9/16 - 10/1 Zombie Prom

This girl loves ghoul rock and roll Off Broadway musical is set in the atomic 1950s at Enrico Fermi High, where the law is laid down by a zany, tyrannical principal. Pretty senior Toffee has fallen for the class bad boy. Family pressure forces her to end the romance, and he charges off on his motorcycle to the nuclear waste dump. He returns glowing and determined to reclaim Toffee's heart. He still wants to graduate, but most of all he wants to take Toffee to the prom. The principal orders him to drop dead while a scandal reporter seizes on him as the freak du jour. History comes to his rescue while a tuneful selection of original songs in the style of 50s hits keeps the action rocking across the stage.

"A musical blast!  Fun for the whole nuclear family!" - New York Daily News

"Don't miss it!  Slicker than "Grease", smoother than "Rocky Horror", bigger and funnier than "Little Shop of Horrors!" - WOR

"Exhilarating! Sharp, spiffy, brighter and better crafted than both "The Rocky Horror Show" and "Grease" put together.  It has musical wit and breathtakingly catchy, rich melodies. - New York Law Journal

"Zombie Prom is a breath of freshness and vitality, an exhilarating sign of spring and renewed life in today's musical landscape of spectacles and revivals." - Martin Gottfried, The New York Law Journal

"Zombie Prom (a toxic schlock opera), a feel-good, user-friendly musical comedy (with) its witty, ribald script and clever-tuneful songs..." - The Miami Herald

"The music by Dana P. Rowe and lyrics by John Dempsey are full-bore teen anthems from start to finish, sung by a group of full-voiced singers who slalom down (and up) every melodic curve." 
- The Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

"ZOMBIE PROM: Kooky, creepy, campy fun...Packed with soupy mock-'50s sock hop tunes and more teen-age turmoil than a John Waters film..." - Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel

"This is pure entertainment with a rock 'n roll beat.  The sound is polished, the lyrics are strong...Trash becomes treasure when Rowe and Dempsey reflect on contemporary pop culture." - Key West, Solares Hill

Music by Dana P. Rowe

Book and Lyrics by John Dempsey

Based on a story by John Dempsey and Hugh Murphy.
