Description: The Astra Dance Company invites you to join them for this October for the debut of this new piece, which promises "a vivid performance of dance and music, telling the story of two lovers trapped by an ancient feud whose passionate and ultimately disastrous affair culminates in a fiery reunion after 200 years. The production is sexy, provocative with the dark undertones of Edger Allen Poe exploring dance and love across two centuries."
Doors open at 6pm. Arrive early and enjoy an array of pre-show entertainment, including a wine bar featuring Austrian wines and delicacies, live harp music by High Priestess, and a historical presentation by the show's creator David Wilkinson on the rich history that lays the backdrop for the story of Astra.
Tickets run from $20 to $80.
You are advised to come dressed for an elegant evening of theatrical performance and dancing the waltz.
No one under 10 is admitted.
Parking is $5 in the lot directly across the street from the theatre, on 3rd Street and Broadway.
Astra will be performed on October 22-23 and 29-30 at the Million Dollar Theatre. Saturday shows are followed by a "Waltz Ball."
NOTE: There will be a follow-up "Poe-etic Halloween" Ball at El Rey Theater on Halloween night, including a performance of "Astra," plus other entertainment.
