DRACULA


Andromeda Community Theatre’s next show is Dracula, based on the novel by Bram Stoker and dramatized by Hamilton Deane and John L. Balderston. It’s taking place at The Country Mill in Charlotte and the Haunted Cider Mill has become the scene of the sanatorium where much of the action takes place.


In this story, Lucy Seward is suffering from a mysterious illness. Her father is the doctor in charge of an English sanatorium. A specialist there is Dr. Van Helsing who believes she is the victim of a vampire, a creature who sucks the blood from its victims. They eventually track the vampire to Count Dracula and put him to rest in “a striking and novel manner.”


The show is family friendly, but is intended to provide thrills and chills.


Before the show, you can enjoy a cup of cider and a fresh donut for $2. You can also take your show ticket and enjoy 10% off fall treats at the Country Mill store.


Dracula, Andromeda Community Theater, The Country Mill 4648 Otto Road, Charlotte, 7 p.m. Thursdays and Friday, 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8-17. Tickets $11, $9 for students and seniors. www.andromedaplayers.org, 269-262-1943.


TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD


In June Andromeda Community Theatre proudly presented "To Kill a Mockingbird" dramatized by Christopher Sergel from the book by Harper Lee. These performances took place in the Historic Red 1885 Courthouse courtroom located at the Courthouse Square in Charlotte, Michigan.


Scout, a young girl in a quiet southern town, is about to experience dramatic events that will affect the rest of her life. She and brother, Jem, are being raised by their widower father, Atticus, and by their strong-minded housekeeper named Calpurnia. Wide-eyed Scout is fascinated with the sensitively revealed people of her small town but, from the start, there's a rumble of thunder just under the calm surface of life here. Set in 1935, this play illustrates the social issues of this time period as the black people of the community have a special feeling about Scout's father. In her youthful innocence, she does not know why. A few of her white friends are inexplicably hostile and Scout doesn't understand this either. Unpleasant things are shouted and the bewildered girl turns to her father. Atticus, a lawyer, explains that he is defending a young negro wrongfully accused of a grave crime. Since this is causing such an upset, Scout wants to know why he is doing it. "Because if I didn't," her father replies, "I couldn't hold my head up." When she asks why Atticus would take on such a hopeless fight, he replies, "Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason not to try."
