Join Kentwood Players as they delve into the famously haunting story “Dracula” as dramatized by Hamilton Deane and John L. Baldeston, based on the novel by Bram Stoker, from September 10 to October 16 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m., at the Westchester Playhouse located at 8301 Hindry Avenue in Westchester . The production is directed by Shawn K. Summerer and produced by Alison Mattiza and Elizabeth Bouton Summerer. Featured in the cast are Samantha Barrios, Marlee Candell, Paul Guay, Ben Lupejkis, Ken MacFarlane, Daniele Manzin, Jeffrey Olin, and Gary Shaw as Dracula.
“Dracula” is a chilling and spooky tale about a bizarre illness fallen upon Lucy Seward, daughter to Dr. Seward, owner of an English Sanatorium in the early 1900s. Dr. Seward and Lucy’s fianceé, Jonathan Harker, call in the help of Professor Van Helsing, an expert in the macabre. Their search for answers leads them deeper and deeper into the terrors of the unknown and the unthinkable. Could a vampire be the answer to this chilling mystery?
