Zombies on Stage: ‘Night of the Living Dead’ at SCC September 27 – October 1

Zombie in Graveyard

St. Charles Community College’s Center Stage Theatre will present Night of the Living Dead September 27 through October 1, in the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building theater on the SCC campus. The play is appropriate for middle school aged students and above.   

Fallout from a satellite probe shot to Venus returns to Earth carrying a mysterious radiation that transforms the unburied dead into flesh-eating zombies. Seven people trapped in an isolated farmhouse, held hostage by ravenous ghouls with an attitude, begin to turn on each other as the dead encroach. This blend of thrilling horror laced with touches of black humor envelops the audience in the action and unfolds into a shocking theatrical ending.

The cast includes Josh Mundschenk, Adrienne Buhse, Travis McIntyre, Nate Nguepsi, DJ Pieper, Chandler Spradling, Laura Gibbons, Charlie Rosser, Jake Decker, Luke Davis, Jordan Hendrix, Leah Tharp, Nick Lane, Nick Elieff, Anthony Jones, Jim Dishian, Nicholar Goad, Connor Quigley, Michelle Moffat-Johnson, Rachel Anthonis, AJ Krampe, Cassondra Tompkins, Taylour Moemster, Amanda May and Sophie Rosser.

The crew includes Tracy Bono, director; Jeff Roop, technical director, and Jessy Boyd, costume designer. 

 The show will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, September 27-30; at 10 a.m. on Thursday, September 28; and 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 1. Tickets are free to SCC students with ID, or $8 general admission and $6 seniors, veterans and students. The campus is located at 4601 Mid Rivers Mall Drive in Cottleville.
