Dracula play is the necks thing on the agenda

October 29, 2012 by  

The Stumptown Stages Brunish Theatre will this week present a tale of romance, murder, and comedy set to music.

‘Dracula, a Musical Nightmare’ is an outrageously funny stage play of Bram Stroker’s Dracula story. Making use of a musical hall troupe, it promises to be a highly amusing and suitably frightful way to celebrate Halloween.

Featuring Kirk Mouser as Chancey Deville, this musical nightmare tells the well-known story about the hapless Jonathan Harker – a lawyer who is assigned to a dismal and gloomy visit in Transylvania. Harker then takes on a bloodthirsty count as a client, from one of his colleagues who has become insane, to handle Dracula’s real estate acquisition. After meeting Dracula, Harker discovers a picture of his fiancée, Mina, and thinks she is reincarnated.

The book and lyrics were written by Douglas Johnson and the music was written by John Aschenbrenner. This musical play was directed by Tobias Andersen, choreographed by Christopher Moll, and musical direction was provided by Jon Quesenberry.

Flyer printing, poster printing, and brochure printing may have been used to advertise and promote this frightfully funny play to the community and surrounding areas. Tickets range between $15 and $30, depending on seating selection.

Dracula, a Musical Nightmare will take place on Wednesday, October 31 at 10:00 pm at the Portland Center for the Performing Arts, Brunish Theatre, located at 1111 S. W. Broadway Street in Portland, Oregon. For additional details, please visit the Stumptown Stages Brunish Theatre website or call 503-381-8686 during business hours.
