Current Season


Victor Frankenstein is a man with an obsession. He ruthlessly pursues the secrets of creating life and in doing so creates a monster. Consumed with hatred for his creation, he triggers events that ultimately lead to the destruction of himself and all he holds dear. Witness the tragic tale of a man playing God, only to be damned by God. This riveting production by the Villa Players will closely follow Mary Shelley's classic. Following performances, stay for talk backs with the cast and Director. Free with paid admission.
