October's performance is The Passion of Dracula. All performances at 3pm.
This version of the Dracula legend based on the 1897 Bram Stoker novel is set in the English countryside in 1911 where several village girls have died under mysterious circumstances. Dr. Seward presides over a nearby mental hospital and the locality has acquired a new resident, Count Dracula! A trio of doctors, a young reporter and a stouthearted English lord battle the Count for possession of the lovely heroine. With a dash of Holmesian sleuthing in this Baskerville hound country setting, our heroes save the heroine and dispatch the Count in the traditional manner. "A genuine old fashioned horror thriller." - N.Y. Daily News.
Appropriate for all ages (geared toward teens and young adults, but no inappropriate material).
I will tentatively schedule this for October 5th since this event occurs both Saturday and Sunday throughout the month. If there's a date that works out better than the 5th then so be it. However October is trending towards being a very busy month so if this happens awesome, if not that's all right too.
