FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

October 15, 2003

Zombies Invade the Fine Arts Center 

Zombies From The Beyond, an Off-Broadway hit of the 1995-96 season, receives its regional premiere at THE FINE ARTS CENTER, produced by the Artists Cooperative Theatre for a VERY LIMITED RUN!!  With music, lyrics, and book written by James Valcq, Zombies affectionately evokes many facets of 1950s pop culture:  B-movie musicals and B-science fiction films, TV programs, commercials, and popular music.  Above all, however, Zombies From The Beyond is a nostalgic valentine to a way of life that perhaps never was:  the fervid patriotism of the Eisenhower-era postwar boom years.  The play celebrates our collective joy as a nation feeling we were invincible and infallible.  The key can be found in the song The American Way.  The combination of blatant aggression in the lyric and confident optimism in the music is the shows strongest expression of the dichotomy that was the 1950s:  the undercurrent of fear and paranoia roiling just beneath the sunny surface of prosperity and normalcy.  The science-fiction films of the decade were the perfect outlet for their audiences because these fears were played out in the safe realm of fantasy.  Zombies is clever, campy fun with a toe-tapping score;  a cross between The Day The Earth Stood Still and Leave It To Beaver.
