East Bank Theater says Zombies of the world, Unite! Performances Oct 22, 23 & 24, 8 pm

A Lagniappe fundraiser for East Bank Theatre and The Company Repertory Theatre has been announced by Richard Folmer.

Zombies of the world unite! Tis a stage adaptation of the classic George Romero/John Russo horror film.

The East Bank Theatre and The Company Repertory Theatre, located at the Bossier Arts Council, have reportedly seen "zombies" in the upstairs theatre after dark. The sightings have taken place during recent rehearsals for "Night of the Living Dead: The Play" which features local actors.

"I didn't believe in zombies. But these things we have been seeing... they just make the hair stand up on the back of your neck," says Artistic Director, Richard Folmer, "not to mention the moaning and shrieking... I haven't been this scared in years!"

Although the zombies are unable to speak, one ghastly figure did manage to scribble some information on a sheet of paper. From what the staff can make out, it seems as though there will be an entire invasion of zombies on October 22, 23, and 24 at 8:00pm.

Admission will be $20 and they plan to take all those not in costume captive. Guests are encouraged to come dressed as a zombie, ghoul, goblin, or favorite Halloween character. There will even be a "CANDY BAR" for your sweet tooth! For more information about experiencing this invasion, call 318.741.8310.

"I will definitely be wearing a costume... I am really anxious to see what these zombies have in store for us," states Kelly Warner, Executive Director of the Bossier Arts Council. "We have heard them making awful noises upstairs in the theatre and they seem to be getting anxious about their so-called invasion. This will be interesting..."
