     The Bardstown Community Theatre has a new take on the Dracula legend.

    “The Count Will Rise Again or Dracula in Dixie” will be performed at the Bardstown/Nelson County Civic Center.

    The comedy horror spoof revamps the classic tale by introducing the villainous Count Dracula as a Yankee vampire from Pennsylvania.

    The action takes place on the plantation of Doc Stewart, a proper Southern gentleman physician who runs a kind of halfway house of “recovering politicians and other emotionally disturbed persons.”
