Bane's Influenced Frankenstein to Run from Dec. 4-6 at LHS


LIVINGSTON, NJ - Livingston High School’s (LHS) fall drama, Frankenstein, which was adapted from Mary Shelley’s 1818 best-selling classic by Victor Gialanella for the LHS stage, is running for three performances at 7:00 p.m., from Thursday, Dec. 4 to Saturday, Dec. 6, at the LHS auditorium. Tickets are $12 and may be purchased online by clicking HERE and/or purchased at the door.

Directed by Janet Storti, the play follows young Dr. Frankenstein as he attempts to fathom the secrets of life and death. In this age of artificial intelligence, genetic engineering, and bio-terrorism, this story raises profound questions about what it means to be human.

The play boasts sets created by the school’s stagecraft classes. The experts from the Bane Haunted House, which moved to Livingston this Halloween, inspired and assisted the students in their work from props to make-up and more.

According to a previous TAP article, the Condrons, who own Banes, have been sharing their expertise with LHS students interested in recreating their own “set of scare” for Frankenstein. Recently, they led groups on the haunted house tour, pointing out materials and props that the students could borrow or recreate on their own back at LHS. This relationship will continue throughout the year, with students helping with set design for other Bane ventures. In addition, Bane’s lead makeup artists, Matthew Smith and Peter Rivera, will also be also getting into the act by teaching makeup and planning a seminar on special effects.

Those who attend the play will see the following cast members in key roles: Josh Young, Sam Thor, Ryan Healy, Jared Palmer Kirsh, Rachael Richard, Samantha Kahn, Natalie Kahn, Brandon Binsol, Bailey Grey, Austin Biss, John Lanigan, and Kerry Zak.

Attendees will also gaze upon the stage, props, make-up, lighting and more by the crew including Brian Megaro, technical director; Grace Bracci, production manager; Jordan Wagner, stage manager; Christina Cuppari, technical manager; Mallory Rummel, scenic artist; Evan Anderson, master electrician; Max Schnapper, sound engineer; Martha Ackermann, costumes; and Danielle DiTonno, prop mistress.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
