Young Frankenstein
October 23 – November 8, 2015

Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks

It’s alive! The comedy genius Mel Brooks adapts his legendarily funny film into a brilliant stage creation – Young Frankenstein! Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. “It’s alive!” he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather’s. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds. With such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ On The Ritz,” Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven, monstrously good entertainment.

 Stone Mountain Park Antebellum Plantation (Stone Mountain, GA)

Join the Atlanta family tradition and meet professional storytellers spinning their tales of famous (and not-so-famous) Southern Ghosts along the lantern-lit paths of the Antebellum Plantation grounds at Stone Mountain Park.

“A Tour of Southern Ghosts” is held during the Halloween season so the stories are a little scary, many times humorous, but never too frightening and always appropriate for young children. Each night offers a different cast of six storytellers, which means audience members may return to “A Tour of Southern Ghosts” on additional nights to hear a new collection of stories. Call the number below for each night’s featured storytellers.

2015 Dates: October 9-11, 15-18, 22-25

October 30 – November 1, 2015Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Georgia

Meet – Have the opportunity to personally meet your favorite celebrities. With exclusive panels, celebrity photo ops, events and so much more, you’ll have the experience of a lifetime!

Experience – Immerse yourself in the world of walkers. With dozens of cosplayers & walkers roaming the event floor, you’ll be sure you create amazing memories to share with your friends.

Share – Keep up to date and interact with the latest news and events going on at the fan fest with social media!

Walker Stalker Con is the fruit of The Walker Stalkers Podcast with James & Eric. The podcast began with an amazing trip to Senoia, GA where James & Eric were able to view the set of The Walking Dead and meet the incredible actors from the show. As a result of this experience, a podcast began and then the idea of a convention focused around recreating that same experience with the cast and crew of the show, along with talented actors and artists from other zombie shows, movies and art.

Walker Stalker Con is not just a convention. It is a fan meet-up and an opportunity for each guest to come away feeling like they’ve had an amazing experience and became part of a greater community of zombie lovers! Walker Stalker Con is three days of events, panels, and experiences that zombie fans won’t find anywhere else!

A special thanks to all of those volunteers and fans that have spent countless hours in making Walker Stalker Con a reality. As well, a special thanks to the original KickStarter supports for Walker Stalker Con who invested and believed that Walker Stalker Con could be just the thing that zombie fans were looking to be part of!

Thank you for participating in Walker Stalker Con – a convention that is funded by the fans and is for the fans!

Sincerely,
James
