Frankenstein' updated for Yukon stage 

Yukon's The Stage Door has created a monster "? specifically, "Frankenstein 1930," a play adapted from Mary Shelley's classic novel of a madman, his monster and the mayhem that ensues when the former creates the latter.

Written by Fred Carmichael, the play amplifies the horror and suspense of the "Frankenstein" book while adding in an all-new love story. As the title suggests, it's set in the early part of the 20th century, rather than the late part of the 18th century. Rest assured, the hideous creature remains.

SPECIAL EFFECTS
Frieda Penn of The Stage Door said the technical aspects of the show are like a character unto themselves, with a highly technical set and special effects with lighting and sound. Even the lobby has been transformed into a spooky old forest.

"There is so much more to a show than putting the cast in some costumes, slapping some makeup on their faces and delivering some dialogue in front of some fake walls," she said, in a press release.

COSTUME CONTEST
Speaking of costumes, the special 8 p.m. Halloween-night performance encourages audience members to come dressed up in theirs. A costume contest will be held during intermission.

The remainder of performances are scheduled for 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $6. For more information, call 265-1590 or visit their site.
