Western Carolina University’s original radio broadcast adaptation of Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel “Dracula” will be staged at the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2012.

Tickets to the event, which begins at 7:30 p.m., are $10 and went on sale Tuesday, Nov. 1.

“This generation of young people is really interested in vampires, thanks to the ‘Twilight’ series, and it is time they learned the truth about Dracula,” said Don Connelly, head of WCU’s communication department, who wrote the script and is producing the show.


On Monday, downtown Highlands was haunted by hoards of ghouls, ghosts and more at its annual Halloween festival.

The usually small and quiet town above the clouds came alive for its “All Hallows Eve” event, as several hundred visitors and locals flooded the streets for candy, music and fun, proving that Highlands knows how to throw down on Halloween.

While waves of trick-or-treaters cobbled together, trickling in from side streets and snaking their way along both sides of Main Street, downtown shopkeepers opened up their doors and gave out candy in the spirit of the age-old holiday.
