About the event
Frankenstein: A Living Comic Book Pre-Show
This electrifying new stage production uses immersive comic book design and playful theatrical techniques to reanimate the sci-fi classic for a new generation! Adapted from the novel by Craig Francis, Rick Miller and Paul Van Dyck, and directed by Francis and Miller, this version confronts modern issues of climate change, artificial intelligence and our relationship to technology… monsters of our own making! When a young graphic novelist geek named Mary discovers the journal of Dr. Victor Frankenstein, she’s drawn into his uncanny story of secret experiments to conquer death. She discovers that we all need to face our own fears… before they face us!

“Chris has been teaching our eight-year-old son drawing for several months now, and he absolutely loves it. Chris is fun, patient, and really gets into whatever Charlie wants to draw. We have done lots of after- school programs, but this is the one Charlie is always the most excited about.”
