Professor Van Helsing and his brave comrades must hunt down and destroy the profoundly evil Count Dracula. But the Count is exceedingly resourceful, employing superhuman strength, psychic powers, and shape-changing to confound and frustrate his antagonists. Culminating in a wild and shocking confrontation between the King of Vampires and those who would rid the world of him, this adaptation is an action-packed, blood-soaked retelling of Bram Stoker's classic tale of horror.

"...no matter one's station in life, the Dance of Death unites all"
Paule Turner will again join creative forces with Music Professor, Dr. Lourin Plant to premier Danse Macabre. Fascinated with the late-medieval allegory, this original work of dance theatre meditates on the universality of death and brings together Rowan University's Contemporary Dance Company and Collegium Musicum Assemble in a Grand-Guignol inspired dance of death. With live music, dance and puppetry, Danse Macabre promises to be a visceral dark, gothic, quirky fantasy pondering the fragility of life.
February 23-25 at 8PM, February 26 at 2 PM
Returning to Rome from a war against the Goths, the general Titus Andronicus brings with him the queen Tamora and her three sons as prisoners of war. Titus' sacrifice of Tamora's eldest son to appease the ghosts of his 21 dead sons, and his decision to refuse to accept the title of emperor, initiates a terrible cycle of mutilation, rape and murder. At the center of the nightmare moves the self-delighting Aaron.
Spectacularly, even grotesquely violent and daringly experimental, Titus was the smash hit of Shakepeare's early career, and is written with a ghoulish energy he was never to repeat elsewhere.
