One of the great things about living in a city like Dalton, an area that combines both small town charm and the economic prowess of a larger city, is that there are plenty of things to do. The Artistic Civic Theatre puts on a variety of fabulous performances every year, which may not be as huge as a professional theatre, but are still charming nonetheless.

This October, they’re proud to be putting on Dracula, a show that’s certain to please just before Halloween. It follows Bram Stoker’s classic tale and combines all of the themes of seduction and true love within.Flickr

You’ll be able to learn about the nature of Lucy’s relationship with Count Dracula, that alerts her fiance and father, who soon find that horrible murders and other occurrences in the town may be part of the supernatural. Dracula being an undead creature of the night may not be a surprise to you, but he certainly shocks the members of the cast, who don’t know how to deal with the paranormal.

The show is being performed on October 19th, 20th, 25th, 26th, and 27th at 8PM. Look forward to a matinee and a midnight showing!
