There will be a comic production of Dracula by Hambledon Productions as below:


Written and Performed by John Hewer

Directed by Bruce Knight

Whitby, England, 1897. What kept you?   A haunting, paranormal force has gripped the town. The young Lucy Westenra is taken ill and psychiatrist Dr. Seward calls on his mentor Professor Van Helsing to advise. The Professor has a perplexing diagnosis – Lucy carries all the symptoms of a vampire’s latest victim.  

So begins a frenzied stab at trying to uncloak Count Dracula as the vampire in their midst. Sadly, it gets quite midsty in Whitby at times…

Bram Stoker’s immortal horror story is given an affectionate lampooning in this physical, riotous comedy. Now, it is truly horrific.


Performed at Cleethorpes Library on Wednesday 9th October 2019 at 19:30. Tickets £8 or £28 for four. Unforunately this show will not finish in time for the last Barton Line train.


Also performed at Barton Joseph Wright Hall on Wednesday 30th October 2019 at 19:30. Tickets £8 or £28 for four. I am advised that the show is expected to last approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes and is targetted to end around 21:15, thus finishing in good time for the 22:02 Barton Line train for all stations to Cleethorpes except New Clee.

Having attended the Cleethorpes showing of this production, I would say it will likely be a little tight for people to get back to the railway station. However, I would say it is a most excellent, thoroughly entertaining show.
