Frankenstein – The Panto

Frankenstein – The Panto by David Swan

Wednesday 17th to Saturday 20th January 2001

The Civic Hall, Trowbridge

Frankenstein tells the story of Frank N. Stein who works in a tavern in Bavaria. When Dracula kidnaps his best friend Heidi he must help save the day with the help of Prince Ludwig, Buckles, Professor Crackpot and Kodak the dog. The Forces of Evil never stand a chance . . . especially when Professor Crackpot transforms Frankie into a Superhero!

The only real horrors are a party of rowdy schoolgirls under the supervision of Miss Nelly, famed pedagogue and pantomime dame. They’re studying how to create havoc . . . and they’re all fast learners!
