New World Performance Laboratory presents 'Frankenstein' at CCU

  "Frankenstein"  
The New World Performance Laboratory (NWPL), a professional theatre company based in Ohio, will present its production of "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 5 and Friday, Nov. 6 at Coastal Carolina University's Black Box Theatre, located in the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts.

General admission is $15, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute Member admission is $10, alumni and seniors are $10, teen and children are $5 (children must be accompanied by an adult).

NWPL's imaginative investigation of the classic story, "Frankenstein," incorporates images from the novel and scenes from Shelley's own life. This production depicts the epic battle between body, mind and soul fought on a landscape of solitude and horror. Lord Byron, Mary Shelley, her husband Percy Shelley and their friends come to life in this gothic nightmare. The show includes a haunting vocal score that blends 19th century romantic motifs with new music composed by Megan Elk. NWPL's "Frankenstein," which premiered as part of the Cleveland Playhouse's Fusion Fest, has won acclaim for its original, unconventional approach.

"Frankenstein" is the work of an internationally acclaimed theatre ensemble. The play is directed by NWPL co-artistic director and University of Akron theatre professor, James Slowiak.

NWPL works in residence at the University of Akron and under the auspices of the Center for Applied Theatre and Active Culture (CATAC).
