Here is more on the show:

LADY DRACULA by Tim Kelly

 

    Here’s an entertaining ’vampire’ play that begins where most Dracula stories end.  Mina was a victim of Count Dracula.  Beautiful but incredibly evil, she has searched the earth for a young man who would resemble her first love...  Jonathan Harker.  She discovers him in Tod Wilson, an innovative teacher who opens a school for brilliant students not far from New York City.  

    The property (donated by Lady Dracula) is a forbidding pile of haunted stones called Malice House.  Lady Dracula keeps to the shadows except when her horrid thirst forces her to select new victims.  When one student decides he wants to investigate bats, he sets into action a chain of events that soon has the school invaded by the police and a descendant of vampire-hunter Van Helsing.  

    The destruction of the vampire is unlike any you’ve seen before, and it will have the audience gripped to their seats.
