"All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts"

As night falls upon the campus at XLRI, the shadows of the neighboring steel plant loom ominously on the horizon and the smoke wafting from its chimney colors the sky the shade of crimson. It is then the inhabitants of this b-school stir from within the classrooms. It is then that the creative beast within them looks for an outlet, a place where it can feed its soul. And upon these crimson nights, their souls find sustenance at the house of DRACULA.

Dracula, or the "Dramatics and Cultural Association of XLRI" (as muggles call it) is home to every soul whose heart beats faster on a stage, whose mind sharpens itself on a book and tongues that speak fluently the language of sarcasm.

Dracula produces multiple theatrical productions a year, hosts debates (parliamentary and whimsy), and is the origin of the institute's Dance Team and Literary activities. This year Dracula is cranking it up several notches with a host of new activities like the Quizzing League, JAM Nights, Juniors Night and the first ever edition of the Dracula Literary Magazine on the cards.

The corridors of XLRI has housed many a poet or author, the stage at Tata Audi played host to an actor or a danseuse or seated crowds listening in rapture to fiery speeches.

So if artistry runs in your blood, the house of Dracula welcomes you with open fangs...
