NMSU THEATRE ARTS PRESENTS "DRACULA"


ico State University's Department of Theatre Arts and the American Southwest Theatre Company will present Steven Dietz's adaptation of "Dracula" through May 7 at the Hershel Zohn Theatre. "Dracula" is the final production of the season.

Steven Dietz's sexy, scary version of "Dracula" brings all the thrills of Bram Stoker's classic horror story to life on stage as the play follows Dr. Van Helsing's quest to solve the mystery behind the illness of Lucy Seward, drawing characters and the audience into the chilling world of the vampire.

Silent auctions and door prize drawings will be held before all performances, and the first 50 attendees will receive complimentary vampire teeth to enhance their "Dracula" experience. Tickets are $8-$13, depending on performance time and date. For more information call the ASTC box office at (505) 646-4515 or (800) 646-ASTC.
