It's alive...and it's on stage this weekend!  Looking for a good scare to get you in the mood for Halloween? Frankenstein this Friday, Oct. 12 at the Stockton PAC should do the trick. Aquila Theatre’s production of this timeless classic is well regarded, described as bold and thrilling – while paying homage to the original, frightening writing of Mary Shelley. Frankenstein, the first true science fiction novel, is a living, breathing, gruesome outcome of scientific discovery. How wonderfully creepy !
