Teenage love will never die in the Lewis and Clark Tiger Drama spring performance of “Zombie Prom” beginning at 7 p.m. April 26 in the LC auditorium.
The comedic musical is set in a 1950s high school and tells the story of the forbidden teen romance between Toffee, played by Laura Chamberlain, and rebel Jonny, played by Mario Zavala. The lovebirds declare their feelings for each other, and then Toffee is banned from seeing Jonny by her mother (Megan Harbaugh), her father (Mica Pointer), and the wicked principal, Miss Delilah Strict (Phoibe Purcell).
Devastated, Jonny throws himself into the town’s nuclear power plant and returns as a teenage nuclear zombie. But, Jonny’s not out to hunt the living; he goes back to school to profess his love to Toffee, go to his senior prom and graduate.
Miss Strict refuses to allow the zombie rebel to return to school and even threatens to cancel the prom – until a local newspaper reporter steps in to fight for Jonny’s cause. Will Toffee take Jonny back? Will there be a prom?
Other members of the cast include Eric McGaughey as Eddie Flagrante; Amy McDowell as Ramona Merengue; Kehly Hendrick as Candy; Maddie Rasmussen as Ginger; Keyonna Knight as Coco; Max Chumov as Josh; Jesse Ward as Jake; and Danny Palomba as Joey.
