Clarkston Village Players’ “Frankenstein” by Tim Kelly opens this weekend, just in time for Halloween.
Presented by special arrangement from Samuel French, Director Joseph Mishler, Assistant Director Jim Pike, Producer Karen McClellan, and players present the tale of Victor Frankenstein, brilliant young scientist as he returns to his Swiss chateau to escape his darkest secret, the creature he made from pieces of the dead. The creature demands a bride to share his loneliness, one as wretched as himself. Against his better judgment, Victor agrees and soon the household is invaded by murder, despair and terror.
