About

 

Performing at the Bunbury Repertory Club in December 2019, Dracula, The Vampire Play is adapted by Tim Kelly from the novel by Bram Stoker and promises to be an enjoyable, if a little blood thirsty, evening out.  5 shows only in the first two weeks of December, the audience will be spellbound and terrified of well-known local thespians Shane Trryell and Alli Pyne's portrayals of Dracula and Miss Lucy.   Tickets are available now at www.bunburyrepertory.org.au

Play Synopsis

When Dr. Van Helsing, a specialist in obscure maladies, discovers that beautiful Lucy Westenra is the victim of a vampire at Dr Quincy's Sanatorium, suspicion falls on a mysterious neighbour, Count Dracula, and his frighteningly beautiful wives. The large cast contains many fine acting parts, from the haunting vampire wives to the ever-popular Renfield, who fancies a diet of flies and spiders. There are young lovers, comic staff members, sanatorium guests and Jonathan Harker, first to fall victim to the vampire's thirst. The story of his journey to Dracula's fortress will have your audiences on the edge of their seats. Intermingled with the drama is a fine thread of comedy that helps relieve mounting tension and chills. Tim Kelly has developed a classic masterwork that always terrifies and delights the cast and audience.

Performances are being held at the club’s home ‘Little Theatre’ Pratt Road, Eaton.
