Frightful Fun Coming To Winters in October!


Coming soon to the Winters Community Center Theater…the Winters Theatre Company production of  “Night of the Anemic Vampire.”   This comedy melodrama pokes fun at the myriad novels, television shows, and films which explore the popular myth of vampires, the bat-like creatures who haunt the night in search of the blood of their human victims.  “Night of the Anemic Vampire” is the work of area playwright, director, and actor, the late Darrel Akers, and was first performed in Napa in 1977.   The play has received rave reviews for its rapid-fire dialogue and zany characterizations. While many vampire plays are truly frightening, “Night of the Anemic Vampire” was written strictly for laughs and comedic effects.

Performance dates are Friday and Saturday evenings, October 24 and 25, and on the following Friday and Saturday evenings, October 31 and November 1.  There will also be two Sunday matinee performances at 2pm, on October 26 and November 2.  The Friday and Saturday shows start at 8pm ,except for the opening night show on Friday October 24th, which will be the gala opening at 7:30pm.   Audience members are encouraged to join in the fun and wear scary costumes, especially to the Halloween performance on October 31.  Tickets to see “Night of the Anemic Vampire” are available at: or by calling (530) 795-4014.  Please contact WTC at for more information.

See you at the show!

7:30 p.m. at the Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Avenue.  Come to whichever night works best for you!
In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids–probably the most inventively awful kids in history.

Children ages 3 and 4 may audition for the Angel choir or to be a shepherd.
Performances are scheduled on November 21-23, 28-30 (Thanksgiving weekend) and December 5-7.
Rehearsals will take place two to three weeknights per week and on a couple of Saturdays.
