Dracula adds his bite to Bridgeport

October 26, 2012 by  

The Bridgeport Theatre Company is now in its third year and, starting tonight, will be presenting a thrilling version of the play Dracula, by Bram Stoker, which will run for six straight performances at the end of October and into November. This exciting adaptation, by William McNulty, is dripping with blood as it investigates the most deadly and seductive Count Dracula.

This story was one of the very first vampire episodes to portray a haunting tale of a wicked count and his thirst for blood. This particular adaptation, directed by Maggie Pangrazio, will have the audience squirming in their seats with the thrills and chills surrounding them, although all ages are welcome.

The audience is encouraged to supply its own picnic, as this is a cabaret style presentation with seating in the church theater. The doors will open 45 minutes before the show starts and parking is assisted by attendants. The Bridgeport Theatre Company is a non-profit group found in May 2010 by members of a Connecticut performing artisan group and uses many local talents in each production.

Poster printing, brochure printing, and flyer printing may have been used by the theater company to promote this production to residents in this community and surrounding communities, such as Shelton, Connecticut. Tickets are $23 for adults and $18 for students and seniors.

Dracula will be playing from Friday, October 26 to Sunday, November 4 on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Performances on Friday and Saturday are 8:00 pm and Sundays are 2:00 pm. The play will be held at the Bridgeport Theatre Company located at 877 Park Avenue in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
