DRACULA SPECTACULA SCRIPT PDF

The original novel was written over a century ago, and its phenomenal success in print led to massive popularity on the stage and screen. Any literary classic falls peril to cliche, misinterpretation, and parody. Most adaptations of Frankenstein never show the monster in the way Shelley created him, vengeful, afraid, confused, well-spoken, even philosophical. The Opening of the Play The opening is strikingly different than the book and any other adaptation I have seen. Renfield, the raving, bug-eating, wanna-be vampire, servant of the dark lord, begins the play with a prologue to the audience. He explains that most people go though life not knowing his creator.

The original novel was written over a century ago, and its phenomenal success in print led to massive popularity on the stage and screen. Any literary classic falls peril to cliche, misinterpretation, and parody.

Most adaptations of Frankenstein never show the monster in the way Shelley created him, vengeful, afraid, confused, well-spoken, even philosophical. The Opening of the Play The opening is strikingly different than the book and any other adaptation I have seen. Renfield, the raving, bug-eating, wanna-be vampire, servant of the dark lord, begins the play with a prologue to the audience. He explains that most people go though life not knowing his creator. Thus, the play begins. Bosom friends, Mina and Lucy share secrets about their love lives.

Lucy reveals that she has not one but three offers of marriage. But handsome young gentlemen are not the only ones in pursuit of Mina and Lucy. She dumps her suitor Dr. So Seward tries to cheer himself up by focusing on his career. When Jonathan Harker finally returns home, he has nearly lost his life and his mind. He is undead!

And he is on his way to England! No, wait, he may already be in England! And he wants to drink your blood! Assuming that a director can cast high-caliber actors for the roles, this version of Dracula is bound to be a satisfying albeit old-fashioned theater experience. Challenges of "Dracula" As mentioned above, casting is key to a successful production. I recently watched a community theater performance in which all of the supporting actors were at the top of their game: a wonderfully warped Renfield, a boy-scout-natured Johnathan Harker, and a fiercely diligent Van Helsing.

But the Dracula that they cast. He was adequate. Maybe it was the accent. Maybe it was the stereotypical wardrobe. Dracula is a difficult character to pull off, nowadays. To make this show excellent, directors must find the right actor to title character. Fortunately, even though the show is named after the guy, Dracula appears sparingly throughout the play.
