The dead are walking as Moorpark College kicks off its 50th Anniversary celebration with this stage adaptation of the 1960’s classic tale of horror that first introduced zombies into the mainstream pop culture. Fallout from a satellite probe shot to Venus returns to Earth carrying a mysterious radiation that transforms the unburied dead into flesh-eating monsters. Seven people trapped in an isolated farmhouse, held hostage by the ravenous ghouls, begin to turn on each other as the dead encroach. “Night of the Living Dead” is a gripping, terror-filled play that brings all the fright of the cult classic to life. This blend of thrilling horror laced with touches of black humor envelops the audience in the action and unfolds into a shocking theatrical ending.
