From SPT:

ABOUT “ZOMBIE CAESAR”: Caesar used to be the leader everyone wanted, but now his huge ego threatens to become maniacal. His trusted advisors decide to kill him, inciting the citizens to riot in support of a new regime led by Caesar’s one true friend, the noble Brutus. However, Caesar won’t stay fully dead – he shows up as a zombie, scaring the citizens, plaguing Brutus, and wreaking havoc. Will Brutus be able to restore peace, or will zombie-driven chaos consume the country? Zombie Caesar is a lean, dynamic, one-hour cut of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. Adapted and directed by Artistic and Education Director Shana Bestock, the play stars Seattle Public Theater’s 10-14 year old ensemble members.

SPECIAL APPEARANCE: The Roosevelt High School Thriller Club will make a special appearance at the October 30th, 2pm matinee. The club is a group of teenage zombies who arise from the dead every day for school (and return to their graves on the weekend). In September and October, they learn Michael Jackson’s famous Thriller dance and perform at community centers and festivals, culminating in their participation in Thrill The World, a worldwide simultaneous Thriller dance. Their favorite activities include devouring brains, groaning intelligibly and texting.
