An outstanding venue and terrific performances. My wife, 14 year old daughter and I all enjoyed the evening. Go early and hear the director give some background and insight about the story and Mary Shelly, the author.

Quotes & Highlights

“The STC production [of Frankenstein_] includes a top-notch cast … You will be discussing the various elements of this show as you leave the theater, and perhaps for days to come.” —_Davis Enterprise
“There are lots of levels to enjoy Sacramento Theatre Company’s current production of Frankenstein_. You can ponder what the monster has to say about his fate. You can laugh at the ironic humor of the situation. Or you can just sit there and wait for the scares.”—_Sacramento Press

Description

Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant young scientist, returns to his Swiss chateau to escape a terrible pursuer. No one can shake free the dark secret that terrifies him: not his mother, nor his fiancee, nor his best friend. 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 pieces of the dead. The creature tracks Victor to his sanctuary to demand a bride to share its loneliness. Against his better judgement, Victor agrees and soon the household is invaded by murder, despair and terror!

Dramatized by Tim Kelly from the classic Mary Shelley novel comes this story of a scientist who oversteps the boundaries of conscience. The thriller has been riveting audiences for over 150 years and is currently on the reading lists of many schools in the Sacramento area.

The “prologue” begins 45 minutes before each performance and lasts for about 15 minutes. It’s an opportunity to learn a little about the play, playwright, and production before experiencing the performance itself.
