Scorpius Dance Theatre Repertory Showcase Features Recent Works, Old Favorites in Peoria

Scorpius Dance Theatre is serving up a smorgasbord of dance this month with a 15-piece repertory showcase being performed April 18 and 19 at Peoria Center for the Performing Arts. The center is best known as the home of Theater Works, which operates the venue and often features productions by other performing artists.

It's a logical leap for Scorpius, a company founded in 1999 that's best known for Halloween season performances of artistic director Lisa Starry's A Vampire Tale. Several members of its board of directors are prominent members of the metro Phoenix theater scene, and those who have seen Scorpius perform know they have a flair for drama.
