Right across the railroad tracks is Downtown Fullerton. Many fabulous restaurants within walking distance. We ate at the Greek place, left my car parked in that lot then just walked over the bridge to the theater. So convenient.

Description

Back by popular demand, The Maverick Theater’s original adaptation of _Night of the Living Dead _returns to the stage. The dead are walking, and hunger for human flesh. Six strangers holed up in a rural Pennsylvania farmhouse and battle constant attacks from dead locals who have been brought back to life by a mysterious radiation. What play could be better suited for the stage during the Halloween season than Night of the Living Dead, the cult classic B-movie that launched the “zombie film” genre.
