"Whimsical," "hilarious, "amazing" —Austin Theatre Examiner

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 its many 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.

Come to Frankenstein and stay for our costume bash on October 31!
