FOLLOWING their barn-storming production of Sherlock’s Excellent Adventure last month, Bosbury’s All Star Theatre Company are getting their teeth into another big show.

The village theatre group is putting the finishing touches to Dracula — The Bloody Truth, which will have its first showing at Bromyard’s Conquest Theatre on Saturday, October 30.

It will then move to the The Kings Theatre in Gloucester for one-night-only on Friday, November 5, before a triumphant home-coming performance at Bosbury Parish Hall on November 6.

Theatre company director Ben Mowbray said: "Straight off the back of our latest theatrical offering, Sherlock's Excellent Adventure, we didn't want the grass to grow and got straight into the rehearsal room with our next comedy: Dracula — The Bloody Truth! 

“Our talented cast of four have been rehearsing hard for the past three weeks in our rather cold and breezy garage and have still been laughing. 

“The show is full of silliness, including lots of character changes, hundreds of props and hats and headscarves and plenty of drama to keep the audience on their toes.”

Travelling across Europe, from the dark and sinister Transylvania to the seaside town of Whitby, Professor Van Helsing and his three amateur actors stage a life-changing, theatrical production of Dracula… hoping to establish, once and for all, the bloody truth.

The result is a delightfully silly, fast-paced version of Bram Stoker’s novel, with 40 characters played by just four actors.

Tickets are available via the theatre company’s website at or by calling 07742 878329.

In the meantime, there are still two chances to catch the LADS performance of Hobson’s Choice at Ledbury’s Market Theatre tonight and tomorrow (Friday and Saturday, October 22-23).

Harold Brighouse’s classic comedy has been the group’s first performance since the pandemic struck.

The curtain goes up at 7.30pm on both nights and tickets are £11, £8 for students. Pre-booking is essential by visiting or calling 07967 517125.

Meanwhile, in Bromyard, there are three more chances to visit the Little Shop of Horrors at the town’s Conquest Theatre. The show opens at 7.30pm tonight and tomorrow with a matinee performance on Saturday.

Tickets at £15 are available via or by calling 01885 488575.
