Actors Theatre of Louisville and Managing Director Kevin E. Moore are thrilled to announce the return of Fifth Third Bank’s Dracula, in the Bingham Theatre through October 31, 2018.
With fangs bared and eyes a glow, Louisville’s favorite vampire is back! Based on Bram Stoker’s gothic tale of the immortal Transylvanian count andhis unexpectedly feisty human prey, this fast-paced, fright-filled adaptation is a Halloween treat that drips with suspense—and even more blood.
For over 20 years, Actors Theatre has brought this exhilarating, high-stakes vampire adventure to Louisville audiences.
This fall’s production is particularly notable as Drew Fracher, Actors Theatre veteran director and fight choreographer, comes aboard as director. Fracher shares, “This show presents such unique challenges, from finding a little freshness to the staging to incorporating new scares, thrills and chills. Audiences will see something of a new take on certain characters and those familiar with the production will spot some fun new things happening.”
This season promises to be Louisville’s most thrilling fright-fest yet, featuring both new and familiar faces.
Santino Cravendons the Count’s in famous cloak, opposite Actors Theatre veteran Grant Goodman (In The Next Room, or the vibrator play) in the role of Van Helsing.
Local favorite Neill Robertson will return as the notorious Renfield, a role for which he won the 2018 Arts-Louisville/Broadway World “Best Actor in a Play” award.
Louisville audiences might also recognize Crystian Wiltshire (Kentucky Shakespeare Festival, Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, Know Theatre of Cincinnati), who will join the company as the dashing Jonathan Harker.
Kurt Uy and Rin Allen join the cast as Dr. Seward and Lucy, respectively.
