The cast of Dracula to be staged at the King's School.

The King’s School will stage an adaptation of the famous Gothic horror Dracula next week.

The cast will be performing Steven Dietz’s version of the Bram Stoker novel on November 25, 26 and 27.

This dramatic version includes the seductiveness and power that Dracula can wield to charm and ensnare his victims to make them do his will as well as the sound motifs of bats and wolves.

The key roles are being played by Sixth Formers from King’s and KGGS and it will be ‘fangs’ for the memory for James Clack (Dracula), Jacob Barnett (Van Helsing), David Theisler (Seward), Charlie Walters (Renfield), Matilda Melinn (Mina) and Laura Bolshaw (Lucy) who will all be leaving next June.

This is drama teacher Alison Cunningham’s 17th production for the school.

The play includes a number of special blood effects thanks to Lucy Setchell, who is studying theatrical make-up at Grantham College, and has more people behind the scenes than in the cast – all the production roles are being performed by students from both schools so they gain firsthand experience of running a show.

Tickets are £5 and £3.50 concessions and can either be purchased from the King’s School office (Tel: 01476 563180) or on the door before the performances which start at 7.30pm.
