Readers Theater welcomes the public to join in a reading of “Dracula” by Hamilton Deane and John L. Balderston on Thursday, May 15 at 7:00pm in the Peter White Public Library Shiras Room.
The evening’s script is the 1924 stage play as adapted from the novel by Bram Stoker, the first adaptation of the novel authorized by Stoker's widow and which has influenced many subsequent adaptations.
The American stage production starred Bela Lugosi in his first major English-speaking role, with Edward Van Sloan as Van Helsing. Both actors reprised their roles in the 1931 film version, which drew on the Deane-Balderston play.
Readers Theater is a group of adults, who are interested in drama and are willing and able to read a scripted role. They meet on the third Thursday of each month to read plays for enjoyment. New readers are always welcome.
