Perfomance Information:
Brilliant young student Viktor Frankenstein discovers how to endow dead organic matter with life itself. It is one thing to stitch together an anatomically complete organism, but quite another when it becomes a living, breathing creature that shows intelligence, feels torment – and demands answers of its creator. Viktor, disgusted by his creation and unable to face the consequences of bringing it into the world, escapes his claustrophobic university life to return home to Switzerland. But the Monster is not to be put off, and it relentlessly tracks him down. Jealous that Viktor is about to marry his childhood sweetheart and create life in a more conventional way, the Monster resolves to ransom him until a wife is created for him also....

This brand-new musical production features a fully orchestrated musical score, a cast of professional actor singers, spectacular stage effects, puppetry – and flashes of the wickedly dark humour for which Illyria is justly celebrated. The show contains mature themes but is suitable for all ages 5+.


You will receive an email from Eventbrite our online booking system provider. This email will contain your ticket/s. Please make sure you print these tickets along with the accompanying email. You will be required to present these to a member of the Coolings team before attending the event / excursion.

Seating will not be available, you can bring your own chairs, but they will be situated at the back as people who bring blankets will be at the front, so everyone gets a clear view.
