Get spooked over Halloween weekend when you relive the horror, magic and drama of everybody’s favorite vampire during the International Ballet Theatre’s performance of Dracula, running October 31 – November 2.  This thrilling production is fun and entertaining for audiences of all ages, including children.

This year, Dracula has decided to host a private party for those attending Saturday’s evening performance, which will consist of Act II of the production followed by “Dracula’s Masquerade” party on stage. Those in attendance are invited to come dressed in costume and join the cast for a night of Halloween festivities.
