Glencullen Dundrum MDS are excited to be back for an exciting ’19/’20 season. We are delighted to announce that our play for this year is ‘House of Frankenstein’ by Martin Downing at the dlr Mill Theatre Dundrum from Tuesday 26th – Saturday 30th November 2019. The play is directed by Liam Corrigan.
“Those who enter Castle Frankenstein never live long. Their fate is sealed once that door closes behind them! You cannot imagine the horror which awaits you if you remain!”
Baron Victor Von Frankenstein, bored with his attempts to give life to the lifeless, has turned his attention to curing the supposedly incurable! In a grim castle in the Carpathian Mountains, he and his long suffering wife Elisabeth, the unsavory hunchback Ygor, the Valkyrian Frau Lurker and the Monster play host to various mysterious and menacing denizens of the night (invited or otherwise) who visit the Baron to beg him to rid them of their vices. But this challenge, although a welcome diversion for the headstrong young scientist, proves to be no picnic … more of a living nightmare! A highly entertaining wise cracking comedy horror!
We are also delighted to announce that our 2020 musical is ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’ in the dlr Mill Theatre from Tuesday 31st March to Saturday 4th April 2020. . Music by Jeanine Tesori, Lyrics by Dick Scanlan, and Book by Richard Morris and Dick Scanlan.
