by Trouble Puppet Theatre Company

Oct. 29 - Nov. 22, 2015

Frankenstein: The Trouble Puppet Show is a spectacular work of puppet theater, adapted from Mary Shelley's classic novel by Trouble Puppet Artistic Director Connor Hopkins. Departing widely from both the original novel and subsequent adaptations, this production spins a tale of steampunk science that escapes from an abandoned Romanian asylum and makes its way over land and through the sewers to Paris during the Reign of Terror.

This is a signature Trouble Puppet show (first performance since 2010!) created by the company that brought Austin award-winning productions of The Jungle, Riddley Walker, Toil and Trouble, The Cruel Circus, The Head, The Crapstall Street Boys, Hyde & Jekyll, and Wars of Heaven. 

Tickets are at . Come early in the run for the best prices!

ASL interpretation by Emily Niswonger: Nov. 13.

Group sales welcome. Director/cast talkbacks available by request for groups.
