Casting Call: Zomblet

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark….

Strange, supernatural sightings have been made around the old Elsinore Boneyard. Prince Hamlet – lamenting the o’er-hasty marriage of his mother and uncle – is not oblivious to these unnatural disturbances, but little does he realize that his father’s return heralds something far darker and SPOOKIER than he could ever imagine. Along with his fellow Danes, he sets out on what should be your run-of-the-mill tale of revenge… were it not for all the zombies.

This Halloween, The Villains are partnering with Terra Novella Theatre to present the world premiere of a new horror-comedy by Dan Bray. This reimagining of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy throws all your favourite characters in the blender and hits “goo-ify.” Hamlet, Ophelia, Horatio, and the whole gang – plus a special appearance by Christopher Marlowe’s favourite demonic duo – are all that stand in the way of an unholy plague bent on destroying Elsinore. Irreverent, intelligent, and very very cheeky, Zomblet is a TRICK for Shakespearean die-hards and a TREAT for Halloween fanatics. Playing Oct 22-27 at the The Bus Stop Theatre Co-op!
