Zombies Win Clapper Award

clapper awardThe San Gabriel Valley Theater Assoc. has just awarded our Zombie Players Association the 2015 Clapper Award of Excellence for its annual series of Halloween productions.

Accepting the award, our founder, playwright, and producer, Val Luten.  His acceptance speech surprised the gathering, “We don’t want your stinking award.  We want your fresh brains.”  The audience of over 200 attendees gave him a standing ovation.  It seems the crowd respected Luten for ‘putting it to the man’.  They all agreed that we need more fresh brains with new ideas to promote live theater.

The above is the product of a delusional zombie mind, although it does identify the problem of theater failing to use imagination to attract a younger audience that is addicted to electronic/social media.  They are missing the live theater experience; the real 3D.

Broadway Bound

Zombie Memorial Players production “Romeo and Juliet at Zombie High School”, has drawn interest from two important Broadway production companies.

The 20 minute musical comedy will be repeated every half hour from 6:30 to 9:30PM, Halloween night only.

An expanded version of the play is being considered for an off-Broadway tryout. Those in the know tell us that this could be the next big show, “Zombies on Broadway.”

This Halloween night may be your only chance to see the original.  Better yet, this special family show is free, no tickets needed.  The show is rated F.N.G., Funny Not Gory.  Join us at the Sierra Madre Playhouse for brain-tingling excitement!

Disclaimer: Without direct contact from New York, the officials at the playhouse cannot confirm the above story, but it can’t help but confirm that the theater’s new commitment to the highest quality, American plays has made the Sierra Madre Playhouse, pound for pound, the best theater in Los Angeles.

Zombie Attacks Homeowner

When arrested by officer Whitey Whitehead of the Sierra Madre Police Dept., the livid, overexcited, zombie explained, “I saw him watering his lawn on Tuesday instead of Wednesday.”

In response, the homeowner said, “My lawn was turning brown:  I guess I just panicked.”  To which, the officer Whitehead replied, “Brown is the new green.”

Zombie Virus Cure

Center for Disease Control announced today that a vaccine developed by the Zombie Research Facility has ended the threat of the Zombie virus.

It must be noted that this is the third such announcement in the past 5 years.  The first 2 proved to be overly optimistic in that they only protected vegetarians and all humans age 95 or older.  The spokesman, dressed in a full hazmat suit, told reporters that the public still needs to wear bite-proof helmets when leaving their fortified homes.
