By Scott Martin

Victorian England, 1897, the year of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Sir Henry Irving is the premiere actor/manager of his day, and the productions of Shakespeare in which he stars with Ellen Terry, his lovely leading lady (on and off the stage), at the Lyceum Theatre, are the talk of high society.

But Sir Henry's long-suffering business manager of two decades, Bram Stoker, is desperate to have his idol bring to life the eponymous character of the book he has just written: "Dracula, or, The Undead."

Bram's hopes, passions and setbacks as he struggles to organize a staged reading of "Dracula" set the future course of his life.

Children of the Night, both a melodrama and a comedy, that perfectly captures the feeling of turn-of-the-century theatre, was one of nine original musicals showcased at the first Global Search for New Musicals at the Sherman Theatre in Cardiff, Wales, as part of the International Festival of Musical Theatre, produced by SONY and the BBC.

Scott Martin is the author of Scream Queens - The Musical (published by Samuel French), originally developed as part of Stephen Schwartz's Disney/ASCAP musical theatre workshop; Little Green Men (Kentwood Players); and children's shows for Storybook Theatre at Theatre West. .

The production stars Robert Patteri, Gordon Goodman, Teri Bibb and Gibby Brand; with Melissa Bailey, Ashley Cuellar, Joey D'Auria, Freddie Lara, Amanda Majkrzak, John Racca, Gilmore Rizzo, Alison Robertson, Mark Rohner and Gabrielle Wagner.

Children of the Night premieres Saturday, October 10 at 8PM. Performances continue Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm, until November 1, 2009.
