SAVOY

“Dracula” is melodrama presented in stock with Ben Erway, Myra Hubert and the Savoy Players.

There is no more horrifying horror play “Dracula”, story of a vampire spirit, dead for 600 years, who roams a peaceful countryside leaving terror and moaning victims in his wake.

Ben Erway, as Count Dracula, will be seen in a role entirely different from any in which he has been seen here. Myra Hubert has the only woman part in the play.
