Monster Makers

A musical triple-feature inspired by three monstrously true, behind-the-scenes tales of the most famous monster movies in cinema history!

In 1920s Germany, director F.W. Murnau fears he may lose a lawsuit brought by the estate of Bram Stoker over his silent vampire film Nosferatu, which is suspiciously similar to Dracula. Will all of the prints be destroyed?

In 1930s Hollywood, make-up man Jack Pierce works carefully to create the defining look for Frankenstein’s monster while trying to meet the demands of the studio. Will he get the credit he deserves?

In 1970s England, actor Peter Cushing hopes to be able to finish the final British sequels to Frankenstein and Dracula before outside forces threaten to get in the way. Will his horror fans be disappointed?

Will all of these men triumph while fighting for their art against the various demons they must face? As these famous monster makers each discover – sometimes real life can be even more frightening than the movies!
