Theatre goers are in for a spellbinding treat this Halloween as Dracula pays a visit to Wolverhampton.

Cast from the brand new adaption of Dracula

A world premier of a brand new stage adaption, Dracula, will be performed at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre from November 20 until November 24.

The multi sensory performance, which included breath taking illusions and effects, is bought to life in a contemporary, visceral interpretation of Bram Stoker's book which includes all the familiar characters.

Stoker's popular novel, which was first published in 1897, remains one of the most universally iconic novels ever written. The genre defining classic is known all over the world and remains to this day the father of all gothic thrillers.

Since it's publication the tale has since been made into countless radio, TV and Hollywood films, inspiring the recent resurgence in vampire mania and the Twilight movie series- Dracula on stage in therefore a must-see.

Starring Glen Fox as Dracula and Phillip Bretherton as Van Helsing, this show has been completely re-imagined by a world-class creative team from London’s West End and Broadway, audiences will be able to rediscover the story that started them all.

Theatre fans will be whisked to Transylvania, where they'll enter the castle of Count Dracula and his three brides.

The Count, who feeds on the elixir of young blood to look youthful, will take you on a deliciously evil ride as he pursues his victims and encounters Jonathan Harker, Professor Van Helsing and Dr. Seward along the way.

Performances start at 7.30pm each night. Tickets cost £15 per person.
