“Frankenstein Incarnate was written especially for our company,” says Unbound Artistic Director Stacey Poirier. “We started out wanting to adapt Frankenstein for an all-female cast, but the more we learned about the life of its author, Mary Shelley, the more we saw how her experience overlapped and intertwined with the story that made her famous. The play brings a new spark of electricity to the story by reanimating the real life horror that inspired it.”

*Maren Ward Lindsay McCaw*, Co-Directors

THE BAREBONES HALLOWEEN SHOW:http://www.bedlamtheatre.org/display.php?event=117
*As Muck Would Have It* - Oct 27, 2007 - Oct 31, 2007

Barebones Productions presents the 14th Annual Outdoor Puppet Mississippi Samhain Extravaganza

This year's show begins with the arrival of spirits at a carnival on the Mississippi River bank. Audiences are guided down a ghostly trail to an old river town. The arrival of Huck and Jim (from Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn) causes a town controversy from which the two have to flee. From there we follow their adventures down the river encountering wildlife, spirits, tourists and river history.

Location: at the base of the North Entrance to Hidden Falls Park. The entrance is off of Mississippi River Boulevard, roughly 1/4 mile south of the Ford Parkway Bridge. On site parking is available.

*Jason Bohon*, Artistic Director of 3 Sticks Theatre Company, Actor *Katie Melby*, Actress

This regional premiere takes a hilarious look at the American traditions of happiness (and sadness) as five actors and one cellist tell the story of Tilly, a melancholy bank teller, who has a way of making everyone fall madly in love with her.
