This year, Scorpius dancer and aerial artist Gavin Sisson will play Viktor, the vampire king, a role originated by David Starry. And we have a good feeling that Sisson will take the dark, creepy role, originated to new heights (literally).
The show opens Thursday, October 2, at Phoenix Theatre, 100 East McDowell Road. Performances continue in the Hormel Theatre through Saturday, October 10. Tickets are $25 to $45 and available through www.phoenixtheatre.com. Find more info about the show at www.scorpiusdance.com.
