3 performances of ‘Zombie Prom’ set for this weekend
As prom edges closer and the girls search for their flowing gowns, another dance pushes its way into our lives. Years of apocalyptic films have taught us that zombies are to be avoided at all costs and that one misstep could cost you your brain.
The cast and behind-the-scenes crew have been rehearsing for weeks and finally opened the curtains to “Zombie Prom” in Stuver Auditorium on Wednesday.
Technology plays a big part of the show. Old vintage cameras will be on-stage throughout, streaming film from years back that relates to the play.
The show features senior Sam Kumpe as Toffee, senior Kyle Raper as Jonny, junior Michael Atkins as Eddie, and sophomore Daniela Ruelas as Miss Delilah Strict.
Cast member Kelsey Lynch, a junior, said audiences can expect something different with “Zombie Prom.”
“I would say there’s a lot of new aspects,” Lynch said. “It incorporates a lot of new things that you don’t see in many high school plays. Overall creativity.”
“Zombie Prom” will be performed tonight and Saturday night at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students. On Super Bowl Sunday, they are holding a judged showing at 2 p.m. Theater teacher Jeff Winkler encouraged everyone who can make it to come and support the show on Sunday.
