Halloween Dinner Theater: 'Frankenstein'

The Friday, October 26, show and both Saturday, October 27, shows are sold out.
Begin the evening with a themed meal in the historic and fully decked out Clausing Barn, followed by followed by a walk to the historic Caldwell Farmers' Club Hall for an engaging play that will have you on the edge of your seat. "Frankenstein," by R.N. Sandberg, brings Mary Shelley's terrifying novel to the stage in an adaptation that reveals a much more complex and tormented creature than found in the classic Karloff movies. 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. Reservations required; Halloween Dinner Theater performances sell out. Guests are encouraged to dress for the weather.
