“First you must invite him in...”
Combining imaginative staging and her trademark theatrical invention with spectacular flying sequences and specially-commissioned music, Theresa Heskins’ new adaptation captures Bram Stoker’s enduring classic in all its epic sweep and intimate terror.

They are right to be afraid. Count Dracula, one of the Undead who drink the blood of the living, has arrived in England. As their loved ones fall victim, a determined group led by Professor Van Helsing hunts the Count through the length of England and back to his castle in Transylvannia. Now it is time for one final show-down.
