Gabrielino High School’s Drama Club will present their production of “Dracula” tonight, Saturday, and Sunday in the Goodson Theater. Tickets will be sold at the door for $5.
“Dracula,” originally an 1897 horror novel by Bram Stoker, is about a vampire named Count Dracula. He moves to London in order to spread the curse of the undead.
This is not the first time that Drama Club advisor Jan Gluskin has directed this play. There were two other performances of “Dracula” prior to this one, but Gluskin has ”always wanted to do it again on the great stage and this seemed like a [good] year.”
Gabrielino’s version will include a rewritten opening that is brought in from the movie. The original play only called for nine characters, but Gluskin wanted to bring in other characters from the movie to create a number of roles fit for a total of 25 cast members.
“Some [directors] decorate their sets with art. I decorate it with people,” said Gluskin.
