Celebrate Halloween and the Utah Shakespeare Festival’s spooky rendition of Bram Stoker’s gothic story by attending Dracula’s Costume Night. For the last two showings of Dracula on October 30 and 31, the Festival is sponsoring a costume contest and inviting playgoers to come “dressed to the teeth” in hopes of winning a prize for the best Dracula-themed costume.
Take two 8,000-lumen projectors, stack them on top of each other, hook them to a powerful computer, and point them at a rear-projection screen. What do you get?
Jesse Berger, director of this season's Dracula, sits down with us to discuss his introduction into the arts, his approach to this classic tale and the symbolism throughout.
The world’s most famous vampire, a cigar-smoking man in a dress, and one of theatre’s most loveable mutts can all be found this fall at the Utah Shakespeare Festival. Five of the Festival’s six summer shows will be closing the first week of September; but Charley’s Aunt will continue its summer run, along with two additional offerings,Dracula and The Two Gentlemen of Verona, through October 31.
Tyler Pierce (Dracula) extends his stay from the summer season, where he appeared in King Lear and Henry IV, Part 2. Chris Mixon (Renfield) was last here in 2007 in Art. We chatted with them to learn more about the play and this production.
Artistic Director, David Ivers, shares his thoughts about the 2015 Fall Season at the Utah Shakespeare Festival.
