Dracula is without a doubt the father of all vampires and this November his tale will be told once more as a new production sees the bloodthirsty tale resurrected on the stage of Wolverhampton Grand Theatre.
A Touring Consortium Theatre Production in association with the Everyman Theatre and Ewing Entertainment, it receives its World Premiere on Friday 28th September 2018 and visits Wolverhampton Grand Theatre from Tuesday 20 – Saturday 24 November.
Sexy, dark and thrilling, this brand-new stage adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic tale of obsession and horror is brought to opulent and irresistible life in a contemporary interpretation that includes all the definitive characters.
Completely re-imagined by an exciting creative team, discover the story that started them all. In Transylvania, enter the castle of Count Dracula and his three brides. The Count, who feeds on the elixir of young blood to look youthful, will take you on a deliciously evil ride as he pursues his victims and encounters Jonathan Harker, Professor Van Helsing and Dr. Seward along the way.
DRACULA will be brought shockingly to life with Illusions courtesy of Ben Hart, magician and illusion designer. The Magic Circle’s Young Magician of the Year (2007) designs extensively special effects for theatre, film and television. Recent theatrical credits include Fanny and Alexander (Old Vic); A Christmas Carol (RSC); and The Exorcist (West End).
