenstein is being sponsored by the All-American Chevrolet of Killeen.

You can catch the show at the VLA Theatre in Young Drive on Oct. 16, 17, 23, 24 at 7pm and on Oct. 18 and 25 at 2pm.

Call for Volunteers

Watching a show on stage is awesome but being part of it is even better. Volunteers are being called to help in the show as backstage crew (stage hands, technical crew, props and props and costume) and front of house (greeters, ushers, tickets and concessions). Volunteer trainings will happen on Oct. 9 at 4pm.

Military Appreciation Night happens on the Thursday before the opening night of each show and those who are in active duty, retired and even their dependents can watch Young Frankenstein absolutely free as long as a current military ID card is presented upon check-in. Join the free night out and enjoy catered appetizers and concessions at 6:15pm, before the show starts!
