by BWW News Desk - Nov 7, 2013

The Cowardly Scarecrow Theatre Company, INC has announced the craziest performance in Musical of the Living Dead history - Two casts in the same performance - Musical of the Living Dead: Double Tap. For the closing performance on Saturday, Nov. 9 every single cast member (a total of 22 actors) will perform, adding a unique element to the performance: 'tapping' each other in and out in a tag team fashion throughout the show to create the ULTIMATE Musical of the Living Dead experience. To add to the madness, more than one actor might perform the same song or scene...simultaneously. The audience could see two Frans, one Steve, Judy give birth to herself - or even cameos by the show's creators, Marc Lewallen and Brand Younts. Anything could happen in this not-to-be-missed performance. (more...)
