While the Zombies From Beyond lumber out of Theater LaB Houston May 28, the Off-Broadway styled company ends their 1999-2000 "Camp Alamo" season, a celebration of all that is campy in the theatre. Zombies, a musical satire of 1950s mores and movies, began performances April 13.
Jim Phillips directs the Cold War-era tuner, in which Milwaukee finds itself invaded by the buxom alien beauty Zombina, whose plan is to cart away the city's he-men to repopulate her planet. James Valcq wrote the book, music and lyrics.
Randy Boatwright, Joanne Bonasso, Scott Bonasso, Greg Coles, Julia Kay, Jerry Miller and Holli Golden star.
Tickets are $22-$20. The Theater LaB Houston is located at 1706 Alamo. For tickets, call the box office at (713) 868 7516. Theater LaB Houston is on the web at http://www.theaterlabhouston.com.
