The Acrosstown Youthtroupe (ARTy) proudly presents: 10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse by Don Zolidis.
Halloween may be a particularly dangerous time for zombies, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be vigilant all year long! Join our ARTy team as they informatively— and hilariously— show you how to survive a zombie apocalypse. Performances are Friday and Saturday, November 13 & 14, at 8:00 PM, and Sunday, November 15 at 2:00 PM.
It’s the end of the world and hordes of rampaging zombies are about to kill you. What do you do? Try your hand at kung fu against the undead? Attempt to reason with creatures that would rather eat brains than use them? Turn to this handy and hilarious guide to survive the apocalypse! (Hint: sacrifice the weak is step number one.) Join our somewhat out-of-touch narrators as they show YOU how to survive the Zombie Apocalypse!
This performance features a large cast of talented young actors:
- Mary Whited, who last appeared as the “Spirit of Dance” in The Fantasist will play a little girl who’s love for her grandma results in her being turned into a child zombie reminiscent of the first episode of popular The Walking Dead series.
- Madeline Smyth, who last appeared as the “Sun Wolf” at the ART, plays Susan, the pretty girl who is put up to the impossible task of “romancing” the zombies.
- As a special treat, Madelyne’s brother Tyler Smyth is featured as one of the zombies.
- Jasmine Murphey is making her stage debut at the ART in the role of “Christy” a no-nonsense master of sarcasm who embraces the zombie trope as a symbol for our post-modern consumerism.
- Skyler Pemberton, who last appeared at the ART in the role of “Prince Hubert”, takes on a dramatically different role as “Sam”, a hip teen with a penchant for pessimism.
- Finally, the survivor team is rounded out by Zach Freeman, another debut ART performer who portrays “Jimmy”, the all-American guy who is just looking to get out of the apocalypse alive.
- The cast is rounded out by a motley crew of zombies, who are out to eat your brains, but not without appreciation for a snappy dance number or a witty joke.
Notable in this production, is the focus on youth creativity–the make up artists, costumers, lighting and sound operators are also all members of ARTy.
This hilarious guide to surviving the Zombie Apocalypse is guaranteed to please children of all ages (especially the ones who have to go to work for a living). Although there’s no strong language or “adult” situations parental guidance is recommended– these are scary ZOMBIES, after all!
