Stack up all the mad scientists who have ever conducted abominable experiments in a secret laboratory -- from Victor Frankenstein up through Dr. Evil -- and all of them together are not half as brilliant, deranged and flat-out horrifying as Dr. Moreau. More terrifying than any of H.G. Wells' other creations (and that's counting the aliens of The War of the Worlds and the Invisible Man), Dr. Moreau and his private zoo/nursery of half-man, half-animal "children" have thrilled and repulsed audiences since first appearing in print in 1896. Now Synetic artistic director Paata Tsikurishvili will direct and appear in a fresh adaptation of Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau. Set to original music and charged with riveting dialogue, this highly physical tale creates a horrifying world you will long remember. Learn More

Learn the laws necessary for surviving the jungles of adolescence in this primal reimagining of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book.

Synetic’s Director of Education and Family Programs, Meg Maxwell, says, “The Jungle Book is a story we’ve been eager to do for a long time. Creating humans with these dark, animalistic qualities feels distinctly ‘Synetic.’ We’re proud of our teenagers for the incredible character work they’ve done to bring this jungle to life.”
