    Overview

    Both set in the past and part of our past as the fall show 10 years ago, this one-act version of the Gothic classic tells the complete story of the romantic monster from the Carpathian Mountains near the Borgo Pass. The action is continuous, and the excitement is nonstop after Van Helsing's entrance at the opening. The old professor has come to the aid of his friend and student, Dr. Seward, at Whitby Asylum in England. Mina Murray is suffering from a mysterious ailment which threatens to postpone her marriage to Jonathan Harker. Van Helsing has come fresh from scientific detective work in London investigating a frighteningly similar case. Very soon the beast joins them, and he is most serious about his plans for Mina. But the unholy vampire has met his final match in Van Helsing and friends.  
    Audience and actors meet at the Chautauqua Picnic Shelter and take a moderate hike on the Enchanted Mesa Trail while scenes from the play are performed along the way. Approximate length of the hike is two miles with an elevation gain of 400 feet.
    Audience members are encouraged to bring camping chairs and/or blankets and mats to sit on while watching the scenes. Water, sunscreen and hats are suggested and comfortable walking shoes and weather appropriate clothing are strongly encouraged. In case of inclement weather, the performance will be held under the Chautauqua Picnic Shelter.

    Buy early! Each hike is capped at low numbers and tends to sell out in advance.  Recommended for ages six (6) and older.
