It’s that time again. Halloween is around the corner and the New York Film Academy’s Student Directed Play Series is getting in the spirit of things. This week’s play is “Dracula.”
“Dracula,” famous for introducing the vampire Count of the same name, is an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker. The novel tells the story of Dracula’s attempt to move from Transylvania to England so that he may find new blood and spread the undead curse. The battle between Dracula and a furious group of men and women, led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing, begins and no one is the same after.
Jonas Olsen, Fall 14 BFA, adapted the work for the stage. “I want to do something different, something that’ll make you laugh, cry and scream,” Olsen said. “Who better to help me with that than the epitome of evil, Dracula?”
Dracula will premiere in the Kaminski Theater on October 27th and 28th at 7:30PM and October 29th at 1:30PM.
