“Night of the Living Dead” Rises at Lewis University

Lewis University's Heritage Theatre Company (HTC) proudly presents "Night of the Living Dead" by Mark Landon Smith, adapted for the stage from George A. Romero’s 1968 cult classic film. Performances will be held in the Studio Theatre, located on the second floor in the Oremus Fine Arts Center, and accessible through the Wadsworth Art Gallery or by elevator. "Night of the Living Dead" is a parody homage that invigorates the horror genre and promises to keep you laughing while on the edge of your seat. The plot: a space probe from Venus carries mysterious radiation to Earth and begins to transform people into flesh-eating zombies. Seven strangers are trapped in an abandoned farmhouse and begin to turn against each other while hungry ghouls with attitude (and an appetite) await them outside.   [MORE]  [PHOTO]  [COMMENTS(0)
