A fifteen-member orchestra and more than twenty performers from the Las Vegas Strip will donate their time and talent to bring Dracula - A New Musical to the stage at the College of Southern Nevada's Nicholas J. Horn Theatre .
Carmen Yurich directs the unique musical written by Michael Lazar and Richard Oberacker, which he describes as an "ear movie." The score, comprised of 22 songs, is highly visual and fills the imagination with pictures and movement. The foundation of a concert reading is to suggest the text rather than literally show an entire staging of it. The audience's imagination will let their mind's eye take them on the journey.
The shows will benefit the CSN Performing Arts Center and Family Promise of Las Vegas. Both non-profit organizations share the mission of a desire to build a stronger community and improve the quality of life for area residents.
