‘Frankenstein’ Aims To Thrill Audiences At Delta College

Delta Drama is back starting Friday, Oct. 7 with the electrifying tale of a creature cast away by his creator into a hostile world, only to wind his way back in a dangerous game of destruction and vengeance.

Performances are scheduled at the Alfred Muller Studio Theatre at San Joaquin Delta College, 5151 Pacific Ave., Stockton over two weekends. Fridays, Oct. 7 and 14 and Saturdays, Oct. 8 and 15, the curtain rises at 7 p.m., while Sunday 2 p.m. matinees will be offered on Oct. 9 and Oct. 16.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature searches for a place to belong and to make sense of its own existence.

The gothic tale which has captivated audiences for over 200 years comes to life in this atmospheric and emotionally haunting adaptation of the chilling fable by Mary Shelley. Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, social rejection, intellectual hubris, and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic story.

The production is free and open to the public. For tickets or more information, visit or call (209) 954-5110. Note: This show is recommended for ages 12 and up.

Delta’s Drama Program believes in the importance of providing to the college community a drama curriculum that develops knowledge, skills and competencies necessary for transfer to the upper division level as well as fulfilling AA Degree general education requirements.

The Drama Program provides a rigorous, disciplined, and integrated curriculum designed to meet the vocational demands of the theatre profession. Delta also offers scholarships to new students who qualify.

The Actor Training program is a two-year course of study in which students who have successfully auditioned can concentrate their efforts in rigorous acting classes three times a week in the first year and five times a week in the second year, while also studying stagecraft in separate technical classes.
