Capital Classics brings radio-theater performances of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to The Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford this Halloween week.

Just like the days of the golden age of radio, Company members use live sound effects, music and their storytelling vocal skills to tell an adaption of Mary Shelley’s 200-year-old novel.

Few creatures of horror have seized readers’ imaginations and held them for so long as this anguished monster. Frankenstein is the story of Victor Frankenstein, a promising young doctor who, devastated by the death of his mother from scarlet fever, becomes obsessed with bringing the dead back to life.

Performances will also include radio-theater style readings of a story by Mark Twain to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

Friday, October 26 – 7:30 pm
Saturday, October 27 – 7:30 pm
Sunday, October 28 – 2:00 pm

Tickets are $20 for the general public, $15 for members of The Mark Twain House & Museum and Let’s GO Arts! cardholders.

Get tickets here.
