The cast of "ReVamp: A Bloody Funny Musical", a new Comedy Vampire Musical are looking forward to getting back to work after Covid 19 interrupted their rehearsal schedule last year. But the show, which has been described as Wales' answer to The Rocky Horror Show, has lost the actor playing one of it's lead characters, Professor Caradino. And so the search is now on for an actor to take on the Role.
Script-Writer, and lyricist, Dave Benjamin, of Neath, Describes ReVamp as Theatre-Burlesque in style - a humorous homage to the Hammer and Universal Studios classic horror movies. ReVamp is filled with melodic rock numbers such as "Transylvania'', "A Vampire's Kiss", and "Too Long in Hell" - the music for which has been written by the composer partnership of Ben Baljak and Maria Owen, also of Neath.
The actor playing Caradino (He/Him) will need a strong rock voice - We are looking for an age range of between 30 & 50; height would need to be 5 feet 9" or over.

ABOUT REVAMP: A BLOODY FUNNY MUSICAL
ReVamp: A Bloody Funny Musical is a Brand New Musical from the pens and keyboards of Dave Benjamin (Book & Lyrics) and the composer partnership of Ben Baljak & Maria Owen (Music).
It is a comedy rock musical which is being described as Wales' answer to the Rocky Horror Show, and concerns two factions of very different vampires:
The first of these factions is led by Professor Caradino, a gentleman vampire (formerly known as Abraham Van Helsing). He is close to finding the cure to vampirism. All the professor needs are the genes culled from two certain young adults: Laura Lycan, a successful London burlesque artiste, and a descendant of the last British Werewolf; and Harry Harkerson an influencer and internet video blogger, who happens to be a descendant of Mina Harker, the final victim of Lord Vlad Dracule. Caradino plans to lure them to his castle in the Carpathian Mountains via Darkestlav, a small town at the foot of the Mountains, and have them fall in love - for it is necessary for Laura and Harry to get very very physical with each other for these particular genes to mutate.
The members of the opposing faction of vampires, known as the Cult of Vlad, are longing to see the resurrection of Vlad Dracule, Lord Impaler. The Cult's High Priestess, the Lady Agrafina, is close to making this happen. She has a spy in Caradino's castle, and is romantically grooming Carmila Bollockoff, the Land-lady of the Little Inn in Darkestlav, whose husband, Ripper, is Mayor of the town.
When these two groups collide, things get bloody awkward!
ReVamp: A Bloody Funny Musical is Sexy, and Funny; filled with melodic rock songs, and an original script which has taken its influences from British comedy institutions ranging from Monty Python to the Carry On movies. Dave Benjamin describes its style as "Theatre Burlesque", which pays homage to the classic horror movies from the Hammer, and Universal Picture Studios.
ReVamp: A Bloody Funny Musical is a show about Change, a show about Rebirth, a show about Dreams Come True - But more than this, Revamp is a show about LUST!
