     “Frankenstein: Man, Monster, Myth (and Mary) 
     Compiled, Adapted, and Directed by Dan Heaton

    Thursday, September 26, 8 PM

    Saturday, September 28, 8 PM
    Sunday, September 29, 2 PM matinee

    A little over 200 years ago, a young Mary Godwin, bored during a rainy summer in Geneva, created what has become perhaps the most iconic horror creation in literature—Frankenstein’s monster. Since then, the creature has expanded into many aspects of popular culture—film, cartoons, graphic novels, games, costumes, parodies. Like the monster, our show is an amalgamation of parts—fictional and non-fictional—that explore the impact Frankenstein continues to have on the world.

    Once upon a time, there was a little juke-box musical...oh, who are we kidding? Before the movie (and the sequel), there was the stage show. And here it is. Sophie is getting married on the lovely Greek island where she lives with her mother, Donna. The identity of Sophie's father is unknown, so she invites the three most likely candidates to the wedding. Add in Donna's best friends/former back-up singers and blend with a generous helping of ABBA songs. Just try not to sing along. We dare you. And it's Valentine's weekend. C'mon.

    Our final show of this season combines aspects of each of the three prior shows. Yes, this our second production of Spring semester to feature an island setting. There is a monster, treachery, and young love. And there is even an element of mystery. Or, as Shakespeare wrote, "Such stuff as dreams are made on." Come dream with us.
