PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Zombies invade, lead by their buxom leader, Zombina. They show no mercy, and will take prisoners (but only the men). Set in 1955, with the Cold War and space race paranoia, we will transport you to the fictional Milwaukee Space Center where the staff is all abuzz at the arrival of rocket scientist Trenton Corbett. The budding romance of Trenton and Mary—the daughter of Space Center commander Major Malone—is jeopardized when a flying saucer lands in Milwaukee. The craft is piloted by Zombina, a buxom alien aviatrix bent on procuring he-specimens to re-populate her planet.

Alli Simpson leads the cast as Zombina, under the direction of DeWayne Morgan and musical direction of Annie Cook. They take us from the first sighting of Zombina's space craft through the citizen's attempts to protect the male half of the species.

Can Mary uphold her lady-like demeanor while using her facile intelligence to save Milwaukee from a Red Menace and a flying saucer invasion? Can plucky delivery boy Billy ever get secretary Charlene to notice his tap-dancing charms?? Can the stalwart men of Milwaukee survive brainwashing by a musical menace from another world who gives new meaning to "stratospheric" soprano??? Taking its cue from pulp movies popular at the time, ZOMBIES FROM THE BEYOND brings the 1950s nostalgically and hilariously to life with a tuneful, toe-tapping score.
