n a remote region in Transylvania, stories are told of the vampire: an undead creature who emerges from his coffin only at night--and, as legend has it, can transform himself into a bat or even a wolf. But the residents of Doctor John Seward’s sanatorium and manor in England know that this “vampire” is only a superstition…or is it? Strange things are happening at the Seward house--his niece, Lucy, is suffering from a mysterious loss of blood, a patient of his has been acting up more than usual, and a friend returning from Transylvania has hallucinations of “wolves, blood, and vampires.” Add to that, a strange man by the name of Count Dracula has moved into the adjoining estate, bringing with him coffins filled with his native soil. Wolves howling at night, puncture wounds on Lucy’s neck,

and a man who only emerges at night… is it possible the legend of the vampire is no legend at all? This October, Debut Theatre Company celebrates its 30th anniversary with the play that began Debut: Bram Stoker’s Dracula, which defined much of modern vampire lore and cemented the vampire’s place in the horror genre. Dracula has become a classic for Debut, too—first performed in 1991 with the very first Players and then every ten years since. What makes this show worth doing four times? As director Lee OsterhoutKaplan says, “Dracula is the show where kids first get bitten by the theatre bug.” It’s inspired many young performers who would go on to become part of Debut Players and carry on the magic of performing. Now, the Debut Players of 2021 are bringing Dracula to life once more, not
only through compelling characters, but also through historically accurate sets and costumes, well-researched and imaginatively created props and effects, and more. For example, Leo Cheng (age 14), who plays Jonathan Harker, is head of music and is composing piano music to underscore the show, and Miles Crossan (age 15), who plays Professor Van Helsing, is co-head of set, and is choreographing fight scenes. This October, spend an evening immersed in Victorian England with the residents of the Seward manor as they delve into the darkness of man’s mind and battle against the curse of the vampire. Night unto night, the Debut Theatre Company will bring all the wonder, suspense, and magic of Dracula to the stage. A tale suitable for all ages, Dracula offers both drama and comedy fun for the whole family!

About Debut Players
arking its 30th season, Debut Theatre Company (DTC) presents classic stories performed by young actors for family audiences. Debut Players–DTC’s signature troupe–is a regionally-based and auditioned group of up to 18 young actors between the ages of 10 and 17 years from eight different area schools. Brought together by their love for the stage, Debut Players bring age-appropriate productions to life for regional audiences. True to the troupe structure, these emerging actors are responsible for every aspect of this production: from sets, costumes and publicity to lights, sound, special effects, and acting!
o-founded in 1991 by siblings Lee OsterhoutKaplan and Gregg Osterhout, Debut Theatre Company is based in Fort Collins. It is Northern Colorado’s only troupe structured, non-profit, young person’s theatre school and acting company. In addition, it is the only hands-on, year-round, professional children’s theatre in Colorado. DTC offers troupes, classes, and workshops for a wide range of ages, talents and interest levels. DTC trains creative young people in the theater arts and provides community productions for the benefit of regional adults and children. Producing a live performance is more than just acting; the show becomes a team effort that the members can take pride in. “Theatre for young people, by young people” is more than just our motto, according to Artistic Director Kaplan. Through “hands-on” experiences, the Debut founders believe that learning is best done by doing and that quality arises through pride of ownership and participation. The actors don’t just act. They participate in the design and construction of everything from posters to costumes to sets. Debut’s members are Debut! “Because the production of a play embodies the skills a person needs to face life’s challenges – dedication, creativity, confidence, desire and responsibility – we believe Debut’s kind of encouragement is important to the future success of our members,” says Kaplan. Debut Players–DTC’s signature troupe is one of only three professional troupe structured children’s theatre arts companies found between California and Minnesota. By audition, Debut Players is up to 18 talented young people between the ages of 10 and 17. Recent productions include: East of the Sun West of the Moon, Sarah, Plain & Tall, The Phantom Tollbooth, A Little Princess, Emil & the Detectives, and the acclaimed live radio theatre performances – Vintage Hitchcock & It’s a Wonderful Life.
