FrankenShow

The Galleries and the Theater of CCBC are joining together to produce a digital presentation of the student-written play of Frankenstein. Reinterpreted to be set in present-day Baltimore, the play highlights aspects of Mary Shelley’s book, such as belonging and otherness, while also bringing forth new themes like gender identity and motherhood. There will be staged readings, filmed scenes, interviews, and images of the creative processes involved in creating this Frankenstein.

Alongside the theater’s work, the galleries are calling for artworks from students and alumni that are inspired by the play  for an online exhibition. Erik Miller will be the curator for the show. All styles and mediums are welcome to apply. Cash prizes will be awarded to the two winners (1 student, 1 alum) of each of the 5 categories: Act 1, Act 2, Act 3, Character, and People’s Choice Award.

Student Prizes:

Act I - $150
