Albion College Theatre Takes A Bite of Pop Culture with 'Earl the Vampire'
Reported by Paige Narins,'13
From "Twilight" to "True Bloods," vampires are alive and well in pop culture as well as on Albion's stage. The Albion College Department of Theatre stages "Earl The Vampire," a play by Michigan native, Sean Welch, from February 22 through February 25, in the Herrick Auditorium. All performances will begin at 8 p.m. and no late seating will be available.
"Earl the Vampire" stars Hampton, an activist focused on getting vampires recognized as a minority group in America. Dark hilarity ensues, when the public tries to take advantage of him, his family tries to stop him and the government tries to silence him. And lurking behind all the action is Earl, a vampire set in his ways and determined not to let Hampton drag an age-old myth into reality.
