Zombie Prom - 1996 - Off-Broadway

Set in the Atomic '50s, "Zombie Prom" is the tale of a sweet, Gidget-like teenage girl named Toffee, played by Adena Ershow, and her "rebel without a cause" boyfriend, Jonny, played by Brad Cashman. The two meet at Enrico Fermi High School and fall in love, but the principal, Miss Delilah Strict intervenes, persuading the indecisive young Toffee to break up with Jonny. Tortured by the betrayal, Jonny drives his motorcycle to the nearby nuclear power plant and flings himself from the top of a cooling tower. Guilt-ridden and alone, Toffee mourns the loss of her love until, one day, Jonny returns, risen from the dead as a teenage nuclear zombie - and the fun begins!

Marius (Justin Mouledous) begs Eponine (Emma Pollet) for help finding Cosette 'Life-changing,' 'Engaging,' 'Rewarding,' 'Surreal,' 'Exciting,' 'Humbling,' 'Wonderful,' 'Extraordinary,' and 'A Blast and a Half' are just a few of the ways this extraordinary, young cast is encapsulating what it is like to be a part of The New Octavians production of the epic, grand, and uplifting, Les Miserables School Edition-The show that packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled over 65 million people worldwide.  Winner of over 100 international awards, Les Miserables is an epic and inspiring story about the survival of the human spirit. The musical, based on Victor Hugo's novel, adapted for high school performers, features one of the most memorable scores of all time and some of the most memorable characters to ever grace the stage.  This cast of nearly fifty students, hailing from twelve different schools from the Northshore area of the New Orleans Metropolitan area, is certainly fulfilling expectations.  It is always a challenge to produce a show of this magnitude, but for Director, Brent Goodrich, being able to recruit talent from all over our community has made this production not only possible, but even more sensational.
