This past weekend a stage version of the classic tale Dracula opened at the College of the Sequoias in Visalia, a perfect show for the Halloween season! This version was adapted by director Chris Mangels from the novel by Bram Stoker and runs until October 24.

As the season begins to change from the summer heat to the fall brisk and chilly mornings, I begin to look forward to exploring the shorter days among the valley oaks that line many of our city streets and creeks instead of escaping to the high county of the Sierra, to avoid the high summer temperatures at every opportunity. And in this changing season, I can also finally attend to the neglected vegetable garden in my backyard and decide which vegetables to plant before the holiday season gets underway.

Before you go see The Hobbit movie coming out later this year, why not check out the play now on stage at the College of The Sequoias in Visalia. I went this weekend with friends and it was a lot of fun. It’s the kind of show you can take the family to for a fun night out, while helping to support the school’s theatre program at the same time.
