THE STORY: The Zombie Apocalypse has arrived and everybody’s hungry. Our teenage hero, Little Pete, has his hands full. Forced into going hunting with his abusive father and bully older brother when he’d rather be online, he also has to deal with alcoholism, illegal drugs, gun control (or lack thereof), racism, conspiracy theories, human sexuality… all of these and zombies too! A musical spoof celebrating the classic zombie lore and the original George Romero films, this play combines comedy and social commentary with fifteen original tunes, loads of zombie shooting, horrified townsfolk, and plenty of live ones to munch on. THE ZOMBIES: A MUSICAL SPOOF! Offers lots of blood, gore, horror, and the delicate feeding rituals of the undead. The perfect recipe for fun.
“Max Resto has a great grasp of and obvious appreciation for the genre. His score is professional and has a number of fine comic and dramatic songs.” —Theater Scene.

“Overall, THE ZOMBIES: A MUSICAL SPOOF! is fitful entertainment for those in the mood for a cheesy horror movie spoof.” —Woman Around Town.
