October 20—November 19
by Jerry R. Montoya
A stormy evening. June,1816.The Villa Diodati, Lake Geneva, Switzerland. Gathered are, Mary Godwin (soon to be Shelley), her sister, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Dr. John Polidori and Lord Byron. There’s a contest among friends to see who can tell the greatest ghost story. Experience the creation of literature’s most memorable monster. Local playwright Jerry Montoya brings his unique take on the age old story to the Chautauqua stage.
"Playwright Jerry R. Montoya’s adaptation of Mary Shelley’s horror story gets a supremely satisfying production here featuring a talented cast not that much older than the author (she was just 18 when she started the tale) and her compatriots when they challenged themselves to create the best monster story ever." -
From the pages of the classic book by Louisa May Alcott comes a Christmas play with all the characters you love—Jo, Meg, Beth, Amy. Also on hand are Laurie, Marmee and Aunt March, all in a heartwarming tale that celebrates love and the Holiday Season.
