Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - To help you kick off your Halloween festivities, The Boutique Dinner Theatre has added a performance of "Transilvania" on Monday, Oct. 30 at 8:30 pm. An optional dinner can be enjoyed at 7:30 pm.
The show will continue throughout the season in its regular 8:30 pm Sunday slot. Oct. 29 and 30 are special "Pre-Halloween Monster Bashes," in which audience members are encouraged to be creative and come to the party dressed as their favorite monsters.
"Transilvania" is a musical, performed in Spanish, featuring Federico Fonseca, Paul Tirzah Guerrero, and Alejandro Lamas Bogarin. According to Fonseca, "You don't need to know Spanish to enjoy the energy and fun … 'Transilvania' is a monsters' convention, a live TV broadcast made by monsters."
Monsters and scary characters from legends, books and films get together to celebrate their annual reunion-and a few problems arise. Children are welcome.
