The Zombie Apocalypse has arrived and everybody's hungry. With 15 songs, great dancing and plenty of laughs, The Zombies: A Musical is a world premiere comedy set in a small town in middle-America, where the cast of characters face issues like racism, gun control, religion and conspiracy theories. The romantic triangle between handsome Junior, suicidal goth waitress Chloe and rich stoner kid Basil is complicated...the secret carried by Little Pete is tearing him apart...will he tell his father?
