The Tennessee Valley Theatre recently announced it has added two Friday showings of its current play, Steven Dietz’s “Dracula,” directed by Tony McCuiston, leading up to Holloween.

Showtimes are now set for Friday, Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m..; Saturday, Oct. 23, at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, Oct. 24, at 2 p.m.; Friday, Oct. 29 at 2 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 30, at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Oct. 31, at 2 p.m.

“I want your fear. For your fear, like a current, rushes through your body,” the titular character, Dracula, states. “Your fear makes your heart pound, it renders your veins rich and full. Your fear hemorrhages deliciously within you.”

The new adaptation restores the suspense and seduction of of Bram Stoker’s classic novel to the stage. As County Dracula begins to exert his will upon the residents of London, they try to piece together the clues of his appearances – in a valiant attempt to save themselves from a hideous fate. Rich with both humor and horror, this play paints a wickedly theatrical picture of Stoker’s famous vampire.

Parental guidance is suggested as the play references blood, gore and adult content.

Tickets are $14 for general admission and $12 for seniors and military service members.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance at tennesseevalleytheatre.com.
