Allied Arts of Oklahoma State University will be hosting a performance of “Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein” by Aquila Theatre on Tuesday at 8 p.m. in the Seretean Center for the Performing Arts .
As a part of Allied Art’s 90th season, “Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein” comes straight from the 200-year-old novel by Mary Shelley.
The story follows Victor Frankenstein, a Swiss scientist on the brink of creating artificial life. He manages to achieve his goal, creating the infamous Frankenstein’s monster that has been a Halloween staple ever since.
“Frankenstein” is heralded as the first true science fiction novel. It confronts the ethical and moral dilemma of modern science, especially the creation of artificial life. As technology continues to vastly improve, this is something that is still being debated today.
Aquila Theatre’s production promises to be a bold and thrilling rendition of this classic story. By turning what was once only words on a page to be turned into passionate live performances by the talented actors and actresses at Aquila Theatre, the Seretean Center is surely the place to be Tuesday night.
Tickets will be available at $10 for OSU students and $20 for general public and can be found at tickets.okstate.edu.
