Benjamin Franklinstein Lives! is a new musical from the team that created Backbeard the Musical!  Tori Godwin’s orderly life is suddenly turned
topsy-turvy when she discovers that Benjamin Franklin has been hibernating in suspended animation in her basement for centuries. When a freak accident reawakens Ben, Tori and her friend Scott must help him adjust to life in the 21st century. Complicating the situation is the fact that when
Franklin’s energy drops, he transforms into a rampaging monster, desperately (and dangerously!) hungry for electricity. Can two kids and a
reanimated electric zombie patriot save the planet? Find out in Benjamin Franklinstein Lives!
