It’s a play to get your teeth into


Blackeyed Theatre, in association with South Hill Park, will be presenting a performance of Dracula at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre on Thursday, November 28.

Bram Stoker’s story has been adapted by John Ginman, directed by Eliot Giuralarocca and features music by Ron McAllister.

The performance starts at 7.30pm.

This is a vibrant and creative blend of the gothic and the contemporary. Drawing eclectically on a wide range of forms of popular entertainment that were established or emerging at the time, this vibrant and brilliantly creative version of the classic Victorian thriller will remain faithful to the original.

Bram Stoker’s timeless gothic thriller embodies the struggle to break taboos, resist temptation and stop the unknown outside becoming the enemy within.

As Dracula’s shadow looms large over England, a small group of young men and women, led by Professor Van Helsing, are locked in a struggle for survival where only the fittest will survive.

Brought to the stage by highly acclaimed Blackeyed Theatre, Dracula promises an exciting and thought-provoking theatrical experience.

Director, Eliot Giuralarocca, said: “I was really keen to draw on the wide range of theatrical forms that were popular at that time and I wanted to put together an ensemble of strong storytellers; creative and versatile performers that could sing, move well and play an instrument.

“I’m really excited with the team we have in place.

“It’s a fabulously talented cast, with a muscular new adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel by John Ginman and original music by Ron McAllister.

“We have all the ingredients needed to create something exciting, memorable and thought provoking. I’m hoping we’ll give the audiences something that they can really get their teeth into!”

Tickets for Dracula are priced at £14.25, with concessions available and can be purchased by contacting the box office for more details on 01332 255800.
