The popularity of vampires ebbs and flows — like blood? — unlike the garlic-fearing creatures themselves, who have always been around. In the 1990s Anne Rice and Interview with the Vampire were the rage. Now, of course, it's all Twilight and True Blood. Yet long before these bloodsuckers, there was Bram Stoker's Dracula, first published in 1897. This tale of Count Dracula and his undead ways hits the stage this weekend, thanks to the Harris-Stowe State University Players. Get caught up in the fangs at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (November 19 through 21) at the Emerson Performance Center's Bank of America Theatre (3026 Laclede Avenue; www.hssu.edu). The production features special effects, period costumes and even a dance number, so you'll be getting more than your money's worth out of your $5-to-$10 ticket. Make a purchase by calling 314-340-5975 — and watch those necks!
