Zombie Shakespeare

October 3, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm



Forsooth, it is THE event of the season!

Come sip, nibble, laugh, and shake your weary bones among friends at a very special joint fundraiser for Nashville Education, Community, and Arts Television and The Nashville Shakespeare Festival—perfectly timed to kick off the Halloween season.

Some of Nashville’s top Shakespearean actors will tickle both brains and funny bones in iconic Shakespearean scenes cleverly reworked and presented in full zombie special effects facial prosthetics and makeup by NECAT Artist-in-Residence Rick Prince – Artist​ from the SyFy channel show Face Off​, assisted by his students from NECAT classes.

Be not frighted, gentle supporters.

Your glass shall be as full as your heart—

We forthink it so, but come and see—

—Do words of undying love fall trippingly on the tongue for Romeo and Juliet when they themselves be undying?

You may find Macbeth, his Lady, Caesar himself, among many others lumbering through the studio with an unending hunger—to entertain you.

To cap off the evening, our undead thespians relinquish the stage to a LIVE roof-raising, bone-jiggling, jazz funk band—Damn Dirty Apes—in full special effects makeup by artist Jimmy Stinson in raucous homage to the original Planet of the Apes.
