Dracula at MOVP

The Mid-Ohio Valley Players proudly presents "Dracula" by John Mattera, based on the book by Bram Stoker, directed by David Offenberger and sponsored by The Locket Room Sports Bar.
 
This stage adaptation is closely based on the original, presenting the frightening story that made this a horror classic. The mysterious Count Dracula has gone to England where he is living on a large estate next to an insane asylum run by the incredibly naive Dr. Seward. The others that make up the cast of this thriller include Professor Van Helsing, who must convince Dr. Seward that Count Dracula is a vampire; Renfield, a fly-eating lunatic who serves the Count (once too often); beautiful Lucy Westenra, who has an uncanny resemblance to a girl Count Dracula loved over a hundred years ago; Charles, the Westenra family butler whose poor eyesight saves him from being hypnotized; as well as three female vampires! The plot develops with all the excitement of the original and the, in the end, the audience is given the jolt of a startling double twist.
 
The show is rated PG, and performances are October 6th, 7th, 13th, 14th, 20th, and 21st at 8 p.m. with a matinee performance on October 15th at 3 p.m. Tickets are $8, $10, and $12 avaliable at their website, the Marietta-Washington County CVB, Marty's Print Shop and the theater box office two hours prior to showtime. Contact the box office at (740) 374-9434.
