“The last I saw of Count Dracula was… a red light of triumph in his eyes”
Sept. 12 – Oct. 21
As autumn begins our thoughts turn to the holiday most revered by children and by adults who refuse to grow up – Halloween. And what is Halloween without the infamous, lusty, and bloodsucking Count Dracula? The classic story unfolds as we watch Lucy Seward succumb to an Helsing hunt the true cause of her malady, a vampire stalking London. Watch the chase as the undead terrify the countryside. Will the virtuous triumph of will Dracula succeed in spreading the curse of the Nosferatu?
We’re doing the 1924 adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. It was the first authorized adaptation and was done by Hamilton Deane and John Balderston. It’s the best known version thanks to Bela Lugosi,” said Madison Mooney, Playhouse Executive Director.
“Even with a classic, there’s room for creativity. That’s why we chose James Rice as the director,” said Sean Gray, Playhouse Artistic Director. “He’s got an impressive resume that includes shows all over southern California.
“Earlier this year he directed our production of Neil Simon’s Rumors. It was wonderful. I trust him to get as much as possible from the script, the actors and the sound and lighting designers. And he knows how to get the most from a stage with an audience on three sides.
