Zombie Prom

We just can’t seem to get enough of zombies these days. The decomposed fleshly fiends are always popping up somewhere, whether it’s in film, comics and now ... stageplays. Matthews Performing Arts Center is taking to the grave with performances of the musical Zombie Prom this week. Based off the 1950s comic book and musical-made-film, the story line follows a high school couple banned from seeing one another. Like most love stories of these types, something dramatic is bound to happen. In this case a highstrung heart-achin’ fella rides his motorcycle into a nuclear plant. Trouble is, instead of resting in peace he emerges from his tomb undead. And though he’s a little less attractive than before, he’s more determined then ever to go to the prom with his girl. $10. April 8-9, 8 p.m.; April 10, 2 p.m. Matthews Community Center, 100 E. McDowell St., Matthews. 704-846-8343. www.matthewsplayhouse.com.
