Summary about the history of Dracula

Dracula comprises journal entries, letters, and telegrams written by the main characters. It begins with Jonathan Harker, a young English lawyer, as he travels to Transylvania. Harker plans to meet with Count Dracula, a client of his firm, in order to finalize a property transaction. When he arrives in Transylvania, the locals react with terror after he discloses his destination: Castle Dracula. Though this unsettles him slightly, he continues onward. The ominous howling of wolves rings through the air as he arrives at the castle. When Harker meets Dracula, he acknowledges that the man is pale, gaunt, and strange. Harker becomes further concerned when, after Harker cuts himself while shaving, Dracula lunges at his throat. Soon after, Harker is seduced by three female vampires, from whom he barely escapes. He then learns Dracula’s secret—that he is a vampire and survives by drinking human blood. Harker correctly assumes that he is to be the count’s next victim. He attacks the count, but his efforts are unsuccessful. Dracula leaves Harker trapped in the castle and then, along with 50 boxes of dirt, departs for England.

The Darcula Premiere at Mt. View is 12/14/22

This is the first school play I have seen in over 14 years. The stage and the props were masterfully and artistically designed to depict the world of dracula, and every actor put their heart and soul into their performance. Artistically enthralling, mesmerizingly macabre, miraculously Dracula. I imagine it allows people to conect through the designing of the set and through the interaction with eachother as characters on stage. – Mamadou
