Theatre on the Road presents Dracula in Widow Jane Mine
October 2 @ 3:00 pm
Theatre on the Road, a traveling company based in Rosendale, will produce and stage Dracula on Friday, September 30 at 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, October 1 and 2 at 3 p.m. at the Widow Jane Mine in Rosendale. From the Bram Stoker novel, this is the original Broadway production that premiered in 1927 and was revised in 1997 starring Frank Langella.
Director Frank Marquette describes the play as follows: “Lucy, whose father is in charge of an English asylum, has been attacked by a mysterious illness. Dr. Van Helsing believes Lucy is the victim of a vampire – a certain Count Dracula. Renfield, an inmate, suffers from delusions and is under the spell of the Count. Will he be found and finally laid to rest?”
The cast features a roster of actors all of whom live and work in the Hudson Valley area of New York. They include David Smilow as Dracula, Nanette Ayers as Van Helsing, Zach Gibson as Jonathan Harker, Dan Anderson as Dr. Seward, David Britton as Renfield, Caitlin Connelly as Lucy, Ellen Pavloff as Miss Wells and Frank Marquette as Butterworth. John Piergiorgi will provide sound effects and lighting and Sue Regan will stage manage. Kristen Marquette, Theatre on the Road’s co-owner, will provide costumes and styling.
