Gothic Gala to raise funds for Theatre scholarships
The evening will begin at 6:00 p.m. with Halloween-themed hors d'oeuvres and a silent auction in the Janssen Conference Center. Then at 7:15 p.m., the party will take a short walk across campus to the Perkins Student Center Auditorium for a 7:30 p.m. performance of Bram Stoker's Dracula, followed by dessert.
The production was written by Steven Dietz and directed by Cleo House, assistant professor of Theatre Arts and program coordinator for the Theatre degree at Penn State Berks.
Attendees are encouraged to dress as a character from Dracula, another gothic character, or to wear any appropriate costume. Although costumes are not required, appropriate formal gala attire is requested.
Tickets are $30 in advance and $40 the night of the gala. For more information, call the Box Office at 610-396-6371.
