Rated 4.0

With daylight waning and All Hallow’s Eve looming, it’s a perfect time for a little vampire action. And for that, we can always count on Dracula. What makes a good Dracula production is a good Dracula. And for the most part, City Theatre’s Ryan Williams delivers. And adding to the overall spookiness is haunting music, effective sound effects, and handsome costumes and sets dripping with blood-red accents. City Theatre, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays, and a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, October 18; $10-$15.
Art Court Theatre at Sacramento City College, 3835 Freeport Boulevard; (916) 558-2228; www.citytheatre.net. Through October 19.
