NExt season



Well In case I forgot to mention it...(as if I have had nothing else on my mind...) I have been selected as Director for the opening show of next season. ZOMBIES FROM THE BEYOND. It is a Hoot! A campy space/earth invasion musical. Takes place in Milwaukee in 1953, just at the heigth of the space invaders stories. IT is about a space ship from BEYOND that invades Milwaukee and tries to capture he-specimens to take back to their planet for propagation purposes. Add in the leader of the Group ZOMBINA a buxom Zombie with her secret Weapon in her throat...(get your minds out of the gutter!) and a tap dancing delivery boy, a sweet young thing, daughter of the space center, and a Russian spy posing as a scientist and you have the cast. Lots of music, lots of campy action and a really crude space center( think pie-plates put on a wall as knobs, ) and VOILA> ZOMBIES FROM THE BEYOND!

It was not my first choice to Direct, but I am glad to have the opportunity to prove my worth yet again. I know that with my twisted sense of humor and the twisted minds of my staff, this will be a good one.

google it and follow the links if you want to see clips and hear pieces of the music. ZOMBIES FROM THE BEYOND coming soon at a community theater near you...THE WHIDBEY PLAYHOUSE Sept 2009.

I bet that will be a hoot for you to direct and a hoot for the audiences that will be able to see it. I know you'll have fun with it.

I've never heard of "Zombies from the Beyond." It does sound like fun! And I will google it. I love those old movies from the 50s about space aliens and spaceships. And I bet this play would remind me of them.

good luck with your upcoming season. Our playhouse season starts in April this year, and I'm anxious to see some live entertainment.

And best of luck on your Zombies venture.

That looks like a fun show. We are going to the RiverBelle on April 3 to see "Drop Dead" which I understand to be a murder mystery/comedy. We have enjoyed their productions and this time neighbors of ours will be going along, too.
