Playhouse on the Square Presents ZOMBIES FROM THE BEYOND, 10/5

Playhouse on the Square presents the regional premiere of ZOMBIES FROM THE BEYOND, with book, music and lyrics by James Valcq, October 5-28, 2012.  

It’s the 1950s, Eisenhower is President, and all is peaceful at the Milwaukee Space Center. That is, until a flying saucer arrives carrying buxom alien zombies who have come to collect male specimens to re-populate their female-laden planet! It’s a quirky musical comedy that spoofs everything from the movie musicals of the 50s to the grade-B space invasion films of the era with a score that’s reminiscent of 50s pop. 

Sponsored by Friends of United Housing and Sue & Frank Guarino

The cast includes: Zombina: Emily Draffen, Charlene: Noby Edwards, Rick: Stephen Garrett, Major: John Hemphill, Billy: Richie MacLeod, Trenton: Colin Morgan, Mary: Eileen Peterson, Directed by Ann Marie Hall, Choreographer: StanDrew Parker, Music Director: Renee Kemper, Lighting Designer: Ashley Ryan Beeler, and Costume Designer: BetH Clark.
