Atlantic City Ballet Presents DRACULA
Halloween just wouldn't be the same without taking in a performance of Atlantic City Ballet's "Dracula". Since 2006, "Dracula" has been mesmerizing audiences with its spell binding choreography, beautiful costumes and captivating music.
This year Dracula returns to the Circus Maximus Theater in Atlantic City and The Strand Theater in Lakewood. In the 13 years since its creation "Dracula," an original work, choreographed by Founder and Artistic Director, Phyllis Papa, has captured audience's imaginations with hypnotic fascination. "Despite the image of the main character, AC Ballet's production is family friendly." says Phyllis Papa. "Audiences of all ages can enjoy our ballet which follows closely to the Bram Stoker novel" This Halloween tradition has gained a following not unlike those who attend The Nutcracker every year. Once again audiences are invited to come in costume to the AC performance for the ballet's 6th annual costume contest. A costume parade after the performance will be held and prizes given.
