Parent Pill: A monster production


Food, especially during tech week, becomes like the nectar of the gods. Recently, I walked into the green room with a couple of buckets of Munchkins, and it was like a scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds.” I almost didn’t make it out alive.

So here I am still dealing with the wig dilemma. I cannot fail at this. I won’t fail at this. I will produce a light brown wig, darn it. And if I do, I hope you will all come to see my modest contribution to a most incredible production.

Supporting the local arts is so important. Join us ... won’t you?

“Frankenstein” will be performed in the Newburyport High School auditorium tomorrow and Friday and Nov. 14-16 at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the door or by emailing
