Blood, fangs and death! In this blood thirsty tale of terror, Count Dracula slips into Victorian London so that he can rest between victims. The city seems helpless against his frightful powers, and only one man, Dr. Van Helsing, can stop the carnage. In order to do this he must uncover the vampire’s lair and pierce his heart with a wooden stake.


“Halloween IV: The Prom” is a crowd pleaser that will get spines tingling and skeleton toes tapping as we high-kick off the evening with a spooky music and dance medley!
