Victor Frankenstein (Scott Mock) had a happy personal life. Engaged to be married to the beautiful Elizabeth (Justine D'Addio) and surrouned by family and friends, he seems to have a great life. But he is obsessed with his work - he believes he can reanimate a human being after his death.
Recruiting his friend Henry (Jonathan Clow) to assist him, Victor succeeds in his quest. The Creature is played by the larger than life Summer Hill Seven. I am not going to give you much more information on him because I want you to see the play...
Tainted by Hollywood and having never read the book, I was surprised to see that The Creature ends up being able to speak and read. I could only recollect grunts and groans and the occasional "Puttin' on the Ritz" moan. Turns out, in the original novel, The Creature does learn to speak and read and can interact with the people. But his girth and deformity scare people away and thus begins his hatred for mankind.
You have two more weekends to see the performance and to meet the Monster. The shows are Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm with 2pm matinees on Sundays.
Tallahassee Little Theatre never ceases to amaze me with their wonderful performances, sets, costumes, lighting and material.
Every play I see seems to have a different cast, which reminds me that Tallahassee has a pool of talented people to choose from.
In my group, we had ages 13 through 73, and they all completely enjoyed the play - the teenagers even went so far to save their ticket stub and program to file it away as a memory.
Make a memory today with your family and friends, make plans to see Frankenstein or any of the upcoming Little Theatre productions.
