MIRACLE Theatre Company presents Frankenstein at Combeinteignhead Village Hall on Sunday.

Renowned for their surreal and comic re-workings of well known and loved stories, Miracle's inventive approach to Frankenstein promises to tickle funny bones and have audiences jumping out of their seats.

Originally a Victorian novel, famously a black and white movie starring Boris Karloff, and the inspiration for the Rocky Horror Picture Show, Miracle presents its Frankenstein as a musical performed by the Ffitch Repertory Players in 1947.

"The original novel is so rich in themes and ideas that it lends itself to pretty much any kind of interpretation," said Bill Scott, director of the production.

"Our unique adaptation, while looking for laughs, does not shy away from the deeper aspects of the classic tale and will have a bit more bite than your average panto, designed for the enjoyment of adults as much as children — though often in different ways."

When the power is cut off, Frank must race against time to construct a superhuman of epic proportions which can carry the precious genes of the rich and famous into the future.

His cut and paste creation is a hideous mistake. Feared by its creator, shunned by the world, the monster takes revenge.

Curtain up at 6pm.
