 THEATER: Dracula

Date:Thursday, October 20 (and other dates, see calendar )
Time:07:30 PM
Where:E.M. Pearson Theatre at Concordia University

A mysterious force is at work in the lonely mountains of Transylvania and in London, an unspeakable evil haunting blood and soul. It is the classic tale of the forces of faith and love battling the centuries-old vampire, Count Dracula. First published in 1897, the novel was a best-seller in its day, and its popularity has only grown since, retold hundreds of times in films and books. A retelling of the most popular Gothic horror novel of all time, this production will remain faithful to Bram Stoker’s book while at the same time render it into an exciting theatrical event.
