   Several great shows to choose from this weekend - here's the rundown:

- Dracula - Jenny Wiley Theatre presents and adaptation of the Bram Stoker classic vampire novel by the creator of CBS’s Extant, Mickey Fisher. The play will be presented at the Pikeville Mainstage on Oct. 29 and 30 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25, $22 and $14.

- Mother Hicks - Alban Theatre presents an evocative story, richly realized through all of the resources of theatre including poetry, character and story. The setting includes various locations in and around Ware, Illinois, in the late spring of 1935 during the Great Depression. This play is about three outsiders - a foundling girl known only as Girl; a deaf boy, eloquent in the language of his silence; and an eccentric recluse, Mother Hicks, who is suspected of being a witch. The tale, told with poetry and sign language, chronicles the journeys of these three to find themselves, and each other, in a troubled time. The play will be presented Oct. 28 and 29 at 8 p.m., and Oct. 30 at 2 p.m. at the Alban Theatre in St. Albans.
