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.

Once a date is agreed upon then use this link to purchase your ticket

Or call[masked], Monday-Friday; 10a.m.-3 p.m.

    Really enjoyed this. The actors did a good job and the weather held off for the most part during the hike. Thans for recommending this Tracy. I will definitely check out these theater hikes again in the future.

    Hey guys I posted this a while back but I'm not going to be able to make it. M.O. is an organizer of two other groups who will also be there. Since the Arboretum has already designated a meeting place (Thornhill Shelter Parking Lot 21) and I spoke with M.O. privately about having those of you going to connect with her, please go see this. I'm really sorry I have to miss it so go enjoy and report back, have fun!

    Tracy, do you happen to know if the tickets for this sell out fast? I posted this for my groups too, but I haven't bought my ticket yet. I wasn't sure how soon I should tell them to buy tickets as well.

      I don't. Now that we're getting into Sep I'd say don't wait much longer than mid month

    My apologies on the delay, new date is now October 12th.

    I will be adjusting the date on this event as I have a subscription to the Lifeline Theater for the '13-'14 season. I'm supposed to see their first presentation The Killer Angels that night & I wanted to extend the invitation out to everyone to see that as well. It's a Civil War story, literally, set in 1863. So heads up, the new date for this will probably be the following week on the 12th.

    I love the Mortem Arboretum, and this sounds really cool. I haven't been there since last year.
