The Hamilton Operatic Society cast of Dracula took rehearsals to a new vein this week when they gave - rather than sucked - blood at the New Zealand Blood Service.
Getting into character were Will Collin, Rachel Clarke, Mary Rinaldi and Hannah Grant who will take their place in the William McNulty gothic version of Dracula.
The operatic production in conjunction with Carving In Ice, will feature loads of blood, explosions and even a live rat when it takes to The Meteor stage from August 29 - September 8.
