Westerville North High School thespians will perform Night of the Living Dead at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 22; Friday, October 23; and Saturday, October 24.  Tickets cost $6 each.  The play was written by Lori Allen Ohm, and is based on the original film by George Romero and John Russo. 

Fall out from a satellite probe shot to Venus returns to Earth carrying a mysterious radiation that transforms the unburied dead into flesh-eating zombies.  Seven people trapped in an isolated farmhouse, held hostage by the ravenous ghouls, begin to turn on each other as the dead encroach.  This gripping, terror-filled monochromatic play brings all the fright of the cult classic to life.  A blend of thrilling horror laced with touches of black humor envelops the audience in the action and unfolds into a shocking theatrical ending.
