Dracula - The Final Countdown by Geoff Bamber
RolesMinimum Male roles = 3. Minimum Female roles = 8. Minimum total with doubling = 15. Minimum total without doubling = 35. Chorus.

Run TimeAround 90 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleA comic and melodramatic retelling of Bram Stoker's story as a full-length play for kids. Sets can be relatively simple, but a fair number of props are required - coffins, that sort of thing.
SynopsisSolicitor Jonathan Harker finds himself despatched to Transylvania to sort out a property deal for a mysterious Dr. Acula. On arrival, Harker realises that that he has been the victim of a misprint, but he is so charmed by his welcome that he fails to realise that he has become something of a prisoner. Harker's plight is made more acute by the attentions of the Brides of Dracula, a voracious trio, who appear to have less than honourable intentions. With the improbable assistance of Dracula's servant, Igoretta, Harker escapes and returns to England, where, shortly afterwards, his fiancé finds herself in the company of a mysterious foreign gentleman. Little does she realise what is at stake...
