ZOMBIE BEACH: THE MUSICAL is a surf rock musical that tells a timeless story of young love. Also, there are zombies.
Freddie and Beebee are enjoying their 1960s summer vacation when they find a lost girl out on the beach at night. They have no idea that she’s here from beyond the stars, the intention of raising the dead and enslaving the living. Before they know it, our love-struck heroes find themselves in the middle of a zombie invasion of Earth!
If you think that sounds suspiciously like if BEACH BLANKET BINGO had a baby with NIGHT OF the THE LIVING DEAD, you’d be correct.
Imagine if The Beach Boys wrote the songs for THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW. Imagine if The Cramps wrote the songs for GREASE. Imagine if BYE BYE BIRDIE was made by Alice Cooper. Now imagine that the musicians and performers involved at every level were among the very best talents Tampa Bay has to offer.
As featured in Humans of New York, NYC playwright John Cecil is a product of Pinellas County Center for the Art’s theatre program. Born and raised in the Tampa Bay Area, John is coming home with his mashup of the 1960s pop art, rock music, and horror movies that have entertained generations.
