The Bluegrass Players Announce Rescheduled Auditions for “Dracula: The Old World”

BEREA, KY – The Bluegrass Players, a resident acting troupe at The Spotlight Playhouse, are excited to announce the rescheduled auditions for their world premiere production of “Dracula: The Old World.”

The auditions will now take place on August 20th at 7:30 pm at The Spotlight Playhouse, located at 214 Richmond Road in Berea, KY. The previously scheduled date of August 6th will remain available for any actors unable to attend on the 20th, but the 20th is now considered the proper date for auditions. Most actors intending to audition should have the 20th available, as it was a previously scheduled Dracula rehearsal date.

The decision to move the auditions is due to the script running behind schedule, which has not allowed time for proper advertising. Additionally, the next few weeks will be dedicated to music production, an essential element for the playwright Chad Hembree. While “Dracula: The Old World” is not a musical, the background music and scene changes are integral to the play.

A full list of characters will be released next week, providing an exciting opportunity for actors to be part of this world-premiere production.

The Bluegrass Players, as a resident troupe at The Spotlight Playhouse, contribute to the rich theatrical tradition of the Playhouse, which produces over 200 performances each year. With two theaters and 13,000 square feet of performance space, The Spotlight Playhouse is a hub for performing arts in Berea, KY.
