Now I’m jealous of Canada with this live version of the classic original zombie movie Night of the Dead as a PLAY!!! What will they think of next in the great white north??? I remember seeing this B&W horror film as a kid and just being scared to death of the zombies. Who knew when George Romero decided to create a new horror genre that it would be a true classic and infect (get it infect with the zombie virus) our psyche for life??? Nothing is more scarier than the undead running around looking to eat our brains. Hmmm how can I get up to Toronto to see this live zombie horror treat???
AND BACK FROM THE DEAD BETTER THAN EVER:
George A. Romero’s
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD LIVE
At Theatre Passe Muraille
Oct 8-27, 2013
August 1, 2013. Toronto. In celebration of the OCTOBER 1ST, 45th anniversary of the premiere of George A. Romero’s cult hit, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, Co-Creators Christopher Harrison and Phil Pattison of Nictophobia Film are bringing the stage production of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD LIVE back from October Oct 8-27, 2013
at Theatre Passe Muraille, 16 Ryerson Avenue in Toronto. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD LIVE is directed by Christopher Bond (Evil Dead, The Musical, A Little Bit Zombie).
Tickets are available online at www.NIGHTOFTHELIVINGDEADLIVE.COM and at the NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD LIVE ticket launch party on Saturday, August 10 at Sp!n Toronto, 461 King St. W., Toronto, 8 – 10pm. Play free pong against zombies, cast and crew.
Told in the intimate setting of Toronto’s Theatre Passe Muraille, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD LIVE brings audiences into the famous 1960’s farmhouse where six strangers are trapped, surrounded by the undead. Ben (Hinds) has just saved Barbra (Phillips) who has witnessed the gruesome death of her brother. Delirious with grief, she is unable to help Ben who is trying to turn the house into a fortress when Harry (Nahrgang) and Tom (new cast member is Second City AlumAdam Cawley) burst up from the basement, announcing that Helen (Harry`s wife)(Boyer), Karen, their sick daughter who needs immediate help, and Judy (Tom`s girlfriend) are also taking shelter there. Tensions rise as they debate the best way to protect themselves against an onslaught of zombies, but they soon realize that it may not be possible to survive this night of the living dead.
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD LIVE is co-created by Christopher Harrison (Devil’s Night, The Man Who Loved Flowers) and Phil Pattison (Devil’s Night, The Man Who Loved Flowers), who are also producing the project with Marty Birthelmer (the upcoming The Mummers) through their production company, Nictophobia Films and executive produced by the legendary George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Day of the Dead, Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead and Survival of the Dead), Russ Streiner (best known as Johnny (“They’re coming to get you, Barbra”) in the original horror classic), and John A. Russo, co-author of Night of the Living Dead.
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD LIVE, is written by playwrights Trevor Martin (Patch Town, A Little Bit Zombie), Canadian Comedy Award winner Dale Boyer (Second City, “Live from the CenTre”) and Christopher Bond, with production design by Lindsay Anne Black (My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish-Wiccan Wedding), choreography by Stacey Maroske with sound design by Richard Feren, costume design by Claudia Kada (Mein Kempf, Evil Dead: The Musical), makeup design by Christina Spina, lighting by multi-award winner Michelle Ramsey (Helen’s Necklace, My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish-Wiccan Wedding), Special FX design by Carlos Henriques (Death Race, Witchslayer Gretl, Red: Werewolf Hunter) and music by Juno Award-winner, Mike Trebilcock (The Tenant, Reid Coolsaet: Road to London) and Jamie Lamb (Monkey Toast, Ken Kostick & Co.).

Humans, take solace in the fact that the zombie outbreak detected in the San Fernando Valley is contained… for the moment. The only thing that’s stopping the undead horde from over-running Los Angeles is a short subway ride.
Welcome boys and ghouls, to the 3rd Annual Subway Zombie Walk on Hollywood & Highland. Here’s the plan:
-Meet up at the North Hollywood Red Line Station @ 4:15PM
-Hop the Red Line to Hollywood & Highland @ 4:50PM
-Arrive at H&H Metro Station and take the escalator to the surface.
Please be on time (or early). Timing is a key factor and I’d rather you be safe than sorry. And getting a train full of zombies to unload at our stop should be quite a jarring experience for those caught unaware. We should arrive at H&H and start our lurch at 5PM. Our undead masses will flood out of the Hollywood & Highland Metro Station, up through the escalators, and out onto the Walk of Fame. From there, we lurch East towards Hollywood and Vine. Pretend that you’re dead, shamble, moan, hunger for brains. We move at a nice slow “Romero” speed. When we get to Hollywood & Vine, we’ll loop back around and be on the tourists at the Chinese Theatre by sundown. I’d like to see if we can get some group photos in the courtyard to Madame Tussaud’s before security asks us nicely to leave. At that point the walk is effectively over, and you can go about your business.
Our route from H&H can be seen here:
so in case we get separated, you all know the plan.

If you need help with how to zombify yourself copy and paste these links into your address bar:
Some basic rules on how to act around the rest of humanity since we don’t want to get into any real trouble:
1. Use the “haunted house” rule in that you are not to touch anyone. NO TOUCHING!
2. Do not attempt to scare anyone who is not a willing participant. If anyone is freaking out, turn and shamble in the opposite direction. AVOID CONFRONTATIONS!
3. STAY ON THE SIDEWALK unless crossing the street. When crossing, it’s OK to “break character” and cross quickly. Think fast “New Dawn of the Dead” zombies verses the slower “Old Dawn of the Dead” zombies when crossing the street. Blocking traffic is a crime and anyone doing so could be arrested. We’re not a parade.
4. No littering, destruction of property, or any other illegal activity. Let’s put on a good show. BE GOOD!
5. Please do not attempt to push your way into any business if you are not welcome. DON’T BE AN ASS!
*Golden Rule (Lame, I know, but it must be said): No one person is in charge here. We’re all individuals walking down the sidewalk. We’re each charged with looking out for ourselves.
Make sure that you’ve got money for subway fare. One way tix are $1.50, and day passes are $5. They take cash and card. Also, if afterwards you intend to go out drinking, keep in mind you might be asked for a picture ID at the bars and your zombie face might not match your picture ID. If you are refused entry, please understand the doorman is only doing his job. Also, the new season of Walking Dead premieres this night. You will have plenty of time to get cleaned up… or show up at a friends house in costume and creep them the hell out while you watch together.
This event is open to anyone and everyone. This works really well with large groups, so pass this invite on to your friends, your family, and your neighbors. Everyones invited!
