Zombie Prom

Zombie Prom is a girl-loves-ghoul rock-n-roll off-Broadway musical, set in the atomic 1950s to a tuneful selection of original songs in the style of 50s hits. The Theatre Company of Saugus (TCS) is pleased to present Zombie Prom as the 2022 edition in its ongoing series of Halloween-season shows. Performances are the last two weekends of October.

At Enrico Fermi High School, 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 and 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 latest great freak show.

Praise for Zombie Prom from the media include: 

  • “A musical blast! Fun for the whole nuclear family!” said the New York Daily News. 
  • “Don’t miss it! Slicker than Grease, smoother than Rocky Horror, bigger and funnier than Little Shop of Horrors!” said WOR. 
  • “Exhilarating! Sharp, spiffy, brighter, and better than both The Rocky Horror Show and Grease put together. It has musical wit and breathtakingly catchy, rich melodies.” said the New York Law Journal.

With Music by Dana P. Rowe, and Book and Lyrics by John Dempsey. Based on a story by John Dempsey and Hugh Murphy. Zombie Prom is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals: www.concordtheatricals.com.
