About DRACULA, NIGHTMARE OF THE DEAD, an original adaptation of the classic 1897 Bram Stoker text:

A female van Helsing, a comic look at Victorian mores, a recreation of the novel’s sweep, and a
disturbing reflection on the relationship between sex and death, distinguish this adaptation of the
Victorian classic.
The play opens in a graveyard. Tonight, those who lived the tale of DRACULA, return from the dead to
tell us their story. Using simple props, banners, and the techniques of epic theatre, actors assume
multiple roles and whisk us from the port at Whitby, to the Transylvanian Castle, Dr. Seward’s asylum, a
crypt, a Romanian convent, a ghost ship, and the finest homes in London…

Performances at Sid Williams Theatre, Oct 2-6, 2024.
Rehearsals July-Oct, except holiday weekends, 2-3 times a week.

North Island Zone Festival 2024

Directed by Annie Smith


North Island Zone Festival
Friday May 24th at 7:30pm at the Capitol Theatre in Port Alberni.




And Up They Flew, by Martha Ross, was written and performed in Toronto in 2007. It was published in 2009, and CLT Director, Annie Smith, directed a production of the play in 2010 in Grande Prairie, Alberta. Annie says, “I fell in love with the play because it is both zany and heartfelt. Seven mismatched characters meet up for a weekend in a British country manor in 1936. There are rumblings of war in Europe-an uncertain time that presages our own. It is a British Farce, with comings and goings in the middle of the night, a séance, characters trying desperately to find a place to have a clandestine affair, a mad inventor, a shell-shocked WWI veteran, a woman pilot wanting to fly solo across the Atlantic, a 95 year old woman who runs away to be with her true love, and a maid who isn’t a maid. It is fun and entertaining. In this ensemble play where all the characters are equally important, actors are guaranteed to have a good workout!”
