The City Youth Ballet brings “ballet with a bite” to the Halloween season with its staging of Dracula set for 7:30 p.m. on October 14 & 15 as well as a matinee performance set for 2:30 p.m. on October 15 at The Paramount Center for the Arts located in downtown Bristol.
This rendition of Bram Stoker’s classic story of horror and passion features impeccable pas de deux, along with haunting sets and costumes, and even humor set among the menacing vampires and gypsies who grace the 19th-century stage. “This is an action-packed ballet that has challenged our dancers to bring to life the conflict, romance, and suspense of this story,” said Pace-White.

The cast is comprised all of local performers including senior and junior dancers of the CYB. Choreography has been led by Susan Pace-White, CYB’s artistic director, and Sarah Sims, associate director along with choreography set by guest instructor, Thom Blessing.
Dracula is the story of repressed Count Dracula who seeks to avenge his wife’s death by tormenting an Eastern European town, especially its local real estate broker, Jonathon Harker, his fiancé, Mina, and her friend, Lucy. As Dracula stalks the townspeople, they turn on him in a riveting climax.

Ticket price is $14.00 for Adults, $10.00 for Students/Children.

Tickets are reserved seating, and are available by calling the Paramount Box Office at (423) 274-8920 or by going online at www.etix.com
