Scorpius’ A VAMPIRE TALE Phoenix
August 9 @ 4:26 am MST
Scorpius Dance Theatre Presents the 14th Season of Annual Fall Haunt
Lisa Starry’s “A Vampire Tale”
Dubbed “The ‘Nutcracker of Halloween,” the yearly haunt is celebrating a return to its roots at the Phoenix Theatre’s Hardes Theatre, the original birthplace of the production. A more intimate venue, Hardes Theatre allows greater interaction with the audience and performers, creating a more engaging experience. Additionally, for the first time in A Vampire Tale’s history, the vampires will rise from their coffins during the day with two special matinee shows.
A Vampire Tale indulges audiences with all the trimmings: dark and sexy drama, quirky and comedic episodes, and visually stunning dance and aerial feats. This popular, sell-out production pre-dates all of the vampire pop-culture and evolves annually to keep fans coming back for more.
A Vampire Tale showcases 17 performers. Gavin Sisson and Nicole Olson return to the stage in there lead roles as the Vampire King and Queen. Martha Hernandez will return for the second year in the role of the Innocent. Also returning, Louis Farber will play the side-splitting narrator role of Strange Man. Farber is a well-known Valley actor and director as well as the associate artistic director for Stray Cat Theatre. A Vampire Tale’s all-original soundtrack is composed by local musician Kristofer Hill.
A Vampire Tale runs for two weekends: October 26 & 27 at 7:30 p.m., October 28 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., November 2 & 3 at 7:30 p.m. and November 4 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The show is held at Phoenix Theatre’s Hardes Theatre: 100 E. McDowell Rd, Phoenix, AZ, 85004. Tickets for all regular shows start at $25 (plus surcharge).
