ALL-SINGING, all-dancing zombies roamed out of Carleton Community High School’s drama department to perform for staff, pupils and parents.

Theatrical youngsters performed Zombied for community groups and primary schools during the day on Tuesday and Wednesday this week, and gave parents and theatregoers a chance to see the “action-packed comedy, mystery show” in the evening.

Lynda Ross, co-ordinator of performing arts, said: “The show has dancing, singing, acting and appropriate for all ages.

“There is much mayhem, slapstick comedy in the show and a range of characters that appeal to everyone.

“We have been rehearsing since November and this is one of the largest casts ever with a chorus, dancers and a strong and vibrant main cast.

“It was written by playwrights Mary McMahon and Don Woodward and has been produced by the performing arts department, but many staff have offered their help with art work, scenery and general assistance.”

The show was performed in the sports hall by students studying drama at the Green Lane school.
