The story begins when Captain Walton and his decimated skeleton crew, at a point of crisis on their own desolate and ill-fated Arctic expedition, rescue a nearly-frozen Victor Frankenstein from his self-imposed exile in the icy wilderness. The horrifying tale of ungodly science, untenable ambition, and all-consuming obsession that Victor recounts to them on that burg-locked barge has captivated the imaginations of readers since its publication in 1818.

Anton deGroot’s stage adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein breathes new life into this iconic story of gothic horror with elements of expressionism, meta-theatre, and an ensemble cast that transforms Central Memorial High School’s Blackbox Theatre into Frankenstein’s family home in Geneva, the streets of Ingolstadt, the glacial mountains of the Arctic, and of course, the grotesque laboratory of Victor Frankenstein themselves, where, both literally and symbolically, a monster is born.


This play contains mature themes as well as scenes depicting physical violence. Please consider the age and maturity of attendees when purchasing tickets.

Non-toxic stage haze, flashing lights, and loud noises are used during this performance.
