In October 1997 the Moving Poets presented their first public prodution: the world premiere of Dracula, a dark and sensuous tale of lust, longing and decay. It was inspired by Bram Stoker's original novel and the historical Dracula, Vlad Tepes, written by Chuck Sullivan. This well-recognized event was the first one to be held at the historic Carolina Theater in over 30 years. Dracula was reincarnated in 1998, 2000, and 2004. It will come to life once again this October.
