Little Frankenstein
03/02/2017 - 03/02/2017
Lempen Puppet Theatre Company will be performing their show, "LITTLE FRANKENSTEIN" on Friday 3rd February at 7pm

The story:

Puppeteer Frank Norman Stein is busy rehearsing his new show "George the Dragon Slayer" but he's finding it really difficult with his badly made puppets that keep falling apart! Taking inspiration from the scientist Dr Frankenstein, and with the help of the audience he creates a new real live puppet that is destined to change his life forever! Creature George emerges from the workshop, innocent and willing to learn, but Frank is so intent on his rehearsal that he neglects to look after his new child.

A little horror for little horrors! A treat not to be missed!

Little Frankenstein will tickle the imagination of everyone from 5 to 105 years old.

"Enjoyable bonkers performance!"

"Awesome!"

Adults - £10
