On Sunday, we begin a tradition in Shirlington. Silver Spring has one. DC has one. Now Virginia has one! The First Annual Shirlington Zombie Walk will begin on Sunday, Halloween Night at 9pm. We will meet at Ali's Bar in the lobby of Signature Theatre. Come to the sky bridge entrance on the second floor and bang on the door to get in. There will be drink specials on "Zombies" - my special recipe called the "Shirlington Zombie" - Gold rum, clear rum, agave nectar, pineapple juice, orange juice, amaretto, lime juice, triple sec and sour mix - $9 a drink. after we have hoarded our legions (and protest posters with blood spatters, no words, are recommended), we will walk to Capital City Brewing Company, have a round there, and work our way to Bungalow Billiards. Once finished, the final act of zombiedom will commence; we will walk en mass to Harris Teeter and purchase raw meat. Bring your cameras especially for this facet of the night. This tradition will be kept alive each year, so let's make the start of this one special. Bring your best zombie self, prizes awarded to the top 2 zombies.

Only hours remaining...

Only 4 hours remain in our Kickstart fundraising event! It is unbelievable to me that about one month ago we started this fund raising page on a whim. 30 days later, we have more than reached our goal, and are inches away from reaching $10,000!!! There is still time to donate to the show, if you can find it in your heart and your budget.
We have been having some music rehearsals here and there, and things are sounding amazing. I am so excited to share this piece with an audience on Monday, October 18th at Kensington Arts Theatre.
To donate (and you only have under 4 hours left to!) go to THIS LINK.
Thank you all, and more details will follow soon!

Chicago opens at Kensington Arts Theatre on October 8th, directed by my friend, Diego Prieto, and starring another friend, Dani Stoller as Roxie, who also will be appearing as Judy in our reading of NightoftheLivingDead the musical on October 18th. Please check it out! Dani is nothing short of amazing! Here is their press release:

Opening Oct. 8th: Chicago – Cabaret Tables and Speakeasy Parties

In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap...until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another "Merry
Murderess" Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately
joining forces in search of the "American Dream": fame, fortune and acquittal.
This sharp edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging
by Bob Fosse. You can also now enjoy the show from reserved cabaret-style
two-person tables, with full service before the show and during intermission and
a bottle of wine (red or white). We will only have eight tables per performance,
and they are available online for $60. Click on the Buy Tickets button and look
for the cabaret-style tables link for the date you want to attend (tables for
10/23 performance are SOLD OUT!). Finally, on two special evenings, you can come
for the show, and then stay and party with the cast of CHICAGO! Relive the
Prohibition era as KAT presents a speakeasy-themed afterparty following the
performances on Saturday, October 16, and Saturday, October 23. Join our host,
Tony Award-nominated actor Brad Oscar (who will also provide some
entertainment), as well as KAT regulars for a night of reverie. Mingle with the
cast and enjoy a glass of wine along with all that jazz. Tickets: $10, includes
entry to the party and one drink. Additional drink tickets available for $5
each, or 3 for $10.
