DRACULA | UA-PTC CHARTS

Just in time for Halloween, Ballet Arkansas presents a new twist on its wildly popular multimedia infused adaptation of "Dracula." The production is a bold retelling of Bram Stoker's legendary novel and features chilling imagery, edge-of-your-seat choreography, and lots of VAMPIRES! Created in partnership with Cranford Co.

 

**Although modifications have been made, Dracula depicts content, including death, as portrayed within Bram Stoker's novel. Educators and families are encouraged to discuss their comfort level with these themes prior to attending the performance.
