Playmakers Civic Theatre has begun rehearsals for an important play by Ben Muir, “How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse RELOADED.” Director Douglas Braun describes the play as “essential information” for disaster preparedness — and you know what disaster he’s talking about!
The talented cast has been highly trained in Zombie lore and is anxious to pass this needed information to you. It will be presented on Thursday through Saturday, Aug. 12-14, at 8 p.m. at Playmakers Civic Theatre, 604 West 6th St., Port Clinton.
Tickets are available at the theatre box office on show nights or by calling 419-734-5044 beginning Thursday, July 22.
“A Zombie Apocalypse following so close to a pandemic means you have little time to prepare,” said Assistant Directer Peggy McConnell. “You have to be brain-dead to miss this opportunity.”
Jeff Bugbee appears as Dr. Dale Seslick, an accomplished Professor of Zombie history and behavioral tacts. Zombie eradication became the professor’s life work after a Zombie destroyed his flamboyance of pink flamingos.
Karsha Schermbeck plays Judy O’Dea, the professor’s intelligent and highly efficient assistant. Judy has been supporting Zombie Survival seminars for several years and has probably saved more lives than aspirin.
Margaret Helbing plays Donna Straite, a noted survivalist who went from living on berries and twigs to slaying Zombies after encountering a Zombie infestation in Washington, D.C. The Zombies, reports Donna, passed themselves off as politicians.
Destiny Wallace plays Trisha Granger, a young intern to Professor Seslick who is in her first year of Zombie studies. Trisha is thoroughly fascinated by Zombies, puppies and clouds.
