About The Script:

Setting London, Transylvania

“Classic, not campy this tribute to Bram Stoker’s Dracula brings style, substance and sinister action to the stage.  It requires versatile actors who can handle complex language and emotion, and bring realism and depth and a sense of genuine horror to this tale of supernatural occurrences.”

Character Breakdown:

Needed for Dracula are 4 women 18yrs-25yrs , 2 men 25-35,  2 men 30-50, 1 man 40-60

*Renfield (M 30-50) – A patient in Seward’s asylum. While sometimes apparently rational, he has a habit of eating flies and spiders.

*Mina Murray (F 18-25) – Mina is young and innocent but also brave and practical. She is engaged to Jonathan Harker, who was waylaid on his business trip to Transylvania, and whose journal becomes a key to discovering the vampire’s arrival in London

*Lucy Westenra (F 18-25) –Innocent, but also smart and high spirited. She is best friends with Mina. She is courted by suitors, including Dr. John Seward and is Dracula’s next intended victim.

*Jonathan Harker (M 25-35) – Young businessman, his good-natured trust preventing him from questioning until it is too late. As a solicitor, or lawyer, he finalizes the sale of London property to the Count, but is imprisoned in order for Dracula to study and then steal his identity. Harker is fiercely protective of his fiancée, Mina.

*Dr. John Seward (M 25-35) – Loyal and passionately committed to the causes he believes in, he is a consummate scientist, seeking reason in the most unreasonable of environments.

*Dracula (M 30-50) – an unseen presence for much of the play, and when he does appear, he does so in various guises. At the time of Harker’s visit the count appears as an older man, then he disguises himself as Harker, mimicking his manner, and later — restored by the buffet of London’s blood supply — appears in a younger incarnation. He is always smart, charming, and primal without being crass. In this adaptation he is not campy, comic or consciously “spooky. “

*Abraham Van Helsing (M 40-60) – Philosopher, scientist, and a professor. A learned man of action. He is a mentor to Seward. When Lucy’s case proves beyond Seward’s expertise, Van Helsing’s experience teaches him to look for clues to other causes he dares not discuss openly.

*Vixens (2 F- 18-25) Dracula’s servants and victims. Will also play maids, attendants and other characters throughout the production.

*Attendants (1M 18-35) Will play attendants and other characters throughout the production
