What: The Alley Theatre's young professional group, SCENE, post-performance cocktail party.

Where: The Wortham Theatre Scene Shop at the University of Houston, where the Alley Theatre is bunking until remodeling of the downtown theater is completed next season.

The 411: After the second night's performance of Dracula, the Original Vampire Play, the YPs gathered in the rustic setting for hors d'oeuvres from Jim Benton of Houston and adult libations. The hit of the gathering was the opportunity to schmooze with the creature of the night Jay Sullivan, sans his black cape and fangs, and with Jeremy Webb, who is said to steal the show as the wild-eyed Renfield.

Who: Getting a jumpstart on Halloween chills were Carlos Meltzer and Nick Espinosa, Brandon Weinbrenner, Joni and Derek Finchman, Julie Stephenson, Haley Polak, Amanda Zimmerman, Karen Mann and Melissa Bruce.
