It’s easy to draw the connection between blood and Dracula.
That’s why blood donation came to mind for staff at the Peterborough Theatre Guild as they prepared their upcoming play Dracula.
The guild is producing the play from Sept. 22 to Oct. 8.
But before it gets underway, the guild is encouraging citizens to donate blood at Canadian Blood Services on George Street on Sept. 9 between 8 a.m. and noon.
Donors that day will receive a complimentary ticket to Dracula, to be used the day before the show officially opens. The preview show is on Sept. 21, starting at 8 p.m.
If a resident is disqualified from donating that day, not to worry, you’ll still get a ticket just for trying.
Tracy Magee-Graham, guild stage manager, said Dracula isn’t typically something the guild would produce.
But this season, the guild’s line up is much scarier and spookier than usual.
Other upcoming plays include The Drowning Girls, The Addams Family and Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune.
Magee-Graham said the reason for the change from serene to spooky plays was to try to attract a younger audience, such as college and university students. Yet there’s still some of the former this season too.
Dracula was written by Stephen Dietz and will be directed by John Lunma, with Karen Workman as production manager.
It’s based on the traditional story of Dracula, but its steam punk costumes and props give it a different feel. (Steam punk is an art form full of mechanical elements in the design, such as gears).
Donors to Canadian Blood Services on Sept. 9 will get a taste of the play when Dracula and a few other cast members make an appearance.
NOTE: To book an appointment to donate blood, visit the Canadian Blood Services website at http://www.blood.ca
