Pick of the Fringe Selection GIRAFFENSTEIN Extends into July
There's something wild on the loose, and a whole new kind of monster is coming to Hollywood. Official selection at the 2014 Hollywood Fringe Festival in Combined Artform "Pick of the Fringe," Giraffenstein will play two additional performances on Saturday, July 12 at 11:30pm and Saturday, July 19 at 11:55PM as part of The Encore! Producers' Extension Series.
Giraffenstein is the tale of Shelley's 'Frankenstein' as never seen before. Dr. Richard Giraffenstein, on his journey across the African savannah, creates a Monster, who, confused and angry, attempts to find a true home for himself. Song, dance, and danger. And they're all giraffes.
