Zombies arrived at the Missouri Valley College campus for comedy and drama. This week, Wednesday through Saturday at 7 p.m. in the Morris Experimental Theatre (MET), students are performing their version of “Zombies from Uranus.”
The play features graduating seniors including Crystal Mann, Ivalea Wright, Tommy Waller, Sulma Caballero, Bradford Scott, Rebecca Whitsett, Rachel LaGrou, and Zack McKinney.
Director Wade Hughes, Theatre associate professor, said the show is a culmination of
the work of more than 30 MVC students, five faculty members, and one professional stage manager.
Hughes said that contrary to the title of the play, it is a poignant exploration of racism, bigotry, intolerance, and hate. Students were involved in the creation of the script with hours of rehearsing. For some student actors, it is their first play at MVC. The play contains adult content.
