A Vampire Tale Revamped

If you’re looking for a theatrical way to celebrate the year’s spookiest holiday, we’re happy to inform you that Scorpius Dance Theatre’s “A Vampire Tale” (previously scheduled to run Oct. 13-23) has added one final performance to its run for tomorrow evening, Oct. 29.

Experience this popular, dark and sexy tale of lost love and the mysterious creatures of the underworld, then party with the cast and crew at the final show’s after-event.

Complete with elaborate costumes, new characters, live music, a special guest appearance by renowned belly dancer Ava Fleming and visually stunning aerial feats, the Valley’s “Nutcracker of Halloween” has been thrilling crowds this month. The production tells the story of a young and innocent woman who discovers her lost love has joined forces with a crowd of vampires and then struggles to fight her own fascination with the beings and their reckless world.

The display of dark debauchery is performed by 26 talented individuals and choreographed by Lisa Starry. New this year are the costumes designed by Alicia “AK” Klovenas of Culture Revolution Clothing, accompaniment by musician Adam Smith, and an original score by local composer Kristopher Hill. In an exciting twist on traditional dance theater, the audience will even have the ability to choose an alternate ending to the production.

Tickets for the performance and after-party combo are $35 per person and can be purchased by calling the box office. The performance begins at 8 p.m., then join the cast and crew afterward to enjoy hors d’oeuvres, dessert, a cash bar and music.
