Pavilion Spotlight: Dracula, blood drive coming to DTSF

A unique hybrid form of audio theater and innovative use of technology.

Dracula is coming to the Washington Pavilion February 9th at 7:30 p.m.

"Stage is set like a radio studio. A look into how things were done on old radio shows in the 1920's. Telling the classic show of Dracula, which was really the first vampire we've heard of in the late 1800s," HPAC director TJ Polzin said.

In Charles Morey’s acclaimed adaptation, Count Dracula slips quietly into Victorian London with a cargo of his native Transylvanian soil, necessary for rest between his victims. The city seems helpless against his frightful power, and only one man, the smart and resourceful Dr. Van Helsing, can stop the carnage. But to do this, he must uncover the vampire's lair and pierce Dracula’s heart with a wooden stake- setting up an epic confrontation of good vs evil. This gothic horror is a classic for all time and has spawned hundreds of spin-offs in popular culture from “Twilight” to “True Blood.”

This event is also being held ahead of Valentine's Day in conjunction with the Community Blood Drive's blood mobile on Saturday January 30th. Visit the Washington Pavilion between 9:30 a.m. and noon to give blood, help people right here in the community and get discounted tickets to the show.
