Night of the Living Dead! The Musical! is a sidesplitting rock n' roll comedy sendup of the legendary 1968 zombie film. Facing a growing mob of strange, bloodthirsty creatures, three couples seek refuge in an abandoned house...but will they survive the night!? With an infectious original score Night of the Living Dead! The Musical! has been called this generation's Little Shop of Horrors! The show had its regional premiere at Minneapolis Musical Theatre and is currently being licensed for regional productions.
