The King's Town Players regularly contribute entertaining culture to the community through stylized, passionate performances of material covering playwrights from Shakespeare to Steve Martin. Taking artistic liberties with its source, the King's Town Players re-imagine Romero's 1968 horrific tale, which first taught audiences about the walking dead's penchant for designer fashion. The vivid live stage-based story follows a gaggle of baffled humans trapped in a farmhouse as they work to hold down their fortress from the battling forces of brain eaters and the persistent hordes of time-share salesmen outside. During the Halloween spectacle's five-night residency, audience members discover the edge of their seat is either a vulnerable resting place or a comfortable perch to return to night after night.
