Drac in the Saddle Again is one of Pocket Sandwich Theatre’s popular popcorn-tossing melodramas – that’s right, show the villain how you feel by pelting him with a hail of popped kernels. The show parodies horror movie sequels, and imagines Count Dracula settling in the Wild West. The venue is in the shopping center right across Mockingbird Lane from SMU/Mockingbird Station on the Red, Blue and Orange lines.
