Count Dracula is bored.
He's pretty much sucked Transylvania dry, and he's looking for a new challenge. So it's off to New York, New York! The Big Apple! The town that never sleeps...that'll pose a challenge for sure. Dracula purchases The Carfax Theatre and decides to put on a big, flashy Broadway show...
THE DRACULA SPECTACULA!
Of course the Theatre just happens to be across the street from Dr. Seward's mental hospital where people have been mysteriously dying since The Count moved in. Just a coincidence? The play features a large cast of zany characters and is equal parts horror story and broadway show spoof! Dark and funny at the same time!
Cast Size: 30 with Doubling Possible. Running Time: 90 Minutes.

At the core of this play is Bram Stoker's 1897 novel...but that thing is such a snoozefest that I wrapped it in a candy confection of silliness and tomfoolery! It's always popular around Halloween, but last summer Palm Canyon Theatre in California did it as part of their Summer Theatre Camp for kids and they looked like they were having a blast with it! Lots of great parts for everyone!!!
Instead of moving to London and purchasing Carfax Abbey, in my version, Dracula moves to New York City and purchases the Carfax Theatre on Broadway! Apparently the Count has dreams of making in showbiz too!
Lots of room here to add your favorite Broadway numbers!
