The Kanawha Players production of the "Night of the Living Dead Live!" continues at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Kanawha Players Theater at 309 Beauregard St.
This stage version is presented the same way as the classic horror film - in black and white. The show's 30 actors and actresses all wear black, white, gray or other neutral colors. The set is black, white and gray. Actors' makeup is all black and white and wigs are similarly hued.
The show is based on the 1968 movie directed by George Romero and tells the tale of a mysterious radiation - the fallout from a satellite probe that returns to Earth from Venus - that transforms unburied dead into flesh-eating zombies. The setting is a rural farmhouse, where seven family members are trapped by zombies.
The monochromatic story unfolds in horror and humor. There is one bright spot of color in the production: blood.
Tickets are $12 and $10 for students and seniors. For more information, visit www.thekanawhaplayers.org or call 304-343-7529.
