Directed by David Ruttura with musical direction by Matt Hinkley, the cast will include Anthony Chatmon II (Hadestown), Robi Hager (Doctor Zhivago), Savy Jackson (Bad Cinderella), Josh Lamon (The Prom), Stephany Mora (Dreamgirls), Mary Page Nance (A Beautiful Noise), Nic Rouleau (The Book of Mormon), Kyle Selig (Mean Girls), and Lauren Zakrin (Once Upon a One More Time).
Get a sneak listen to the score below, as Nick Rashad Burroughs (Tina, Moulin Rouge!) performs "Last Stop."
With a book and score by Canfield, the musical follows Shelly Dinkley, a gutsy news reporter who believes zombies are terrorizing her small town. After she is saved from an attack by a zombie who calls himself Zombie6, sparks start to fly between the two as Eve discovers there's more to this decaying hero than just his rotting limbs.
The limited engagement will also have lighting design by Tyler Micoleau and musical arrangements by Taylor Peckman. The general manager is LDK Productions. ALIVE! is executive-produced by Lisa Dozier Shacket and co-produced by Barbara Chubb.
Show times are October 8 at 8:30 PM, October 9 at 7 PM and 9 PM, and October 15-16 at 7 PM and 9 PM. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased by visiting AlivetheZombieMusical.com.
