See & Do

"Frankenstein" at the Bridgetown Repertory Theatre

Tickets Bridgetown

The Repertory Club's next production is Frankenstein, perhaps the truest adaptation of Mary Shelley's classic, dramatising the events of her second Frankenstein novel. Come and be riveted by the drama and suspense.

Description

Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant scientist, returns to his chateau on the shores of Lake Geneva to escape a terrible pursuer. No one can shake the dark secret that terrifies him; not his mother, nor his fiancee Elizabeth, nor his best friend, Henry Clerval. Even the pleading of a gypsy girl accused of murdering Victor's younger brother falls on deaf ears, for Victor has brought into being a "Creature" made from bits and pieces of the dead!

The Creature tracks Victor to his sanctuary to demand a bride to share its loneliness, one as wretched as the Creature himself. Against his better judgement, Victor agrees and soon the household is invaded by murder, terror and despair!

The play builds to a dramatic climax whilst including some macabre humour to relieve the mounting tension.

Some new actors will make their debut in this fine stage play, along with seasoned Repertory actors, all of them breathing new life into this monster of a tale!

Shows on June 8-10, and June 15-17.

Tickets: Adult $20, Concession $15, Repertory Members $12. All tickets for the two matinees are $15 (Rep Members $12). Please note that if you are a Rep Member and wish to book tickets at the Visitor Centre, you must bring your membership card with you, and the discounted price only applies to the cardholder.
