“They’re coming to get you Barbara!” That is one of best known lines from the classic 1968 zombie film, The Night of the Living Dead.

You’ll have a chance to see the stage adaptation of George Romero’s cult-classic film, at State Fair Community College, later this month.

According to SFCC’s website, ‘Fall-out from a satellite probe, shot to Venus, returns to Earth carrying a mysterious radiation that transforms the unburied dead into flesh-eating zombies. Seven people trapped in an isolated farmhouse, held hostage by the ravenous ghouls, begin to turn on each other as the dead encroach. A gripping terror-filled play that brings all the fright of the cult classic to life. This blend of thrilling horror, laced with dark humor, envelops the audience in the action and unfolds into a shocking theatrical ending.’

The Night of the Living Dead stage production will take place in the Thompson O’Sullivan Studio Theatre at State Fair Community College, February 23-26, and again March 2-4.

There will be a dinner theatre at 6:30 on February 25, and a matinee viewing at 2:00 on February 26.

The show begins at 7:30, all other nights.

The stage adaptation of The Night of the Living Dead is directed by SFCC Theatre instructor, Eric Yazell. Tickets can be purchased here.
