The Augustana Theatre Department's spring Main Stage show, Zombie Prom, will run March 1-3 and 8-10 at 7:30 p.m.

This student-designed production brings the "fabulous fifties" back to life — and a few other things that should have stayed dead. The show, by John Dempsey and Dana P. Rowe after a story by Dempsey and Hugh M. Murphy, tells the story of teenage love gone horribly wrong and is approved for the whole "nuclear" family.
