DRACULA’S GOES DISCO IN THEIR BRAND NEW SHOW RETRO VAMPT
Appearing in Retro Vampt is like being in a riotous time machine to the fabulously funky ’70s for Dracula’s newbie Danielle Glanville
It’s big, it’s bold and it’s very much on trend ... everybody’s favourite vaudeville vampire haunt is getting a psychedelic makeover.
Inspired by the 1970s, Dracula’s new show Retro
Vampt is bringing back the funk in the form of big hair, spandex flares and disco hits.
“We decided to tap into this amazing decade of funky music, flashy fashion and hairy culture,” says director Haydie Newman.
“The show keeps Dracula’s signature razor-edge comedy, unexpected novelty acts and off-the-dial moments of insanity. It’s a real flashback experience with a dark twist.”
The show features Brandon Iniadewar as aerial flying DJ Diva, FrenchCanadian Boiladores circus performer Sarah Louis-Jean and the return of favourites Rudi Tester, Richard Macionis and Dave Kume.
Local performer and Dracula’s newbie Danielle Glanville says the show perfectly captures the magic of the 1970s.
“It celebrates the music, the vibe, the humour ... it’s like a time machine,” she says.
The former X-Factor contestant, who sings, dances and nails comedy in the show, says since she was a teenager it’s been a dream to join the Dracula’s cast.
“I am in awe that I got the opportunity,” she says.
Danielle fondly remembers her first experience at the famous Broadbeach cabaret haunt many moons ago.
“I remember the first time was when I was 18 and I was blown away,” she says.
Most at home on stage, Danielle – who used to be in a rock band – says she gets her kicks from live performances.
“I love the stage and interacting with crowds,” she says.
“Draculas’s is all about interaction – using the energy from the crowd, and that’s what I love the most.”
