Graphic that shows a cloudy night, a bare tree with a lone crow standing on a branch. Reads: I am Frankenstein.


Evanston Township High School’s Fall Freshman/Sophomore production I Am Frankenstein by John Haman will be performed on October 26, 27, and 28, at 7:30pm in the Little Theatre. General admission tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for students/seniors. Tickets are available at


I Am Frankenstein unearths two creatures who were tortured and abandoned by their makers: Victor’s famous monster and the teenage writer Mary Shelley herself. A unique retelling of Shelley's classic, this theatrical adaptation involves the author herself as a principal character and introduces the signature innovation of The Blackbirds, a haunting avian chorus.


The Little Theatre is wheelchair accessible. Parking is recommended in Lots 2, 2A, and 2B behind the school; enter off of Lake or Church Streets. For more information, visit the ETHS Fine Arts website or call 847-424-7130.
