Night Of The Living Dead is the best annual Halloween tradition in Denver. Back for an eighth bloody year, the theme for 2016 is URBAN LEGENDS. Expect the classic story of seven people trapped in a farmhouse, surrounded by flesh-eating ghouls. One has the virus, and one has a gun and one has lost her mind. PLUS A lunatic hook man, spiders in a beehive and calls coming from inside the house! Urban legends live on in this exciting new adaptation of the beloved Romero classic that started it all.
Said Director/Adaptor Kris Hipps, “I’ve been a zombie fan since the first time I saw the original ‘Night of the Living Dead’ as a kid and immediately started thinking about ways to barricade our house in case of a zombie attack.” A unique aspect of the show is that all the action taking place inside the famous farmhouse is on stage, while all the action outside the house is projected onto an overhead screen, utilizing sequences re-created and shot by Paper Cat Films.
Featuring the talents of: Joseph Graves as Ben, Janine Kehlenbach as Barbara, Veronica Straight-Lingo as Judy, Seth Harris as Tom, Colin Roybal as Helen, Patrick Brownson as Harry, Deb Flomberg as Karen and Karin Carr, Kris Hipps, Matt Jaramillo, Matt Schultz, Sara Michael and Aran Peters as the hoard of zombies, reporters and other unsuspecting victims.
“this play’s still got a lot of heart, and you can’t help but empathize with the characters as zombies creep up on them unawares — till they get their hearts ripped out.”
“It’s more comedy than horror, and infinitely enjoyable for it.”
“The Halloween equivalent of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life.’ Except that everybody’s either dead or in danger of becoming so, in a most gruesome fashion.”
“A well produced, highly amusing and wonderful show.”
