Author Mary Shelley’s classic tale of scientific meddling, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil kicks off San Juan Community Theatre’s “On Book” series, and just in time for Halloween.

Directed by Eric Concord, Nick Dear’s haunting version of Shelley’s “Frankenstein”, comes to life with local voices reading and interpreting the riveting story of one experiment gone very very wrong.

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. on the Whittier Stage. Door open at 7 p.m. The show also plays on Oct. 26 or 27.
