Different Stages opens its 2015-2016 season with Dracula
by Steven Dietz from the novel by Bram Stoker. An ominous presence haunts Lucy Westenra’s dreams. A ship founders on the Whitby rocks, its crew nowhere to be found. Rumors of a monstrous grey dog spread panic among the locals. An inmate of the local asylum raves about the arrival of his ‘Master’…
They are right to be afraid; Count Dracula has arrived in England. As their loved ones fall victim, a determined group led by Professor Van Helsing hunts the Count across England and back to his castle in Transylvania. Rich with both humor and horror, this play paints a wickedly theatrical picture of Stoker's famous vampire.
Dracula is directed by Melissa Vogt (Quills, Mauritius), and features voice actor JM Specht as the Count. Playing Lucy and Mina are Jessica Riley (Veronica’s Room) and Taylor Flanagan (When the Rain Stops Falling). Appearing as the crazed Renfield is Charles Stites (Fat Pig). Playing Professor Van Helsing, Dr. Seward and Jonathan Harker are Beau Paul (The Invention of Love), Trey Deason (Stars and Barmen) and Will Douglas (DNA). Rounding out the cast as Vixens, Maids and Attendants are Jessica Medina (The House of Bernarda Alba), Bridget Farias (The Trojan Women), Sara Blair (Boeing-Boeing) and Craig Kanne (Mauritius).
Performances are Thursdays through Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 6 p.m. No performance on Thanksgiving Thursday November 26, but an added performance on Wednesday December 9. Tickets are: $15 Thursdays and Wednesday December 9. Friday – Sunday’s are $20, $25 and $30.
