Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand


Wednesday 12th-Saturday 15th June 2019

Originally staged in the UK, this Le Navet Bete critically-acclaimed production is now being presented by the Nelson Repertory Theatre. Directed by local theatre legend Hugh Neill (One Man, Two Guvnors, Hound of the Baskervilles), this fast-paced and innovative comedy is now having its New Zealand premiere in Nelson at the Theatre Royal!

Taking audiences on a journey across Europe from the dark and sinister Transylvanian mountains to the awkwardly charming seaside town of Whitby, the frantic Professor Van Helsing and his three hapless actors try to stage a life-changing, factual theatrical production showing the events of Dracula. Will they pull it off? It’s highly unlikely!

With four actors playing over 30 characters, you’ll see sensational slapstick, frantic costume changes and airborne props, all strung together with clever dialogue and hilarious wordplay.

‘Dracula – The Bloody Truth’ is a comedy to sink your teeth into!

*Note: Gothic/horror themes. Parental Guidance advised. 13+ recommended.
