The Musical with Bite!
Friday 4 to Saturday 19 May 2012
Get ready to go batty for Vampirette, the new blood-curdlingly hilarious musical comedy, premiering at the Opera House, Manchester next month.
Packed full of fangtastic songs, spooktacular dance routines and loads of laughs, get ready to vamp it up at Vampirette!
This all new production follows Vampi, a young vampire who is determined to be a normal girl!
In this clever comedy the life (and secrets) of a Vampire family in Manchester is revealed as they set about their daily lives.
While Vampi’s brother and parents are contented vampires, she just wants to be ordinary – spend time with friends, fall in love… and have a reflection!
Starring in Vampirette are Over the Rainbow and We Will Rock You’s Lauren Samuels (Vampi), Manchester’s Matthew Rixon (Igor), Caroline Deverill (Countess Zanguina), Jay Worthy (Dr Acula), Adam C Booth (Rudi), Stuart Matthew Price (Andrew Van Helsing) and Norman Bowman (Stanley Pea).
The world’s fascination with Vampires and the undead has never been so prevalent, from cult TV series such as Buffy The Vampire Slayer and True Blood to the phenomenally successful Twilight saga, the public’s thirst for stories of immortals is unquenchable. Vampirette, combines the attraction and fascination with Vampires with fun, laughter and above all great music, in a stunning stage show that includes spectacular vampire flying sequences!
The show includes new takes on classic songs including I’ve Got You Under My Skin, Down At The Club, Come Fly With Me, California Girls, Total Eclipse Of The Heart, Eloise and many more…plus some wicked dance moves.
Writer Jonathan Choat said: “Manchester has such a vibrant entertainment scene now, that it is the perfect place to stage the world premiere of Vampirette which I believe will be a great hit. You will know the songs and you will be singing them for weeks after, and our dancing and special effects are just spectacular ‘’.
