McKeesport Little Theater is excited to be bringing Paul Michael Brown’s Dracula, a Musical to our stage once again! With music by Al Snyder and Executive Produced by Rita Brown, Paul’s Mother, Dracula, a Musical is not your typical “stake in the heart” vampire tale but rather a hauntingly beautiful love story.
Mina Van Helsing’s life is on the brink of drastic change! As the daughter of the renowned psychiatrist, Dr. Van Helsing, Mina has been raised in considerable comfort even though the basement of the Van Helsing Estate is an asylum for the insane. Jonathan and Lucy Harker are the adopted wards of Dr. Van Helsing since childhood, and it is here, on the outskirts of London in the early spring of 1927, that we find Mina engaged to Jonathan. A storm arises on the night they were to have their engagement party which has been canceled, not due to the storm but due to the bizarre murder of Sylvia, Mina’s dearest friend and intended bridesmaid. The household is on edge awaiting the capture of Renfield, a patient of Dr. Van Helsing, who is a suspect in Sylvia’s murder and other recent nearby killings. Lucy, always a petulant child, is consumed by an overwhelming desire to escape the confines of her caged existence. Into this brewing cauldron of disturbing events steps a mysterious and strikingly handsome visitor, Count Dracula. Why does this stranger evoke such new emotions in Mina? Why does she feel the nascent seed of passion that Jonathan’s self-control and aloofness never sparked? Is it Count Dracula’s disturbing declaration that Mina’s countenance is the very same of his long ago fiance? Will anyone else die? Will Renfield be captured? Will Mina act on her emotions? Get your tickets now to see how the story unfolds.
