GREENFIELD — It’s not Twilight. Let’s just clear that up straight away.
The Greenfield-Central High School drama club might be drawing on the popularity of vampires with its upcoming production of “Dracula” this weekend, but sparkly vamps and drippy romance, this show is not.
It’s a tale with an air of mystery, a nod to Bram Stoker’s classic novel, and – thanks to schedule-shifting weather this winter – a whole lot of hard work.
The small cast of 12 students – not to mention its large crew of backstage counterparts – has been working feverishly to make up for lost time after countless snow days interrupted the show’s rehearsal time.
Director Ted Jacobs said the cast and crew have risen to the occasion to make up for lost time.
