Rose of Athens Theatre is Essential to our Community
Rose of Athens Theatre is hitting the road with a touring show this season! The company is presenting a beautiful rendition of authoress Mary Shelley’s life and her timeless novel Frankenstein; or the Modern Prometheus. Frankenstein Lives by Douglas Jones captures audience’s imaginations. “At the tender age of eighteen, Mary Shelley wrote a story so compelling that it has never been out of print. Surrounded by exciting breakthroughs in electricity, chemistry, magnetism and other scientific fields, she imagined a Creature pieced together from dead bodies–then brought to life, only to be shunned by its creator. Frankenstein Lives chronicles Mary’s life leading up to the book that made her famous; the literary world that surrounded her; the contest proposed by Lord Byron that inspired her to write Frankenstein; and the startling resonances between her own life and her literary creation. In this story within a story, one actor portrays the obsessed poet Percy Shelley and the equally obsessed Victor Frankenstein; one actress portrays the young tormented Mary Shelley, and the equally tormented Creature. The result is a new take on a story you only thought you knew.” (Courtesy of www.douglasjoneswriter.com) The cast includes Danielle Bailey Miller as Mary Shelley/The Creature and Jeremy Miller as Percy Shelley/Victor Frankenstein, Directed by Lisa Cesnik Ferguson, Lighting and Set Design by Gina Hawkins, Costume Design by Tonya Gergely.
