Join Garland Civic Theatre for the 50th Anniversary Season! Garland Civic Theatre was founded in 1968 and is the oldest community theatre in Dallas County. To celebrate, we are producing a spectacular season of theatre filled with mystery, laughter, music and love.

 

GCT is proud to present “Dracula The Musical” as we continue this anniversary season. Drink deep… and live forever! “Dracula” is a haunting and passionate new musical based on the world-famous novel by Bram Stoker.

 

“Dracula The Musical” is a thrilling drama of suspense and a Gothic romance of dreamlike temptation from the extraordinary team of Christopher Hampton, Don Black and Frank Wildhorn (“Jekyll & Hyde”). Set in Europe at the end of the Victorian Age, the story follows the famed vampire as he lusts for new blood. Jonathan Harker and Mina Murray fall victim to Dracula’s unnatural charm and, along with Doctor Van Helsing, must fight Dracula’s supernatural powers. “Dracula” will enthrall you with its powerful score as it brings the undead to life in this breathtaking musical of unrequited love.

 

The talented cast features Evan Figg as Jonathan Harker, Joshua Hensley as Count Dracula, Stephanie Hall-Roberston as Mina Murray, Brandy Nuttall as Renfield and Belladonna, Russell Sims as Dr. Jack Seward, Maya Ferrer as Lucy Westerna, Jacob Drum as Quincey Morris, Brian Hokanson as Arthur Holmwood, Timothy Turner-Parrish as Professor Van Helsing, Hannah Meagley as Lucretia, and Samantha Masucci as Pandora. The production is directed and designed by Kyle McClaran, music directed by Jeannie Adamson, and stage managed by Brandy Nuttall.
