What does it take to make a scary good play?
Blood and gore, zombies, rock music and a group of kids working together to scare the heck out of the audience.
"It's a play to die for," according to Jack Martin, who plays a zombie in the performance.
The hour-long play focuses on seven people trapped inside an abandoned house while flesh-eating zombies terrorize them from all sides. Due to the content matter it is rated pg-13 and may not be appropriate for young children.
Gabby St. Onge said the performance has an air of mystery at the high school. "It gives us something to look forward to - scaring everybody," she said.
More than 40 students are in the cast as well as 15 students working with sound, lighting and set design. And students in the art department worked on the program.
"It's a huge show," said Director Stephanie Holland, who also teaching English Literature at the high school. "The students designed it, built it, and lit and sounded it. I was only their guide."
Holland chose to accommodate a larger cast for the production and so the roles are split into two casts on different performances. Kevin Kulas and Paul Armata play Ben, the leader for survival while Emily Brooks and Kelly Costello play the distraught Barbara, the female lead.
Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.
