Dracula's Ship Auditions
Tuesday, August 22, 2023

The McCook Community College Theater department will host auditions for “Dracula’s Ship” Aug. 31 through Sept. 2.

“Dracula’s Ship” is a new play written by Mark Hardiman, theater instructor at MCC. Inspired by Bram Stoker’s original text, it is the story of a crew that discovers vampires aboard their ship and the crew’s subsequent struggle to survive.

The play will include original characters as well as new ones.

Auditions will be from 6-8 p.m. each night in the Weeth Theater in Tipton Hall. This includes movement exercises and reading from selected texts.

The production will be Oct. 28-29. Rehearsals will be at 6:30 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

There are roles for young men and women. Those interested in backstage duties, stage management or assisting should attend auditions for a brief discussion with the director.

“We are also interested in musicians or actor/musicians,” said Hardiman.

Questions about the play or about scheduling an alternate time to audition can be directed to Hardiman at or (308) 345-8173.
