Next up in our 20 questions series is Janet Caine. Most Meadow Brook Theatre regulars will remember her from By Jeeves a few years ago and The Rocky Horror Show many years before. This time around she is playing one of Dracula’s three wives in Dracula: A Rock Opera. You’ll have to watch carefully during the show as Janet is playing many other roles as well. Janet brings great character to our stage and we are thrilled to have her “back on the boards!”
Single Tickets for Dracula: A Rock Opera will go on sale September 20th at 10:00 am. Call the Box Office at 248-377-3300 for more ticket information.
