Beginning this weekend, October 24-26, Bram Stoker’s famous DRACULA is set to be performed by the Brandywine Ballet Company. It’s the story of a forbidden Victorian romance between beautiful Mina and the beguiling Count Dracula set amidst eerily lit castles and sun-drenched terraces. The tragic story unfolds with impeccable soloing, sensual pas de deux, and exhilarating ensemble dancing. Tantalizing costumes, sword battles, artful makeup and an emotionally moving musical score make Dracula ghoulish fun for all. Performances will take place at Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall.

About the show:
Two of literature’s most unforgettable young ladies get mixed up together in a magical meeting that produces hilarious results as the audience becomes reacquainted with a cast of familiar characters and sees them in a new light: the Cowardly Lion, the White Rabbit, the Tin Man, the Mad Hatter, the Scarecrow, the Dormouse, the Queen and the Witch from those enduring classics The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland. This fun-filled romp follows Alice and Dorothy and their coteries as they try to unscramble their stories with the help of a contemporary young lad who started the whole thing to begin with when he put off a book report until the very last minute. Dorothy Meets Alice is a fun and fanciful fantasy at its finest. As the two girls would say, “Wiz you were Hare!”
