Think you know everything about DRACULA? Youâ€™ve never seen it like this before! So, how about sinking your teeth into the Twin Beach Playersâ€™ stylish, scary, and sometimes funny version? In this version, written by Ted Tiller, you will encounter some funny dialog amongst the dark deeds retelling the familiar tale. And, just when you have breathed a sigh of relief or a chuckle, you will find yourself scared out of your wits all over again!
A dark cloud has settled over the castle-sanatorium of Dr. Seward's estate outside of London. What should be a happy time for the coming marriage of Mina Murray, Dr Seward's ward, and Jonathan Harker, has become, instead, Mina's sickbed as a strange illness has beset her. Also, her best friend from childhood, Lucy Westerna, has recently passed with a similar symptom that has beset Mina, and all involved are greatly concerned for her health and welfare.
A strange Count has appeared next door in the formerly abandoned Castle Carfax. The members of the village are upset by the Countâ€™s presence and the inmates of the sanatorium have begun acting very disturbed since his arrival; in particular; one fellow named Renfield. Renfieldâ€™s demands to feast on insects and his constant escapes have left the staff in a tizzy. Attendants Hennessey and Wesley have been left in a continuing state of exhaustion attempting to chase Renfield down and control his weird feasting, his demanding of blood to satisfy his crazed appetite. The Maid senses the evil, stares silently, bewildered by the strange goings on in the household, but keeps the rooms clean in spite of the malignant destruction she perceives.
Dr Seward has sent for his colleague and college friend, the esteemed Dr. Van Helsing, as Van Helsing has devoted a life to science but has also dabbled heavily in studies of the occult, the black science that may in some way tie into the visitations that have taken place by the mysterious Count. As if destroying a vampire wasnâ€™t enough of a challenge, Van Helsing is faced with a bigger obstacle- convincing everyone that vampires DO exist! And, if something isnâ€™t done about it, and soon, Mina, and everyone else is in grave danger!
And could all of this have come about, because, Sybil Seward, Dr. Seward's, rambling, well-meaning sister has invited into their home the Count, to cross the threshold, never knowing what destruction, an invitation to a vampire, a hideous creature of the night, COUNT DRACULA, can cause.
