They will at Menace of the Morgue, an original musical written by Cranston native John McKenna — and it's playing on Fridays and Saturdays at Artists' Exchange through the end of the month. The first show is Friday, Oct. 4.
Described as a "campy rock 'n' roll multi-media love poem paying homage to 1960s psychedelic horror cinema," Menace of the Morgue is a surefire way to get into the Halloween spirit.
The performance is a "zomebedy," and it will be performed by members of the Marley Bridges Theatre Company in collaboration with Artists' Exchange. Not sure what it could possibly be about? Read this, from a press release:
"The peace between humans and zombies is tenuous. The technology they use to communicate is
awkward. An innocent teen, daughter of a famous scientist, falls for a boy from the wrong side of
the grave. Lust, drugs, gore, bigotry, and wrong science fill this high-energy show that is perfect for
the Halloween season and theater enthusiasts."
Tickets are $10 in advance and $14 at the door. Tickets can be bought at www.artists-exchange.org or by calling 401-490-9475.
