Improv Zombies from Hell at Napa Valley College

Improv Zombies from Hell at Napa Valley College

Think "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" meets "The Walking Dead"

November 13-22, 2015

 

Napa, Calif. (October 13, 2015) –Napa Valley Conservatory Theater presents seven nights of hilariously funny comedy in Improv Zombies from Hell, November 13-22 in the Studio Theater of the Napa Valley College Performing Arts Center.   Directed by Reed Martin, Napa Valley College theater instructor, the show is different every night so you'll want to come to every performance.

Imagine what you would get if you combined America's zombie obsession with comedy improvisation-- you would get eighty-five minutes of frighteningly funny theater. Developed in rehearsal by a cast of twelve student improvisers and incorporating audience suggestions, this show will leave you with laughing pains.   Think "Who's Line Is It Anyway?" meets "The Walking Dead" and you'll have an idea of the comic mayhem in Improv Zombies From Hell.  Director Reed Martin, who has been in rehearsal since mid-August with the cast, says, "We're dying to see you there!"

The cast is composed of Napa Valley College students in performing arts and other programs:  Daryl Roberts of Santa Ana; Nick Major, Aisha Rivera, Adrianna Soria, Rodrigo Contreras, Dan Graham, Emily Boulier, and Angel Aguilar of Napa; and Elijah Perry, Julius Fontanilla, Merrick Yra, and Francheza Suaiso of Vallejo.

Director Reed Martin is a graduate of UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, The Bill Kinnamon School of Professional Umpire Training, and Clown College. He has performed in 46 states and 11 foreign countries, including New Jersey. Prior to joining the Reduced Shakespeare Company in 1989, he was a clown with Ringling Brothers/Barnum & Bailey Circus. 

Tickets, $15 - $20, are on sale now at napavalleytheater.org, at the door, or call the Box Office at 707-256-7500.  Shows begin at 8 p.m. November 13 -22, except on Sundays when there is only one show at 2 p.m.
