THE VAMPIRE! aboard Centennial Showboat Wows 'em

THE VAMPIRE! J.R. Planche's haunting thriller interspersed with musical olios straight from the golden days of vaudeville opened aboard the Minnesota Centennial Showboat to cheers of enthusiastic audiences this week.

The dynamic duo of directors, Peter Moore staging the melodrama and Vern Sutton directing the tuneful interludes of song and dance spiced with fun gimmicks and surprises, leads the talented cast of ten Showboat Players, who strut their stuff as actors, singers and dancers. The entire company of performers and crew --all University of Minnesota theatre students -- are presently preparing for theatrical careers through the BFA and BA actor training programs.

Playing through August 25, The VAMPIRE! and musical olios are performed at 8pm
Tuesday-Saturday; with 2:30 pm matinees Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
