Feast on Tacoma City Ballet’s ‘Dracula’

Audience members are encouraged to wear costumes and donate blood.

Tacoma City Ballet presents “Dracula” at the Federal Way Performing Arts and Events Center.

The community is invited to sink their teeth into the Bram Stoker-inspired ballet Oct. 26-28, accompanied by the Tacoma Ballet Theater Orchestra.

Erin Cergiolli, executive and artistic director for Tacoma City Ballet, said in a press release, “We hope that Dracula will become for Halloween what Nutcracker is for Christmas. Families will enjoy the fabulous dancers, luxurious costumesand the classic Gothic story that has become a part of modern culture.”

Audience members are encouraged to wear costumes to the performance if they choose.

Cascade Regional Blood Bank will be in the parking lot of the PAEC, so if guests would like to they can also donate blood before the show begins.

For young children, the ballet will also host a free event, “Dance with Dracula,” on Oct. 20 from 11:30 a.m.to 12:30 p.m. and again from 1:30-2:30 p.m.

This event is not scary for the children, and includes dancers in costume from “Dracula” as well as mask-making and a dance to the ballet’s score.

Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 26 and 2 p.m. Oct. 27 and 28, and tickets range from $17 to $70.
