Dracula comes to South Yorkshire

Dracula comes to South Yorkshire

AUDIENCES can learn the bloody truth in a new comic re-telling of Dracula.

Dracula: The Bloody Truth aims to expose that the events recorded in 1897 were not fiction at all — but fact. 

This brand new comedy theatre show — coming to Barnsley next weekend — will take audiences on a journey across Europe from the dark and sinister Transylvanian mountains to the awkwardly charming seaside town of Whitby and into the world of the supernatural, educating us all on the perils of dealing with vampires.

Le Navet Bete (Dick Tracy) are committed to creating hilarious theatre shows using engaging and creative storytelling. 

Set shortly after 1897, the show introduces the audience to Professor Abraham Van Helsing educating the world on the actual events of Dracula through his first ever theatre tour which he himself has produced and is in fact starring in.

Expect Professor Van Helsing and the three actors he has commissioned to present this “true” story through the mediums of song, dance, soliloquy, shadow puppets and even some Victorian parlour tricks that will always go exactly as planned — supposedly.

Dracula: The Bloody Truth is at Barnsley’s Civic Theatre on Saturday, May 6, at 7pm. 

Tickets are £10 (£8 for concessions).
