Drink deep... and live forever! A terrifying and passionate new musical based on the world-famous novel by Bram Stoker. “Dracula The Musical” is a thrilling drama of suspense and a Gothic romance of dreamlike temptation from the extraordinary team of Christopher Hampton, Don Black and Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, The Civil War). Set in Europe at the end of the Victorian Age, the story follows the famed vampire as he lusts for new blood. Jonathan Harker and Mina Murray fall victim to Dracula's unnatural charm and, along with Doctor Van Helsing, must fight Dracula's supernatural powers. DRACULA will enthrall audiences with its powerful score and its potential for showcasing dark or gothic sets and costumes. Stagecraft experts will love bringing the undead to life in this haunting musical of unrequited love.
Jonathan Harker: The straightforward Englishman devoted to Mina. He is a suave lawyer who travels to Dracula's estate.
Count Dracula: Mysterious, passionate, and seductive. The vampire leader who desires a change of scene in hopes of obtaining fresh blood.
Mina Murray: Strong, intelligent, and capable of great passion, she is the fiancee of Jonathan.
Renfield: Obsessed and insane, but with a conscience underneath. He is Dracula's faithful servant with a meek demeanor.
Dr. Jack Seward: A logical and practical director of the local insane asylum. He becomes a potential suitor of Lucy's later in the story.
Lucy Westenra: The typical slightly naive, beautiful ingenue who is a loyal friend to Lucy. She is engaged to Arthur.
Quincey Morris: A simple, good-natured Texan who is always up for adventure. He competes for Lucy's affections.
Arthur Holmwood: An average, quiet homebody who will fight when pushed. He becomes engaged to his childhood love, Lucy.
