Thrills and chills are headed to the Performing Arts Center at Hopewell Valley Central High School this fall, as the CHS drama department prepares to present Dracula on Friday, October 23rd and Saturday, October 24th.
The play, based upon the famous novel by Bram Stoker, was adapted for the stage by Mickey Fisher, a Hollywood based screenwriter most well known for his work as the creator of the show Extant, which aired over the past two summers on CBS.
This play follows the journey of Jonathan Harker as he travels to Transylvania to do business with the mysterious Count Dracula. When their business is concluded, Dracula heads to England in search of his prey. Aided by the notorious vampire hunter, Van Helsing, Jonathan and his friends must battle Dracula to save their beloved Lucy and Mina.
Taking place in the Victorian setting of the novel, the production enhances it with a steampunk, rock and roll edge. The cast, crew and technical team have been hard at work on the production since the second week of the school year.
Tickets are available in advance of the production by visiting www.showtix4u.com and at the door on the day of the show. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for students and seniors. This show promises excitement and perhaps a few scares, so be sure to get your tickets now!
