Bite Me

Choreographer Lisa Starry was onto this whole sexy vampire thing long before it was faddish. Her annual production of Scorpius Dance Theatre’s A Vampire Tale is all the proof you’ll need, come Halloween. Fans have made attendance at this danced-through show a kind of ritual, and this year Starry is ready for them with some tweaks and new talent. In addition to Scorpius’s 26 dancers, guest artists (including belly dancer Ava Fleming and musician Adam Smith) and a video production will help unfurl an entirely revamped plotline.

The show continues through October 23, but call 602-254-2151 or check for possible added show times for Halloween weekend, as well as for updates on opening and closing night events.
