"Transylvania Mania" hits Rupp Arena

Most folks I know are huge fans of Mel Brooks' "Young Frankenstein." How could you not be? It's amazing! The touring production of the Broadway musical is at the Lexington Opera House this weekend. One of the songs from the production is called "Transylvania Mania." Conveniently enough, Transylvania University, where I am a history major, played the University of Kentucky Wildcats in basketball on Wednesday evening. Shortly before tip-off, faculty, staff and students from Transy joined with dancers from the Town and Village School of Dance of Paris, Ky. to perform "Transylvania Mania" flash mob style. Video after the break!

The dance number, which featured vampires, Frankenstein monsters, and mummies, allowed the school to poke fun at its name and identity as "the vampire college." Members of the Transylvania community who participated in the flash mob were given free tickets to a production of "Young Frankenstein."

Have you ever been in a flash mob or seen one up close? Share your story in the comments!
