Lara Cowin, whose credits include Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom (No. 1 UK Tour), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Courtyard Theatre) and Hidden – The FCO Plays (Barons Court Theatre), will play Elizabeth Lavenza, Frankenstein’s adopted cousin, while Max Gallagher takes the role of Henry Clerical, his childhood friend. Max’s recent theatrical work includes James and the Giant Peach (Sell a Door UK, Doha, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Hong Kong Tour), Wuthering Heights the Musical (Iris Theatre/Actors Church, Covent Garden), PIAF (Bridewell Theatre and Charing Cross Theatre) and Oh No! Not Snow! (Royal and Derngate, Northampton).
As the voice of the creature and lead puppeteer, we welcome Louis Labovitch, whose varied career has included four years with the musical STOMP! (US Tour), six months performing a variety of roles in Venezia the Story (Teatro San Gallo, Venice) an original musical for children, The Little Dragon, in South Korea, and most recently a two-month run in the West End as Duke Orsino in Twelfth Night (Grassroots Shakespeare). Last but not least we’re delighted to have Ashley Sean-Cook taking the role of Robert Walton, Captain of the Prometheus.
