In time for Halloween, Roxey Ballet is staging its spectacular production of Bram Stokers, “Dracula.” Roxey Ballet’s groundbreaking, original ballet choreography was created in 2001. It follows the classic “Dracula” horror story of 18th century England, telling the tale in a “total theater experience.”
“The audiences are as close to the performers as possible. But don’t be afraid – they don’t bite,” says Mark Roxey, Artistic Director. Audiences will recognize the unwary Renfield who accidentally falls victim to the vampire on his way to the ball; lovely Lucy, whose beauty attracts Dracula who seduces her; and Dr. Van Helsing, who leads the attack to rescue Lucy and others who have fallen prey to the vampire’s attacks.
“Dracula” runs through Halloween. The set is abstract and minimalist, designed by Lisa McMillan. Costumes created by Nilda Roxey Jones and Alicia Worden. Performances are held at Canal Studios, 243 N. Union Street, Lambertville, NJ.
