A Red-Blooded Comedy with Bite

3W/ 10M

Approximate Playing Time: 90 minutes

A great comedy for Halloween or whenever you feel like adding a little bite to your season: a Count Dracula bite that is!  It seems Bela, aka “Count Dracula” has made his way from Transylvania to Hollywood where he has finagled his way into the position of “Phlebotomist” at the Sunshine Blood Bank.  The blood bank caters primarily to down-and-out donors selling their blood for wine money; the perfect cover for the blood-sucking vampire.  Bela brings along his assistant, Boris, who lives in the closet to the dismay of Nurse Nightingale who is hired by an exasperated Nurse Fender to assist Bela in drawing blood.  But Bela is intent on taking all the blood and leaves a steady stream of bodies in the alley outside the back door drawing the attention of the local police. When arrogant Doctor Parsan takes over as director, Bela hypnotizes him into believing he is a chicken to the dismay of Nightingale who has fallen for the handsome doctor who is equally enamored with the pretty nurse. Soon everyone succumbs to the lunacy as will your audiences as they laugh along with Bela who is both puzzled and annoyed by the antics of all the “peasants” in America. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
