About the Show

Written by two former Minneapolis Public School teachers; book and lyrics by Daniel R. Krueger and music by Elwood "Woody" Jay Johnson. Originally the show was produced at Roosevelt High School in the 1980's. The story stays true to the original version of Dracula, which is set in the Victorian Era Transylvania and London, England. The songs are enchanting, hilarious, and hauntingly beautiful. In addition, the story will scare you right out of your seat. Tell everyone you know to see this Minneapolis original musical!
