Playwright Deitz reinvents Stoker’s masterpiece with a fresh perspective, enthralling audiences with its unconventional storytelling and captivating characters.

“Good vs Evil. This is an ongoing battle that has been here from the beginning of the human race,” said Fralix. “People have been telling these stories around the world.  People crave these stories,  especially the ones that evil almost wins. The story of the vampire is one of those stories. The vampire has scared generations of people in many ages, countries, and cultures. One of the most famous stories, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, has been adapted for the stage. Stoker’s story has arrived to Pulaski. If you love good stories, classic stories and scary stories, come see Dracula come to life at STAAR.” 

“I want your fear,” Dracula says. “For your fear, like a current, rushes through your body. Your fear makes your heart pound, it renders your veins rich and full. Your fear hemorrhages deliciously within you.”

As Dracula begins to exert his will upon the residents of London, they try to piece together the clues of his appearances in a valiant attempt to save themselves from a hideous fate. Rich with both humor and horror, this play paints a wickedly theatrical picture of Stoker’s famous vampire.

Deitz’s adaptation of Dracula weaves a spellbinding tapestry of terror, passion, and the supernatural. With its unconventional narrative structure and eerie character portrayals, this play breathes new life into Bram Stoker’s timeless masterpiece. As the curtains fall and the echoes of Dracula’s legacy resonate in the minds of the audience, one thing becomes clear – the immortal tale of the vampire count shall forever remain an enigmatic symphony of shadows, etched into the hearts of theater-goers for generations to come.
