THE KING'S HORSES (Drama)
By David L. Paterson
Directed by Edie L. Norlin

Starring

Elena Fruechtnicht
Erin Hedrick
Zac Marquart and
Ellie Unger as Mrs. Hahn

Story: Carter, a carpenter with a mysterious past, steps into unknown territory when he accepts a job from Cassie, a graduate of the same high school. Cassie is overseeing the recovery of her older sister Hannah, who was savagely beaten and thrown into a ditch. This random act of violence has created a surreal scene of sibling rivalry around Carter, who is flattered by the attention but knows trouble when he sees it. As Hannah physically improves, her competitive interest in Carter grows. Old resentments, including how each sister handled the illness and recent death of their mother, further antagonize the sisters, to the detriment of all. Sparkling humor punctuates the sharply drawn characterizations.

DRACULA
The Vampire Play in three acts by Hamilton Deane and John L. Balderson
From the novel by Bram Stoker
Directed by Edie L. Norlin

This is one of the great mystery thrillers. Lucy Seward, whose father is the doctor in charge of an English sanitorium, has been attacked by some mysterious illness. Dr. Van Helsing, a specialist, believes that the girl is the victim of a vampire, a sort of ghost that goes about at night sucking blood from its victims. The vampire is at last found to be a certain Count Dracula, whose ghost is at last laid to rest in a striking and novel manner. The play is intended for all who love thrills in the theater.

Audition dates for 6M, 2W
