“Frankenstein,” written by Marjorie Bicknell, was inspired by novelist Mary Shelley’s classic thriller. David Tyson, assistant professor of communication studies and theatre arts at NOVA-Woodbridge, directs and designed the production. He said directing the production was a rewarding experience for him and for the cast of NOVA students and community members who contributed to the play. 

“This is an interesting story about trying to figure one’s place in the world, ethics, responsibility and understanding that all actions have consequences,” said Tyson. “Everyone can relate to this story and it’s a Halloween treat for all to enjoy.”

Tickets are $8 for general admission and $5 for NOVA students, faculty, staff, children under 12, seniors and military. Only cash will be accepted for entry.

Open parking for the event will be available in Lot B.  For addition information, contact David Tyson at dtyson@nvcc.edu or 703-878-6114.
