San Diego City College’s theater department will perform “Zombie Prom” at the Saville Theatre as the fall semester musical production starting Oct. 30.

“It is filled with laughter, great music, fabulous performances, and the perfect way to spend Halloween,” June Richards, “Zombie Prom” director and theater department professor, said via email.

According to the production description, “Zombie Prom” takes place in the 1950s at Enrico Fermi High. This musical is based on a girl name Toffee who falls for the class bad boy Jonny. Soon after turning into a zombie after going to a nuclear waste dump, Jonny is persistent to take Toffee to prom.

“The audience can expect a fun light-hearted show that pokes fun at society, but does it in a very charming way,” student actor Nelson Monroig said. “They can also look forward to catchy and fun songs that will be stuck in their heads by the end of the night.”

The leads for “Zombie Prom” will be Natalia Maggio playing the role of Delilah Strict, Monroig as Eddie Flagrante, Aaron Lugo as Jonny and Yasmin Ruiz as Toffee.

“It’s really vocally demanding for my character Toffee, Jonny and I sing way more then we talk,” Ruiz said. “It hasn’t been difficult to memorize, just vocally demanding so I have to really take care of my voice”

Performances will run every Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and every Sunday at 2 p.m. for three weeks. Tickets will be $10.

For more information about the musical, you can contact June Richards via email at jurichar@sdccd.edu.
