Looking hail and hearty - and unsuspicious, Lewisburg Mayor John Manchester was the first to step up to prove he was not “a bloodless politician,” as gorgeously costumed “vampires” consider draining him. By the end of the day 15 donors had participated in the blood drive held on Oct. 21, benefiting the American Red Cross hosted by Greenbrier Valley Theatre in honor of Dracula: A Rock Opera. On hand (or neck) was Scott Sowinski portraying Dracula; in the role of Lucy Westenra is Hannah McGinley; Erin Whitcomb portrays Dracula’s primary prey Mina Morris; and Haley Burns is in the role of Dracula’s first wife.
