Prepare yourself for a spine-tingling experience that is perfect for the spooky season! Marshfield Community Theatre proudly presents Night of the Living Dead, a heart-pounding, monochromatic masterpiece that brings the cult classic to life.


Fall out from a satellite probe shot to Venus returns to Earth carrying a mysterious radiation that transforms the unburied dead into flesh-eating zombies. Seven people trapped in an isolated farmhouse, held hostage by the ravenous ghouls, begin to turn on each other as the dead encroach. A gripping terror-filled monochromatic play that brings all the fright of the cult classic to life. This blend of thrilling horror laced with touches of black humor envelops the audience in the action and unfolds into a shocking theatrical ending.
