Frightfully Good Theater!

Enjoy Halloween? How about zombies? We have a treat for you, then: this weekend only, our youth ensemble tackles Shakespeare and the undead with....

ZOMBIE CAESAR
by William Shakespeare, adapted & directed by Shana Bestock

Caesar used to be the leader everyone wanted, but now his huge ego threatens to become maniacal. His trusted advisors decide to kill him, inciting the citizens to riot in support of a new regime led by Caesar's one true friend, the noble Brutus. However, Caesar won't stay fully dead - he shows up as a zombie, scaring the citizens, plaguing Brutus, and wreaking havoc. Will Brutus be able to restore peace, or will zombie-driven chaos consume the country?
All performances FREE!
(donations to the youth scholarship fund happily accepted at the door)

October 29 @ 7pm
October 30 @ 2pm & 7pm
October 31 @ 2pm


Plus a special treat: The Roosevelt Thriller Club!
The Roosevelt High School Thriller Club will make a special appearance at the October 30th, 2pm matinee. The club is a group of teenage zombies who arise from the dead every day for school (and return to their graves on the weekend). In September and October, they learn Michael Jackson's famous Thriller dance and perform at community centers and festivals, culminating in their participation in Thrill The World, a worldwide simultaneous Thriller dance. Their favorite activities include devouring brains, groaning intelligibly and texting.

Come in costume to the Halloween performance for a trick or treat!
