couple they are. He is a gambler
that goes too far, but what of her?
What is her fate? I’m afraid to
report for them both-it’s too late!
Of course there’s the ser­
vants; Mrs. Kent, Bones and Tess-

what I would suggest.
the game has been played the
vampyre’s won. Now he must leave
and look for other fun.
But wait! Who is this? Corso’s
his name. Can he bring an end to
the vampyre’s reign?
Come join us and see what
happens this night. Is the vampyre
dead or ready for flight? With
laughter and fear and a 12 mem­
ber cast The Vampyre will take
you to the world of the past.
It’s a scream. It’s a bite.
