‘Dracula’ opens this week at Chief Logan

October 11, 2018

LOGAN — Make your way through the violent patient ward of a Transylvania Lunatic Asylum, then be whisked away into an epic stage adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic gothic novel “Dracula” under the stars at the Liz Spurlock Amphitheater at Chief Logan State Park.

“There’s never been a haunted experience of this magnitude ever staged in Southern West Virginia,” said Aracoma Story Inc. director Bill France. “Murderous mad men, blood-thirsty vampires and things that go bump in the night all in the same location.”

Those who are faint of heart, can watch the show without taking the tour of the asylum.

Those who want to do the tour should plan on arriving by 7:30 p.m. to claim their spot on the tour and their seat for the show. The pre-show starts promptly at 8 p.m. “Dracula” starts immediately after. Gates open at 7 p.m.

The Aracoma Story Inc. wraps up its 2018 season with “Dracula” and the Transylvania Lunatic Asylum haunted experience. Dates are Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 11-13, Oct. 18-20 and Oct. 25-27.

Online tickets can be purchased at BrownPaperTickets.com.

Local tickets are available at Gatti’s at the Fountain Place Mall, Pic Pac at Man and Aracoma Drug in Chapmanville. Tickets will also be available at the gate.
