For those of you about to view the latest film clip – I offer my strongest apologies. In my desire to encourage children to embrace drama, I have as usual made a complete fool of myself. I know this is not out of the ordinary but … well – oh just watch it!
The story so far:
Horace Gawp has turned up at The Laboratory feeling down in the dumps as he joined a drama group who were putting on the play “Frankenstein’s Revenge – a play full of shifty manoeuvres and ” Unfortunately, everyone has quit the group since Horace joined. Mistress Loony tells him not to worry as she will put an advertisement in the paper to audition actors. They will put the play on themselves. (Part 1 – to see this episode click on the category sidebar and then choose Frankenstein’s Revenge. ) .
Albert Chadwick, a used car salesman, auditions for the part – unfortunately, he not only wants the part of Dr Frankenstein, which Mr Gawp is after, but he fiddles with the script rather. (Part 2 – to see this episode click on the category sidebar and then choose Frankenstein’s Revenge. )
Mistress Loony is nowhere to be found when a rather mysterious lady turns up to audition as Elizabeth. Things do not turn out well for Horace Gawp.
