We're lurching & shuffling to the New York International Fringe Festival in August 2012! (At least with your support). @LoveDeathBrains
These zombies need your help... Travel, housing, and realistically gory makeup all have costs associated with them, and any support you can give will benefit new and original theater from Madison, WI.

A well-meaning scientist brings his son, James, to a secretive community where things are not what they seem. Dogged by conspiracies and government agents, "Z-Town's" mysteries begin to unravel. James finds himself battling Zombies for his humanity and his future.
Yes. It was originally produced (to sold out houses over a 3-week run) in Madison WI at the Bartell Theatre in September 2011 under the title "Z-Town: The Zombie Musical." The writers, director, producers, production team and cast are all from Madison, WI.
A few reasons. One, when we decided to submit the show to the NY Fringe, we remembered that one of the past Fringe breakouts was "Urinetown." So we felt we didn't want people to think were were copying that show's name. Two, the version we are taking to the Fringe has been reworked to fit into the Fringe format. As a result, we've tightened up the script, reworked some songs, and our director is adding a creative "musical meme" theme. We felt this was enough to make the Fringe version unique and reflects that this is a new show from the 2011 version seen by sold out crowds in Madison.
Yes, the musical is a "PG-13" level, depending on how grisly you would do the make-up. The cast is 16 (adjustable) and runs about 2 hours. Plot wise, think Romeo & Juliet set in a cemetery. There is no sex/nudity, limited profanity (which may be edited) and the violence level is at the discretion of your production. We found that teens especially loved the production.
Yes. The original full-length 2-act "Z-Town: The Zombie Musical" script is available. Contact the producers for details.
We would be open to discussing adapting "Z-Town" as a movie or TV series. Please contact the producers for more information. We will be holding some meetings in New York in August 2012 during our Fringe Festival run.
Yep, it's been recorded and is being prepared. Our backers will get a free song before the album is released.
