The Kentwood Players will present the classic haunting story Dracula, based on the novel by Bram Stoker and dramatized by Hamilton Deane and John L. Baldeston, from Friday, Sept. 10 to Oct. 16 at the Westchester Playhouse.

Performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays at the playhouse, 8301 Hindry Ave. in Westchester.

Dracula is a chilling and spooky tale about a bizarre illness that strikes Lucy Seward, daughter to Dr. Seward, owner of an English sanatorium in the early 1900s. Dr. Seward and Lucy’s fiancé, Jonathan Harker, call in the help of Professor Van Helsing, an expert in the macabre.

Their search for answers leads them deeper and deeper into the terrors of the unknown and cause them to question if a vampire could be the answer to the mystery.

The production is directed by Shawn K. Summerer and produced by Alison Mattiza and Elizabeth Bouton Summerer. Featured in the cast are Samantha Barrios, Marlee Candell, Paul Guay, Ben Lupejkis, Ken MacFarlane, Daniele Manzin, Jeffrey Olin, and Gary Shaw as Dracula.
