PREVIEW Performances are a special opportunity to view the production, in it's entirety, while it is still in it's "creative adjustments" phase. The cast and crew will use these performances to adjust lighting, sound, performers timing and while they do that... you see the show at a reduced rate! Although quite rare, it is possible the show may stop in order for the creative team to review certain scenes.
ABOUT THE ALL-DENTIST MUSICAL Occurring every two years, the All-Dentist Musical (ADM) is a public presentation of a musical featuring a cast comprised of Manitoban Dentists. Professional and emerging local artists are engaged to lead the ADM creatively and in production, with funds raised being donated to charitable arts and dental related causes. This years musical's net proceeds will be split between the Manitoba Dental Foundation (MDF) and the Rainbow Stage (RBS) Professional Mentorship Program.
Bloodsuckers! is a musical comedy with book, music, and lyrics by award-winning Manitoba playwright and composer, Joseph Aragon. Joseph is a two-time winner of the Harry Rintoul Memorial Award for Best New Manitoban Play and his musical Bloodless: The Trial of Burke and Hare received a Dora Mavor Moore Award nomination for Outstanding New Musical. We are so proud to be presenting the work of this incredible local talent for this year’s All-Dentist Musical!
The musical is fast paced and filled with campy, cheesy, musical theatre fun, but it isn’t without its dramatic moments either, highlighting Aragon’s ability to write and compose both comedy and drama. The story centers around a group of greedy American theme park developers who travel to Romania to negotiate plans for "Dracula Land" with a Transylvania landholder named Vlad. Singing, dancing, and bloodletting ensue.
