Meet the Characters:
Doctor Frankenstein...The brilliant genius who creates life but doesn't stop to consider the soul. His talents in science have given him God-like power, but he has failed to consider the consequences.
The Monster...Seven feet tall and strong as a horse. He is reborn and thrust violently into this world that he doesn't understand. As many have asked God, the Monster asks his creator, in his own stumbling way, "Why am I alive? Where do I belong?" His frightening appearance turns the world against him, but only he knows what thoughts and feelings exist in his sensitive yet childlike mind.
Mary...A sweet, naive girl who tries to see the goodness and love inside everyone. She's the only one who tries to find the humanity and goodness in the Monster, and yet she is the unwitting Judas who brings the Monster in to face his tormenters.
Sponsor: Old Mill Winery
Wonderful food, wine, live music!
Tom Todd entertains here regularly!
Braston...The real monster. He is the picture of evil. His hunger for power knows no bounds, and he'll stop at nothing to get what he wants. With the finesse of a small town Hitler, he sees the Monster as a scapegoat, a way to frighten the villagers into accepting him as their ultimate leader.
Sponsor: Ferrante Winery Beautiful setting, full menu, fine wines, live music inside or on their beautiful patio in the summer. http://www.ferrantewinery.com/
Pimperton...The mild mannered mayor of the village. He is the voice of reason and fairness, and yet it is just these qualities that allow Braston to manipulate the situation. Evil triumphs!
Also don't miss the Girl Trio and the Tuff Guys! Action, suspense, a frightening monster and powerful music that will keep you on the edge of your seat!
The Show: All sung
in a pop/rock style, with lots of action, suspense, and exciting plot twists.
A story of good vs evil, of innocence vs greed,
of love vs love for power.
Terrifying yet touching.
If you DARE to confront the evil in every heart, watch
