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."This serious drama is most appropriate for adults and teens.
