"Fire & Blood"
Fannin Performance Hall

Richland College Theatre presents “Fire & Blood,” a new musical by Andy Long and Adam C. Wright. This haunting re-imagining of Bram Stoker's “Dracula” proves that some stories never die. In “Fire & Blood,” the city of New Orleans finds herself rid of the poor in the wake of Katrina. All that remains is an unspoken balance between the city's socialites and its colony of vampires that have long inhabited the French Quarter. When a more powerful presence from an old European bloodline makes the city his new home that balance is quickly thrown out of control. As the fight for power, love, and lust comes to head, one thing is certain ... there will be blood. Recommended for mature audiences. Admission is free.
