World Premiere
Selected Works 2015

A high camp homage to silent cinema and the ultimate queer hero, The Prince of Darkness. From acclaimed company, Little Ones Theatre (Stephen Nicolazzo, Katie Sfetkidis and Eugyeene Teh) comes a new theatrical event - gothic and erotic with a comic bent. This DRACULA will delve deep into the cinematic history of horror - from Bela Legosi to Gary Oldman, Buster Keaton to Catherine Deneuve, and a soupcan of Nosferatu - and bring it to the stage in all its bawdy desire, and gory glory. With excessive eyeliner. And carnal desire.

Little Ones Theatre much lauded creative team - director Stephen Nicolazzo and designers Eugyeene Teh, Tessa Leigh Wolffenbuttel Pitt and Katie Sfetkidis - will again craft the Company's signature aesthetic of camp, kitsch and heightened visual style, joined by exciting cast of fequent collaborators including Alexandra Aldrich, Zoe Boesen, Catherine Davies, Brigid Gallacher, Amanda McGregor and Janine Watson.

What the critics say on DRACULA

‘Dracula is one part Artuad, one part Annie Sprinkle… It’s an insanely detailed and gloriously sensual piece of theatre.’ - The Australian

‘Director Stephen Nicolazzo​ immerses the performances in atmospheric design: Katie Sfetkidis' lighting, Daniel Nixon's gothic sound, and the coffins and curtains and glittering black astroturf of Eugyeene Teh's​ set.’ - The Age

‘Little Ones are the country’s leading proponents of queer theatre, and they’ve produced a gorgeous and playful piece with Dracula.’ - Time Out

‘The Little Ones Theatre’s winning streak of creating unique theatrical experiences therefore continues here with this production of Dracula.’ - Theatre Press
