Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Ten years after its fringe debut, this show’s still got legs — and fangs.
Winnipeg writer-composer Joseph Aragon’s first musical comedy rises again in an ambitious anniversary production directed by iconic fringer Leith Clark.
When greedy corporate suits make a high-stakes play to open a Dracula-Land theme park in Transylvania, they encounter a sinister ally named Vlad (Ray Padua) and his vampy sidekick Natasha (Mallory James).
Madcap mischief ensues as corporate climber Mary (Lisa Tjaden) falls under Vlad’s spell, forcing her smitten co-worker Bill (Kenneth Jackson) to save her soul — with help from a trio of avenging angels. Standout performances and dead-on sight gags make it a batty blast from the past.
