Old World Wisconsin's Halloween Dinner Theater


A spooky graphic of a man-made monster in the making

Old World Wisconsin will get into the Halloween spirit with 14 dinner theater performances of "Frankenstein" in an adaptation of Mary Shelley's terrifying novel by playwright R.N. Sandberg. The outdoor museum will present the shows as part of a series of evening dinner theater entertainment that includes a themed buffet dinner. The show dates are October 12–28. There will be two performances each Saturday and one performance each on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. The evenings begin with dinner in the rustic Clausing Barn. Characters from the play will then lead guests on foot to the performance space in Old World Wisconsin's historic Caldwell Farmers' Club Hall. Guests are encouraged to dress for the weather.

This is Not Your Boris Karloff Frankenstein

Victor Frankenstein has done the impossible — given life to inanimate matter. But his triumph turns to terror as his grotesque and despairing creation follows him home, threatening and demanding that Victor do the one thing he has sworn never to do — create another creature like himself, a companion, a wife. But this Frankenstein is a much more complex and tormented creature than found in the classic Boris Karloff movies and is the centerpiece of an engaging play that will have you on the edge of your seat.
