ANNOUNCING SEASON 24!

ZOMBIE BROADS
by Corrbette Pasko and Sara Sevigny
Directed by Jan Blixt
Opens October 21, 2016
Closes November 26, 2016

Maxine and Marco, and their book club ‘The Zombie Broads’, have all the weaponry and knowledge they’ll ever need for the zombie uprising. Their daughter, Shelby, is trained for the worst, but would really like to just get a cell phone and date her secret boyfriend. Besides, zombies won’t happen. It’s not like a scientist is accidentally gonna do anything stupid, right? By the way, you smell really good…delicious even…you should probably run.

This is the story of Marion Kroft, an aging former child film actor turned variety show star in the 1950s who is desperate to get back into pictures. When a new young dancer comes into her life they become fast friends and a smash comedy duo, but the truth behind their partnership is questionable.
