Adapted from the Mary Shelley classic
Presented by the St. Charles Players
Mary Shelley's chilling classic. Lightning strikes the pole sending electric waves racing across dark castle walls into the laboratory and the lifeless body stitched together by a scientist called "mad" because he wants to create life in a lifeless creature. Unaware that his creation has been wrongly given a criminal brain, he dreams of a son, a friend, a companion, an incredible recreation of life, anything but... a monster. Lightning flashes. It's alive!
Faithful in adaptation to the source literature, monterey soundWorks was founded on the principal that a full scale audio dramatization using multiple actors, original music scores and digital sound effects created a full entertainment experience for the listener in a manner that can never be achieved by a single voice narration in a typical books-on-tape production.
