The Geneva Theatre Guild presents their summer musical at The Smith Opera House August 3rd through 6th. It’s a stage adaptation of a much loved film. Mel Brooks adapted his 1974 comedy Young Frankenstein in 2007 and Steve DuPrey has wanted to direct it ever since.

 

Today, Wednesday, July 19th at 5:30 p.m., the Nancy Curvin Playground Players perform in Lakefront Park in Geneva. The ensemble is a joint venture of the Geneva Theatre Guild and Geneva Recreation Department. Since 1998, the group has brought together high school actors in the summer to perform for children and senior citizens. This year, Luis Figueroa, a student at Hobart and William Smith Colleges is directing the group, which has chosen a new take on a familiar story.
