The Count

A Northfield Middle School Production

In spring of 2020, the Northfield Middle School production of The Count, an adaptation of Dracula, made it all the way to its opening date of Friday, March 13 when, like so many things, it was cancelled when the COVID-19 virus struck.
My students recently completed an audio-only ZOOM recording of a revised version of the show, presented here for your listening enjoyment!
–Russ Boyington, Theater Advisor for the Northfield Middle School
THE COUNT is a retelling of a famous vampire story. Englishman Jonathan Harker has traveled on business to beautiful, but eerie, Carpathia, in eastern Europe. There, he meets with a certain strange and wealthy nobleman who wishes to purchase property in London in order to move there. Only when it may be too late does Mr. Harker realize that the Count's reasons for taking up residence in England may not be for a change of scenery at all, but to feast on London residents!
