HACC Theatre features ‘Frankenstein, The Radio Play’ during a Season of Moral Ambiguity

HARRISBURG, Pa. – The radio play by Philip Grecian, “Frankenstein,” – directed by HACC Theatre Instructor, Dave Olmsted – will be presented during HACC Theatre’s Season of Moral Ambiguity from Thursday, Nov. 14 through Sunday, Nov.17, 2013, at the Rose Lehrman Arts Center’s Studio Theatre on the Harrisburg Campus of HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College (One HACC Drive).

Remember the good old days of radio – when people had to use their imaginations – when the mind was a stage?  Those days are back – only better!  Victor Frankenstein and his friend, Henry Clerval, set out to create life using corpses stolen from graveyards. During a raging storm, Victor is successful but his scientific experiment has created a misshapen, inarticulate horror. Infuriated, the creature sets out on a murdering rampage, prompting Victor and Clerval to pursue it to the North Pole, to set right the tragic wrong they have created. 

With the aid of the Foley artists and talented voice actors, you can see – as well as hear –Mary Shelley’s classic tale brought to life in this classic radio play!

The cast of HACC’s “Frankenstein” includes Gabriel Williams as the Creature, Ryan Goodling as Victor Frankenstein, Rashaun Bailey as Henry Clerval, Angelica Williams as Baroness Frankenstein, Joshua Dieter playing Walton and DeLacey, Thomas Pennell as Professor Waldman, Guilia Einhorn as Justine Moritz, Bradley Erb as the Foley Artist, Caitlyn Davis playing Elizabeth Frankenstein, Benjamin Dean as the Announcer, Aries Rodriguez playing Catherine and Birgitta and Marcus Sprecher as the Pianist.
