HORROR CLASSIC REIMAGINED
Tuesday 6th to Saturday 10th November 2018
Prepare for the fright of your life as the gothic vampire classic, Dracula, comes to Darlington Hippodrome from Tuesday 6 to Saturday 10 November.
Dracula is one of the most universally iconic novels ever written. A monumental, genre defining classic that is known the world over. Dracula remains the father of all vampire tales and this autumn an all new production sees the bloodthirsty tale resurrected as part of a nine-week tour, set to receive its most terrifying staging ever.
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. Ben Hart’s incredible illusion design will create an atmosphere of spine-chilling fear as audiences are shaken to their very core.
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.
Director Eduard Lewis said “audiences can expect to be scared and entertained and have a really great, unique night at the theatre. It’s a really exciting play but it’s not just a play, it’s a show with exciting music and fascinating illusions and some brilliant acting. We have an amazing script by Jenny King that has robust, interesting characters, on top of which we’ve got some amazing production effects, Ben Hart is doing some brilliant illusions for us and there’s an original score by our composer Paul Ewing that’s going to really lift the whole piece.”
Dracula runs at Darlington Hippodrome from Tuesday 6 to Saturday 10 November.
