Spooktacular Mystery at Dr. Frankenstein's Laboratory, The

INTERACTIVE FARCE/MYSTERY. There are plenty of laughs and claps of thunder in this screamingly funny madcap mystery. With the “monster incident” behind him, Dr. Frankenstein has given up creating monsters with dead body parts and has his sights set on his newest creation―a giant plant that he hopes will win first place at the Transylvania County Fair Green Thumb Gardening Contest. But before Dr. Frankenstein can unveil his prized plant, it spooktacularly disappears from his laboratory. Suspects include the Invisible Man, a werewolf pizza delivery girl, a witch disguised as a detective, and even Dr. Frankenstein’s assistant Igor. In a series of flashback reenactments acted out by the suspects, the audience can get in on the fun by trying to guess the identity of the thief. Suitable for audiences of all ages and perfect for Halloween!
