Dracula: The Radio Play
Adapted by Philip Grecian
Directed by Melissa Schnepper
The show is based on the classic novel “Dracula” by Bram Stoker, and adapted for radio theatre by Philip Grecian. This is a staged production of an old time radio show with actors portraying multiple roles, sound effects created on stage, and old timey radios ads - all performed in front of a live audience.
The year is 1888 and Professor Van Helsing tells us, "I have long followed the trail of the vampire, It lives on…for centuries…draining the blood…the life…from its victims, causing them also to become vampires. And this is our story. The story of a small band or mortals who faced the most powerful vampire of them all."
Produced by Evansville Community Theatre at Emma's Table, 104 W. Main St., Evansville, WI
Performances: October 25-27, 2018

Auditions will be held on the following days:
Auditions are Sunday, September 9 from 1 to 3 p.m. and Tuesday, September 11 from 6 to 9 p.m.
This is a staged production of an old time radio show with actors reading from scripts, so no memorization is required. The show features actors portraying multiple roles, sound effects created on stage, and old timey radios ads written for local sponsors - all performed in front of a live audience.
There are ten vocal roles for adults - seven men and three women. Mature teens will be considered. A few might do a little singing. The characters use English (Cockney) and Transylvanian accents, so please be prepared to try accents and read from the script at auditions. No experience is needed - newcomers are encouraged to audition!
The show will also need several “sound effects artists” to ring bells, open doors, rattle chains, crank the wind machine, and more. Training is provided.
Auditions are at Emma’s table in John M. Evans Hall, 104 W. Main St. in Evansville. No preparation is needed for auditions.
