BCC Lamplight Players Present Frankenstein

Join the Burlington County College (BCC) Lamplight Players for a classic tale brought to life when they perform Tim Kelly’s “Frankenstein,” based on the novel by Mary Shelley. Produced through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., the BCC Lamplight Players will take the stage at the Geraldine Clinton Little Theater, located on BCC’s Pemberton campus, 601 Pemberton Browns Mills Rd., on Thursday, Nov. 7, Friday, Nov. 8 and Saturday, Nov. 9.

The play depicts the story of Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant scientist who secretly creates a “Creature” using pieces of the dead. His creation comes back to haunt him on the shores of Lake Geneva and terror ensues.

Taking the lead role as Victor Frankenstein and making his BCC Lamplight Players debut is Julian Azan, of Chesterfield. His monster, “The Creature,” will be played by Tyler Boring, of Shamong, who performed in BCC’s production of “Bat Boy” in the spring and “Barefoot in the Park” last fall.

Victor’s bride-to-be, Elizabeth, will be played by Katie Selnek, of Cinnaminson. This is her second performance with the BCC Lamplight Players. She played two roles in the spring musical, “Bat Boy.”

Robert Servis, of Browns Mills, will play Henry, Victor’s best friend as well as a scientist. This is the Pembertown Township High School grad’s first play with BCC.

Sophie, the housekeeper at Victor’s chateau in Lake Geneva, will be played by Julie Pulice, of Beverly. This is Pulice’s first play with BCC.

For his debut performance, Matthew Nehring, of Maple Shade, will play Ernst, a police commandant.

For her second BCC performance, Jazzmin Lewis, of Willingboro, will take the role as Frau Frankenstien, Victor’s mother.

Mia Jackson, of Willingboro, will perform her first play with BCC as Justine, the gypsy accused of murdering William, Victor’s younger brother.

This year’s production is also made possible by the stage manager, Bailey Moore, of Browns Mills, and the assistant stage manager, Sean Crowley, of Marlton.

Shows run Thursday, Nov. 7 through Saturday, Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m. with a Saturday matinee performance at 2 p.m. A special backstage tour and Q&A with the cast is available after the matinee with a separate $5 ticket.
