"Dr. Frankenstein" Presented by the LAVC Theater Department

The Los Angeles Valley College Theater Department presents the U.S. premiere of Dr. Frankenstein by Selma Dimitrijevic on Thursday, November 2 and Friday, November 3 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, November 5 and Saturday, November 11 at 2 p.m. in the Horseshoe Theater in the Theater Arts building. 

In this startlingly fresh, lyrical and haunting contemporary adaptation of Mary Shelley's classic, Dr. Frankenstein is reimagined as a woman. 

The cast includes LAVC students Nelly Chermakyan, Harut Simonian, Samantha Healy, Andrea de Anda, Lilya Tatarenko, Cameron Kotecki and Sean Gilliland. Scenery and lighting are designed by theater chair Jennifer Read, and costumes are by LAVC student Jacqueline Colindres. The production stage manager is LAVC student Victor Gonzalez and assistant stage managers are LAVC students Alexandra Han and Enver Messano.

Seating is limited in this limited run (only four performances). This play is produced in repertory with Dracula, a modern retelling of Bram Stoker's undying horror classic by Liz Lochhead.
