Loras College Theatre Arts Course Offers Free Performance

In a new experiential and accelerated May-term course, Loras College undergraduate students are introduced to the history and development of theatre, canon of major plays and scripts, as well as the many varied arts and professions of theatre. At the conclusion of this hands-on, crash course initiation, Loras’ Theatre Arts students present 10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse, a short comedy by Don Zolidis, Thursday and Friday, May 23 and 24 at 7:30 PM.

It’s the end of the world and hordes of rampaging zombies are about to kill you. What do you do? Try your hand at kung fu against the undead? Attempt to reason with creatures that would rather eat brains than use them? Turn to this handy and hilarious guide to survive the apocalypse.

The production is supported by the Loras Players. Established in 1910, the Loras Players are the oldest, continuously operating theatre troupe west of the Mississippi. Currently in its 114th season, students of all majors get hands-on, practical experience in this multi-disciplinary extracurricular program.

10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse runs Thursday and Friday, May 23 and 24 at 7:30 PM. in St. Joseph Auditorium, Hoffmann Hall on the Loras College campus. Admission is free; donations to support the Loras Players are welcome.
