    ART presents “”Dracula””

    “”Twilight”” and “”True Blood”” can take a backseat this weekend because “”Dracula”” is the VIP vampire in Arizona Repertory Theatre’s production at the Marroney Theatre. The Halloween spirit of the dark and macabre abounds in this production directed by Brent Gibbs and performed by students from UA’s School of Theatre, Film and Television. This adaptation is a fresh take on the classic vampiric villain’s story, as Dracula battles Van Helsing using his psychic powers. “”Dracula”” provides an evening of spooks and special effects that will impress even the most stoic Halloween scrooge.

    1025 N. Olive St.

    7:30 p.m.

    $28 per ticket. Student discounts available.

Titanic: the Artifact Exhibition presents 127 artifacts that have never before been on public display, as well as room re-creations of the ship’s interior. The exhibition evokes a poignant, human connection to the 1,500 lives that were lost to the frigid waters of the Atlantic. Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition is an emotional and educational experience for all ages.
