Do you like to be terrified?

Do you like blood? Do you like to be terrified? Do you like to be in a spooky room on a dark night? Then this could be the very thing for you.

Following their sell-out production of Macbeth in 2010, The Pranksters Theatre Company return to the atmospheric space of Guildford Castle’s ancient  Keep with Bram Stoker’s, “Dracula” from Saturday 10th to Saturday 17th November.

A hundred years after the death of Bram Stoker, his novel of the most famous vampire, the Transylvanian Count Dracula has lived on with numerous interpretations through stage and screenThe chilling story begins as soon as you are met at the gates to the Castle Grounds by Dr. John Seward and the warders of his asylum, who will escort you up the winding path to the ancient Castle Keep.

Once inside, expect to meet the inmates of Seward’s asylum before being transported, along with young lawyer Jonathan Harker, across Europe, to confront the enigmatic Count Dracula, whose welcome may not be quite what it seems!

As the night becomes darker, the power of the Nosferatu – the eternal Vampire – draws everyone within its spell:  Dracula’s haunted Brides, the damaged lunatic Renfield and the beautiful Mina and Lucy.

Dare to join them and witness the chilling tale of good versus evil where the more rational men battle to conquer Dracula within his own lair.

“Dracula” will be performed inside Guildford’s Castle Keep 7:30pm nightly, 10th – 17th November, with a special late night performance ending at midnight on Friday 16th November.

Audiences are limited to 45 per night; therefore tickets are in advance only from Guildford Tourist Information Centre, £15 adults (£12 students and children, recommended age 12+)

Audience should assemble at the gate to the Castle Grounds facing the rear of Tunsgate Square to be escorted into the Castle.  Although the venue will be heated, you are advised to dress warmly.

Latecomers cannot be admitted and regrettably the venue is not wheelchair accessible.
