THE COUNT WILL RISE AGAIN OR, DRACULA IN DIXIE
by Dennis Snee
Full Length Play, Comedy / 6m, 5f
The Dracula legend goes South in this outrageous spoof featuring the world’s first Yankee vampire, Count Dracula of Pennsylvania. The action takes place on the plantation of Doc Stewart, a proper Southern gentleman physician who runs a kind of halfway house of “recovering politicians and other emotionally disturbed persons.” The trouble starts when Count Dracula moves into nearby Plantation Catfax and encounters plumbing problems. Invited to stay as a house guest with Doc Stewart until they’re cleared up, the Count begins some dirty work of his own. Soon the Doc’s niece, Miss Lucy, and her friend, Miss Mina, begin experiencing anemia, general poor health, and disturbing dreams featuring an ominous figure who “looks like Mick Jagger!” All the ingredients for a fast and furious farce of wild laughter and screaming action!
Auditions are for ages 20 -50. Some older than 50 may be considered.
Auditions will be a cold read and the cast will consist of the following roles:
MAID – Young woman in her twenties
ROSE – Middle-aged Southern belle, Doc’s sister-in-law
DOC – Middle-aged Southern gentleman and physician
BUTLER – Young man, in his twenties
RENFIELD – Deranged son of the Confederacy
DRACULA – A middle-aged Northern smoothie, dangerous
BOBBY JOE – A young attorney, Lucy’s fiancé
