Dracula_theatre

Vampires invade Oswego State in the theatrical adaptation of Bram Stoker’s "Dracula." As the play opens, we find ourselves in London, where Dr. Seward (Nate Roy) enlists the help of Dr. Van Helsing (Sarah Sterling) to try and discover the source of the mysterious illness that has overtaken Seward’s daughter, Lucy (Jessica Quindlen). Dr. Van Helsing discovers that the source of Lucy’s illness can be attributed to blood loss, caused by a vampire –not just any vampire but Count Dracula (Samuel Austin) himself. With the aid of Lucy’s fiancé Jonathan Harker (Dylan Duffy), the doctors set out to cure Lucy in the only way possible: killing Dracula.

The cast includes Brien Bianchi as the attendent, Ashlee Grant as the maid, Ariel Marcus as one of Dracula’s minions, and Erik Shuler as Renfield, a patient of Dr. Seward. The show is directed by theatre professor Mark Cole Performances will take place at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 15 and 16, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 17, in Tyler Hall’s Waterman Theatre.
