McCain Performance Series to feature 'Dracula,' the classic gothic horror story by Bram Stoker

Monday, Oct. 5, 2015 


MANHATTAN — One of the most infamous creatures of the night is coming to Kansas State University's McCain Performance Series. Bram Stoker's "Dracula" will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13, in McCain Auditorium.

"Dracula" was published in 1897 with little popular fanfare. Critics, however, praised the author and put Stoker in the category of Mary Shelly and Edgar Allan Poe. But readers did not flock to the tale of this otherworldly being that feeds off others to preserve eternal life until the mid-1900s when film versions generated enormous press for the title. The classic gothic horror story has spawned hundreds of spin-offs in popular culture from "Twilight" to "True Blood."

Tickets for "Dracula" start at $17.50, plus applicable taxes and fees, and are available at the McCain Auditorium box office, online at k-state.edu/mccain, or by calling 785-532-6428.
