Here are some descriptions of the characters in the script for Count Dracula by Ted Tiller, which calls for two females and seven men.
Please remember that when ages are given, that does NOT mean an actual phyiscal age. It means the approximate age an actor can appear onstage with the proper make-up, costumes, etc.
TWO FEMALE ROLES
Mina: Early or mid 20s. Beautifully dressed. Gentle, warm-hearted, quick to respond to others’ needs, but her strange malady has made her listless, inattentive and oddly remote. During the play, she falls under Count Dracula’s power and her personality changes.
Sybil Seward: Late 40s. Dr. Seward’s spinster sister, addle-pated, occasionally detached from reality and harmlessly touched in the head.
SEVEN MALE ROLES
Hennessey: Early 30s, chief attendant at Dr. Seward’s asylum. He is earnest, trim, hard working and pleasant.
Wesley: Asylum attendant, younger than Hennessey. Pleasant nature, an easy smile, and a little brash but never rude.
Dr. Arthur Seward: Mid 50s. Essentially serious and straightforward, he is capable of quiet, unexpected humor.
Renfield: A schizophrenic inmate of indeterminate age, small stature and cadaverous complexion. Can be in his late 20s to early 30s. Vacillates instantly from lunatic ravings to perfectly rational conversation.
Jonathan Harker: Late 20s; at most early 30s. He is likable, outgoing, well heeled, well dressed, successful architect. During a fight, his shirt is off and he is all but stripped to the waist.
Count Dracula: His age is hard to determine, perhaps a distinguished 30. His countenance is arresting, lupine, cruel and coldly handsome.
Heinrich Van Helsing: In his 50s, a few years older than Dr. Seward. Dedicated scientist and a genial man except when crossed over an issue he deems important.
