Roxey Ballet Presents "Dracula"

Roxey Ballet Presents "Dracula"

Roxey Ballet kicks off its 21st season with its dance adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”. Roxey Ballet’s “Dracula” interprets Stoker’s famed horror story through a complete sensory experience of movement, music and spoken word with pyrotechnic, sound and lighting effects. Showcasing 14 professional dancers, the performances take place in the intimate, 72-seat Canal Studio Theater in Lambertville.

“We’re so excited to celebrate Halloween in Lambertville with 12 thrilling performances of our popular Dracula ballet,” said Mark Roxey, Founding Director of Roxey Ballet. “This production is not for the faint-of-heart. The small venue combined with bone-chilling music and multi-media effects draws the audience deeply into 18th century England and the disturbing story crafted by our world-class dancers.”

Mark Roxey’s original dance choreography, set to a collage of music and sound effects by David Hanoman and stage designs by Lisa McMillan, follows Stoker’s classic vampire tale. The audience comes face-to-face with all the notorious characters: the unwary Renfield who accidentally falls victim to Dracula on his way to the opera; the lovely, easily-seduced Lucy; and Dr. Van Helsing who leads the attack to rescue Lucy and others fallen prey to the vampires.

Performances take place at the Canal Studio Theater, 243 North Union Street in Lambertville, New Jersey on Friday, October 23 at 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.; Saturday, October 24 at 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.; Sunday, October 25 at 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.; and Halloween weekend on Friday, October 30 at 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.; Saturday, October 31 at 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, November 1 at 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.

General admission seating may be purchased online at www.RoxeyBallet.org or by phone at (609) 397-7616. Tickets cost $30.00 in advance and $35.00 at the door. There are special rates for seniors and disabled. The audience is encouraged to come in Halloween costume. Parental discretion is advised.
