Official description

The classic tale of American playwright Steven Dietz's Dracula, which is known the world over, has been completely re-imagined and transformed by a world-class creative team from London's West End and Broadway into Dracula: Blood Is Life. It will have its global premiere in Bangkok at KBank Siam Pic-Ganesha Theatre on Friday, and runs until March 6.

Hailed as the most terrifying and erotic stage show Thailand has ever seen, the new production by Ewing Entertainment Worldwide, a registered theatre company in the UK and Thailand, features an international and Thai cast.

The show is divided into two rounds. The Royal Shakespeare Company's brightest new star William Belchambers will play Dracula for five exclusive preview performances from Friday to Sunday before Thai singer/actor Hugo Chakrabongse will incarnate the blood-sucking vampire from Feb 16 until March 6. Playing Lucy will be Myra Molloy, the premiere season winner of Thailand's Got Talent.

Showtime is 7.30pm on Thursday and Friday, 2pm and 7.30pm on Saturday and Sunday, and a 2pm matinee on Tuesday and Wednesday for school students only. The gala night on Feb 18 will feature special guest Dacre Stoker, author and filmmaker, the great grandnephew of Irish author Bram Stoker who penned the Gothic horror novel.

The production is directed by renowned theatre director Joe Harmston, who has directed some of the greatest actors in theatre. Set in 1897 but thoroughly contemporary, the production features stunningly unique costume designs by Rachael Forbes, recently commissioned to work on designs for Sarah Brightman's 2015 world tour.

The show is performed in English with Thai subtitles. After Bangkok, it will open in Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and UK and European theatres.


KBank Siam Pic-Ganesha Theatre is on the 7th floor of Siam Square One, Rama I. Ticket prices range from 1,200 to 3,800 baht and can be purchased from the theatre and Thai Ticket Major (visit www.thaiticketmajor.com). Visit www.facebook.com/draculainbangkok or www.thedraculashow.com.
