We just cant seem to get enough of zombies these days. The decomposed fleshly fiends are always popping up somewhere, whether its 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 hes a little less attractive than before, hes 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.
