In addition to the performance, the night will also include the presentation of the first-ever Sci-Fest LA Icon Award to legendary filmmaker Roger Corman (Little Shop of Horrors) and will be proceeded by a wine reception and silent auction in the lobby featuring posters, books, and memorabilia signed especially for this event by icons Stan Lee (Marvel), Neil Gaiman (Coraline, Sandman), and Don Mancini (creator of Chucky). Also joining the reception will be sci-fi movie legends Barbara Bain (Space: 1999), Jackie Joseph (Little Shop of Horrors), and Lee Meriwether (Star Trek and Batman). At the conclusion of the evening, Sci-Fest LA will announce their 2016 line of mind-bending shows selected for their upcoming festival in May.
As mentioned, this performance of Frankenstein is serving as a fundraising event for the upcoming Sci-Fest LA one-act play festival. Tickets for Frankenstein are offered as rewards to supporters of Sci-Fest LA who donate $55, $75, or $100 via their website.
For those unfamiliar with this unique and amazing event, Sci-Fest LA is Hollywood's annual one-act play festival that celebrates all things science fiction and will be returning May 5-29, 2016. Co-founded by veteran Los Angeles theatre producers Michael Blaha and Lee Costello and actor David Dean Bottrell (Boston Legal), Sci-Fest LA’s mission is to produce an annual festival of new, beautifully realized, and visually compelling sci-fi one-acts featuring many well-known actors from beloved sci-fi and fantasy franchises.
