April 22-23, 7pm, Newport: Our very own Steve Gervais, world-renowned horror illustrator, will be leading a Zombie Band in Newport, RI this weekend!
Steve is bringing his musical talent to the stage as part of the Marley Bridges Theatre Company’s production of “Menace of the Morgue.” This rock musical features – you guessed it, zombies! – and pays homage to 1960s psychedelic sci-fi/horror cinema. It’s an original work, written and directed by Rhode Island native John McKenna.
Tickets are only $5!

I’ll be there on Saturday night, along with my fellow Finding Lovecraft producer, Jim Wolpaw…Come join us –this should be a hoot!
Menace of the Morgue
Dr. Chester Menace has invented a device that translates a zombie’s groans, screams and moans into understandable language. The result? A society where humans and zombies coexist, but the truce is a delicate one. Come enjoy an evening at the theatre like none other! This Musical Zombedy is going into workshop performances for two nights only, and each performance will feature a ‘talk back’ at the end with the producers, director, actors, musicians, and crew. Your feedback will help shape the future of the show, and in October, Dr. Menace will return for three nights at the Casino Theatre for the world premiere.
Featuring original rock songs & ballads including:
- “Hate the Zombies”
- “The One I’m Not Livin’ For”
- “Lucky Stiff”
- “The Early Pre-Dusk of Dr. Menace’s Re-animated Undead Zombies”
