Essex Community Players is pleased to announce the cast for our fall 2017 production of “Dracula”

Originally dramatized by John L. Balderston & Hamilton Deane from Bram Stoker’s world-famous novel, Dracula. As adapted by William McNulty.

Dracula – Just about everybody has heard the story, and has a reaction to it.  It’s a delicious mingling of horror and the supernatural.  For our production, the audience will be dislodged from the familiar here and now, transported seamlessly from one mysterious location to another, and drawn into a world filled with combat, magic, screams, with, of course, lots of blood. In the very end, the audience will wake from their trance and wonder what just happened.

Performance dates:    Oct 13 – 15, Oct 20 – 22 and Oct 27, 28, 2017

Curtain time is 7:30 pm on all Friday evenings and Saturday evenings through Oct 21. Matinee performances on Sundays, and Saturday Oct 28 begin at 2:00pm

Dracula is directed by Cheri Gagnon and Produced by Andrew MacKechnie.
