CREATURE is a 50-minute adaptation of «Frankenstein» that uses live music, puppetry & projection to tell a story filled with human connection, wretchedness & wonder. This imaginative retelling of Creature's origin story features a 7-foot-tall Creature, live rock & roll accompaniment, tabletop puppetry, shadow play & projected imagery.

Our adaptation seeks to restore the intelligence, grace & violence with which the novel's author Mary Shelley originally imbued it. Follow Creature from its birth to its travels through the wilderness where it faces choices that will define it as human or monster.

Supported in part by The Jim Henson Foundation and the Kentucky Arts Council.

AUDIENCE ADVISORY: Contains some violence, both implied & explicit, plus amplified rock music.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: Adults & brave children ages 8 & up.

Q: But should I bring my kid?
A: Up to you. But we believe being alive can be challenging & that it sometimes involves anger, surprise, violence, wonder & regret. We also believe talking about challenging topics helps us all to be better humans, & trust children & their parents to begin these helpful conversations.
