Run! Hide! Lock the doors! After a NASA probe contaminated with mysterious radiation crashes to Earth, the recently deceased begin to rise again, and boy are they hungry! They may be out to eat the living, but these walking dead are rampant with wit and sarcasm­— certainly a breed above your garden-variety undead. Based on the cult classic film by George A. Romero, this zombie-thon is a delightfully skewed send-up of one of the most beloved science fiction genres of all time. This fast-paced comedy is packed to the (plan) nines with contagious humor— you’ll laugh yourself to death over these horrifically and hysterically misunderstood flesh-eating monsters. Dedicated to the zombie in all of us.

Can be paired with Plan 9 from Outer Space for a discounted rate.


Fallout from a satellite probe shot to Venus returns to Earth carrying a mysterious radiation that transforms the unburied dead into flesh-eating zombies. Seven people trapped in an isolated farmhouse, held hostage by ravenous ghouls with an attitude, begin to turn on each other as the rather nonthreatening dead encroach. A gripping, fun-filled play that brings all the fright of the cult classic to life with a twist making it appropriate for all audiences. This blend of campy horror laced with humor envelops the audience in the action and unfolds into a shocking theatrical ending.
