Dracula comes to life in Banbury

Rehearsals for Dracula at The Mill
Rehearsals for Dracula at The Mill

Get ready to sink your teeth into a thrilling Gothic adventure, as Banbury Cross Players bring the legend of Dracula to life on stage.

There will be a mysterious chill in the air as the nights draw in and performances get under way at The Mill Arts Centre from July 15 - 17.

Whilst the Cross Players promise teeth, a small amount of blood and some slightly risque scenes, they also offer their reassurances to the faint-hearted that the show places emphasis on the adventure rather than the gore.

The stylish stage play was adapted by Jane Thornton and John Godber and follows Professor Van Helsing, Jonathan Harker and Dr Seward as they embark upon a quest to defeat Dracula once and for all.

Bram Stoker’s classic novel was taken from central European folk tales and has since had a huge impact on popular culture, influencing most vampire books and films.

The production runs from July 15 - 17, starting at 7.45pm at The Mill. For tickets, go to www.themillartscentre.co.uk or 01295 279002.
