The event will also include an open bar, light appetizers and costume contest with fabulous Synetic prizes!

Tickets are $50 and include admission to that evening’s performance of The Picture of Dorian Gray, and admission to the post-show party in Synetic’s new studio space.

About the Production of The Picture of Dorian Gray

Fearing the ravages of time and realizing the impermanence of youth, Dorian Gray makes a fateful wish-that his almost supernaturally lifelike portrait grow old while he remains forever young and beautiful. Synetic’s inventiveness and unforgettable visuals will elevate Oscar Wilde’s fantastical story to yet another level, following a long list of successful literary adaptations of such well-known classics as Dracula, Faust, Frankenstein, The Fall of the House of Usher, and Jekyll and Hyde, The Master and Margarita, and The Three Musketeers.

The Picture of Dorian Gray plays through November 3, 2013 at Synetic Theater – 1800 South Bell Street, in Arlington, VA. For tickets, call (866) 811-4111, or purchase them online.
