News   Original Off-Broadway Cast Recording of Zombie Prom Now Available on ITunes
The original Off-Broadway cast recording of Zombie Prom, which premiered in March 1996 at the Variety Arts Theatre, is now available for purchase on iTunes.

Zombie Prom has music by Dana P. Rowe, book and lyrics by John Dempsey and is based on a story by Dempsey and Hugh M. Murphy.

The recording features the talents of Karen Murphy (Delilah Strict), Jessica-Snow Wilson (Toffee), Cathy Trien (Coco), Natalie Toro (Ginger), Rebecca Rich (Candy), Marc Lovci (Joey), Stephen Bienskie (Jake), Jeff Skowron (Josh), Richard Roland (Jonny) and Richard Muenz (Eddie Flagrante).

Zombie Prom, according to press notes, is set in "the Nuclear 1950s at Enrico Fermi High, where sweet and proper Toffee falls for class bad boy Jonny. When family pressure forces an end to the romance, Jonny jumps on his motorcycle and speeds to the local power plant where he throws himself into the nuclear waste dump. Although buried at sea in a metal casket, Toffee’s undying love penetrates all barriers and rejuvenates Jonny who returns to EFHS as a green-faced, toxic zombie bent on graduating with his class and taking his dream girl Toffee to the prom. Tyrannical principal Delilah Strict has different ideas and bars the goo-covered, cadaverous teen from rejoining his class. The school’s discrimination policy prompts sensationalist journalist Eddie Flagrante to expose the school’s intolerance, bringing him face to face with the intractable Miss Strict. When principal and reporter realize their shared past, true to his name, Flagrante rekindles the flame which softens the inflexible Strict."
