Count Dracula

by Ted Tiler

October 29, 20, 31, 1981

Hawthorne Junior High School

In a village north of London, there’s a new resident — name of Renfield — at Dr. Seward’s Asylum for the Insane. A foreign count has taken residence in the castle across the valley. Dr. Seward’s ward Mina comes down with a mysterious illness, and Professor Van Helsing is called in to help. The stage is set for Ted Tiller’s witty version of Bram Stoker’s classic story of the suave vampire whose passion is sinking his teeth into the throats of beautiful young women.
