Professor Van Helsing and his brave comrades must hunt down and destroy the profoundly evil Count Dracula. But the Count is exceedingly resourceful, employing superhuman strength, psychic powers, and shape-changing to confound and frustrate his antagonists. Culminating in a wild and shocking confrontation between the King of Vampires and those who would rid the world of him, this performance is an action-packed, frightening telling of Bram Stoker's classic tale of horror. Director Carl Menninger leaves gender assumptions behind in this production, which kicks off the spring theatre/musical theatre season.
