Singing Zombies Come to Cranston

Get into the Halloween spirit with this zombie themed muscial


An innocent teen falls for a boy from the wrong side of town. These star-crossed lovers try to be together against the odds — cue drugs, gore and drama. We’ve all heard it before. But this time the boy is a zombie and the girl is the daughter of a famous scientist. Now we’re talking.

Head to Theater 82 this month for an original zombie musical, Menace of the Morgue. Written and directed by Cranston’s John McKenna and presented by the Marley Bridges Theater Company in collaboration with the Artists’ Exchange, Menace of the Morgue is a zombie love story paying homage to 1960’s psychedelic horror films.

Sounds a little too intense for the kids? The theater will also be performing a shorter, family-friendly version, Doctor Menace’s Family Variety Hour of Zombies. You’d have to be (un)dead not to go!

Theater 82. 82 Rolfe Square, Cranston. October 4-26. Friday & Saturday at 8pm. Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 at the door. Visit their website to purchase tickets.
