AUDITION NOTICE: Dracula: A Comedy of Terrors
by Gordon Greenberg & Steve Rosen

Audition date: March 18 & 20, 2024 at 7pm in The Haywood Studio

Dir. Nikki Favell

A gender-bending, quick-changing, laugh-out-loud reimagining of the gothic classic, ‘Dracula’. Coming to our studio this July.

 

SYNOPSIS
Think ‘The 39 Steps’ meets ‘Monty Python’. This new show (hot off its Off-Broadway run just weeks ago!) is a comedy the actors can really sink their teeth into – pun intended. A meek English real es-tate agent takes a journey to Transylvania to meet a mysterious client, Count Dracula. Famed fe-male vampire hunter Van Helsing chases Drac as he journeys to the British countryside, to find his newest obsession, Lucy. Flexible casting.

 

CHARACTERS

Actor 1 — Male, 20-40 — Harker, Cavendish, Worthington, Havemercy, Bosun

Actor 2 — Any, 30-60 — Dr. Westfeldt, Renfield, Captain

Actor 3 — Female, 20-40 — Lucy, Kitty, Driver

Actor 4 — Any, 30-60 — Mina, Van Helsing

Actor 5 — Any, 20-40 — Dracula

There is opportunity for an extra actor to take one or two of the above roles as a sixth cast member or to switch a couple of roles between actors. I encourage all genders to go for Dracula, but please come with both confidence and charisma. Certain characters require very specific accents so please get in touch and I will send character descriptions, script sections and answer any questions.

 

Production dates: July 10-13, 2024, The Haywood Studio

Director: Nikki Favell
