Of course I was under the spell, and the wonderful part is that, even at the time, I perfectly knew I was. But I gave myself up to it; it was an antidote to any pain, and I had more pains than one,” writes Henry James in his famous novella The Turn of the Screw. To put viewers under this sort of spell is the aim of Aux Dog Theatre's (3011 Monte Vista NE) adaptation of the classic ghost story for the stage. Directed by Richard E. Peck, this production continues its run this week, and will close curtains on the show Nov. 12. In the meantime, you can catch chills Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, and Sunday matinees at 2pm. Tickets run from $12-20.
