In desperation, her father, Dr. Seward, sends for his old mentor, Professor Van Helsing, for help. Van Helsing determines a vampire is the cause, and the likeliest suspect settles on a patient of Seward's named Renfield. But as he, Seward and Lucy's fiancé, Jonathon Harker, delve deeper, a newly arrived neighbor and friend of the Sewards, Count Dracula, becomes the focus of their hunt. They must find and destroy him before he kills Lucy and makes her one of his kind. This version is suitable for all ages.

A Streetcar Named Desire

The play reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche du Bois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject—so far as possible—the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores. The pressure brought to bear upon her by her sister is intensified by the earthy and extremely "normal" young husband of the latter, leading to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness.
