Dracula - A Comic Thriller Starring Shirley Holmes and Jennie Watson

Large Mixed Cast

Kent R. Brown Price: $9.95

Having munched their way through most of the population in rural Transylvania, Count Dracula and his loyal band of groupies, the Draculettes, have set their sights on the bright lights of London

It's therefore imperative that the Count be stopped before all of London becomes his personal buffet

But alas, the renowned sleuthing duo Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson are vacationing somewhere in the Belgian Congo and won’t return for weeks

So what to do?

Fortunately, Shirley Holmes and Jennie Watson - the resourceful nieces of the famous detectives - prefer to save London from annihilation than study for their upcoming exams!

They're joined by Sabrina Van Helsing - daughter of Bram Stoker’s celebrated vampire slayer - and her close friends, Jonathan Harker and Wilhemmina Murray

And Lucretia Dobrinski - Sherlock Holmes’ no-nonsense housekeeper who refuses to be left behind

Now this courageous band of novice vampire slayers sets off to do battle with the Prince of Darkness

Lightning bolts and thunderclaps abound as the audience arrives at the foreboding Castle Dracula

And trembles at Dracula’s magic powers

And is thrilled by a breathtaking race across Europe

With Dracula on his schooner and Jonathan in his carriage, who will be first to arrive on the English coast!

Other characters include the lovely Lucy, who is rapidly falling under Dracula’s spell

And Doctor John Seward, bumbling director of a local insane asylum

And Renfield, a fly-eating lunatic who seeks immortality by becoming Dracula’s servant

But can our intrepid young heroes vanquish Dracula before he devours all of London?

There are certain to be bites and screams galore

And Vampires that bubble in the sunlight

And an ending that will surprise even the most savvy of theatre-goers

All accompanied by an onstage team of musicians and sound-effects artists who interact with the cast while underscoring the action with a wide range of comic sound effects and musical accents
