Show Information:

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! Fast-paced and packed with contagious humor, you’ll laugh yourself to death over these horrifically and hysterically misunderstood flesh-eating monsters.

  • Johnny: Barbara’s brother, nostalgic, teasing, gets eaten by Zombies. 
  • Barbara: Pretty much a hysterical mess from start to finish.
  • Ben: Brave, tough guy, man with a plan, a bit brooding.
  • The Zombies- a lovely mix of terrifying and hilarious
    • Zombie #1* (Gerald)
    • Zombie #2* (Madge)
    • Zombie #3* (Carl)
    • Zombie #4* (Tiffany)

  • Roger Reporter*: A field reporter interviewing citizens during the outbreak.
  • Dr. Scalpel*: A German doctor. Speaks with a German accent.
  • Betty Piper: A country bumpkin.
  • Sheriff Dwyer*: Authority urging everyone to take shelter. Likes the word “mayhem.”
  • Harry: A cowardly know-it-all. Argues with Ben. Married to Helen, father to Karen. 
  • Tom: Tries to serve as peacemaker between Ben and Harry. Newlyweds with Judy.
  • Sally Salsworth*: a reporter.
  • Helen: Married to Harry, mother of Karen. Can’t stand her husband.
  • Judy: Newlyweds with Tom. Young, innocent and naive.
  • News Anchor #2*: Every bit as serious and self-important as News Anchor #1.
