Jobsite first produced Dracula in 2001, when it ran for 6 weeks and set records for the theater that stood for almost the next 15 years. Two cast members return from that production, one in a new role and the other in the same. Katrina Stevenson, who played Mina in 2001, returns now as Van Helsing while Paul J. Potenza reprises his role as Renfield. Now in the much larger Jaeb Theater, David M. Jenkins returns to direct as does Brian Smallheer as scenic designer.
