In a future where both theatre and zombies are exiled fro Earth, Planet “Z” has become a home not only for the flesh-eating zombies but for all the old cast off musical sets. A spaceship crashes on Planet “Z," and when a space-teen and zombie fall in love, the interplanetary implications can only be imagined – or beautifully told with ’80s rock!

Don’t miss this zany, highly original, sci-fi rock musical written and directed by Jon Tracy. Featuring all your favorite hits from the ‘80s including Michael Jackson, Iggy Pop, Madonna and Pat Benatar, Planet “Z” is where The Forbidden Planet meets_ Rocky Horror Picture Show_ to discuss Twilight – we’re just saying – you’ve never seen anything like this musical before!

Written and Directed by Jon Tracy

Music Direction by Phil Gorman

Choreography by Kimberly Dooley
