Feeling exhausted by the mere thought of another holiday season looming? A cheesy but seasonally appropriate motivational poster might encourage you to “fang in there,” but we’ll settle for recommending some fun with Scorpius Dance Theatre’s A Vampire Tale. It follows the adventures of a mere mortal lured into the world of seductive bloodsuckers. Created by Scorpius artistic director Lisa Starry, it’s been a staple of the Valley dance scene for more than a decade.

Scorpius promises “the look and feel of a live rock concert” during this full-length contemporary dance production, featuring 22 dancers performing to a soundtrack created by local musician Kristofer Hill. Expect a mix of dance, drama, storytelling, and aerial arts — plus biting performances by returning favorites Nicole Olson and Gavin Sisson.

Sink your teeth in on opening night at 8 p.m. on Thursday, October 27, at Phoenix Theatre’s Hormel Theatre, 100 East McDowell Road. Tickets are $33, and available through the Phoenix Theatre box office at 602-254-2151. Visit
