The glamorous evening featured a ribbon cutting, a dinner in the festively decorated educational studio, and an exclusive performance of its hit production of “Dracula.”
Birthday cake for CSC’s 17th birthday and dancing on the stage rounded out the evening. Masked guests mingled with actors, trustees, and government officials, but no one fell victim to Dracula’s bite except on stage.
