Valley Drama Presents “Dracula” Nov. 5-7 (11/3/2021)

Nov. 3, 2021 | Valley High School's Drama Family presents “Dracula,” based on the novel by Bram Stoker. This production is for mature audiences.

Directed by Valley Drama Director Stacy Hansen, this “new adaptation of 'Dracula' restores the suspense and seduction of Bram Stoker’s classic novel to the stage. As Count Dracula begins to exert his will upon the residents of London, they try to piece together the clues of his appearances — in a valiant attempt to save themselves from a hideous fate. Rich with both humor and horror, this play paints a wickedly theatrical picture of Stoker’s famous vampire.”
