Cast of Characters: 6 men, 6 women, and one girl ages 7-10.

ROBERT RENFIELD, a lunatic of unique appetites and an unfortunate sense of humor.

A MONSTER, a vicious supernatural demon; the shape assumed by Dracula when he isn’t concerned about appearances. Part zombie, part werewolf, he loves a good chase and is always thirsty

MINA GRANT, a beautiful undead woman in her late twenties. We will see her in various stages of vampirism.

MARGARET SULLIVAN, Dr. Seward’s loyal assistant. Irish. Tries to conceal her working class roots with an air of propriety.

ABRAM VAN HELSING, an older man, still in good physical condition, with a razor mind and an intense interest in the super-natural.

THOMAS SEWARD, an intelligent, fine young Englishman in his early thirties. The former fiancé of the late Mina Grant. A deeply caring, vulnerable human being.

COUNT DRACULA, a brute who revels in the pain and suffering he brings to others. Capable of enormous charm and courtly manners when such affectations are called for.

THE BRIDES, three Vampiresses with seductive ways and dire purposes

THE CHILD, female, between 7 & 10. Wears a communion dress.

NORBERT BRIGGS, an attendant at the asylum. A rough customer, not entirely a brute, but capable of violent behavior when pushed to it.

LUCY WESTPHAL, a lovely young Englishwoman. Extremely intelligent, and when not being drained of blood on a regular basis, quite vivacious

JONATHAN HARKER, a young solicitor. Handsome, impetuous, madly in love with Lucy.
