No tricks just treats at Leek's Dracula theatre show

A spine-tingling retelling of Count Dracula's story promises nothing but treats for Halloween fans and horror lovers this autumn.

Leek's beautiful Nicholson Museum and Art Gallery is hosting the original stage-play production 'Dracula's Ghost' next month tracking the vampire king from his destruction at the hands of Van Helsing through his many incarnations down the centuries.

Don't Go Into The Cellar Theatre Company is presenting this macabre blend of history and fiction - billed as Victorian theatre with bite - in the Gallery on Saturday 22 October.

Councillor Sybil Ralphs, Leader of the Staffordshire Moorlands District Council and portfolio for arts and culture, said: "The story of Dracula is one that endures and that has captured imaginations for decades so this original re-telling of the Count's story is sure to appeal to wide audience.

"The historic and atmospheric Nicholson Gallery is the ideal venue for such a production and the timing, in the run-up to Halloween, couldn't be better. For those brave enough, it promises to be a tale to really get your teeth into!"

Doors open at 6.30pm and the performance starts at 7pm - be late if you dare! Tickets cost £10 or £8 for students and concessions and the production is not suitable for under 13's.
