Picketwire to hold auditions for “Dracula”

This Halloween season, the Picketwire Center for Performing and Visual Arts will be bringing to life Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Auditions will be held on August 30th and 31st at 7:00 pm at the Picketwire Center, located at 802 San Juan in La Junta. The cast consists of six men and four women, with some flexibility in casting. Audition goers should expect to read from selections of the script which will be provided.

In this chilling adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic horror story, the mysterious Count Dracula appears in the streets of London. Wherever he appears madness, illness and death are sure to follow.  Join the residents of London, as they try to piece together the clues of his appearance, in a valiant attempt to save themselves from a hideous fate. Rich in both horror and humor, this play paints a wickedly theatrical picture of Stoker’s famous vampire. Performance dates for Dracula are set for October 25th, 26th and 27th at 7:30 p.m. For more information visit picketwireplayers.org or call 384-8320.
