FRANKENSTEIN

October 25 - November 9 
DCP Theatre

Victor Frankenstein, an advanced scientist, develops a gross obsession with the idea of recreating human life. He convinces his companion to assist him in his project, and they both begin their work. The experiment is successful and the power which Frankenstein yields is great. However, it doesn’t take long before he realizes the consequences of his sick actions and the horror which lies ahead. His creature, which first brought a brilliant new perception of life, is only capable of devastating other lives around him. *Production may contain disturbing scenes not suitable for young audience members.
