This mythical story, where good conquers evil, unfolds in two acts. In the opening scene, we find ourselves at a Fall harvest celebration held by the locals of a small eastern European village. Food, dancing, and love make for a wonderful introduction to what soon becomes a battle for the soul of the beautiful young maiden, Aurelia. After winning her heart and asking her father’s blessing, the handsome Marius seals his betrothed Aurelia with a necklace and jeweled crucifix. Our happy couple is soon confronted by a strange visitor to their happy village who will test even the strongest bonds of love and faith. This stranger becomes intent on having Aurelia for himself and enlists the help of his minion, Ratcliff, to steal her away. Dark forces loom as creatures of the night dance their evil way into the heart of this tale of horror. At the peak of act one, the true nature of their uninvited guest is revealed as a spell-bound Aurelia is swept off of her feet by this un-dead creature, Count Dracula.
In the second act, the brave Marius must fight his way through the dark lord’s castle and fight for the life of his bride to be, as well as his own. In the opening scene, we find that his is not the only bride found in Dracula’s castle. Dracula’s harem of un-dead brides, led by the evil Marcela, played by LBT company members Lauren Hunter in the Friday and Saturday evening performances and by Mikaela Seale on Saturday afternoon, will fight with supernatural power to please their master and rid the castle of this mortal menace. Will Marius prevail and save his true love from certain eternal doom, or will evil rule the night? Come to the performance and find out for yourself, if you dare!
A special “Bridal” workshop will be held on Saturday, Oct. 13, 12:30 p.m. prior to the matinee. During the workshop children will be given a bridal veil or Dracula’s cape and dance on the stage with LBT dancers. Get into the Halloween spirit by donning your costume and watching this spooktacular performance!
