How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse

Two weeks ago, I was observing the Mayan Apocalypse at a private event. (While there, I learned that I need to get a cat, and rescue-kitty adoption is in process. You know you'll hear more about this as it evolves!) Since we made it through the Mayans, tonight I'm moving on to zombies. How to Survive A Zombie Apocalypse is quite the learning experience, too!

The crew at Theater Asylum tells us how to survive in a seminar format offered by the School of Survival. School head Dr. Bobert Dougash and his crack team - a military-style survivalist, a scientist, and a regular guy - taught us in a totally fun way. Using the name tags we - the audience/seminar takers - all put on when we walked in, if you got an answer wrong, you ripped the name tag off because you would not have survived! Right off the bat, left-handers and vegetarians/vegans are doomed. (Most tools are made for right-handers, and the vegs require too many supplements already.) If you had a choice between a gorilla and a giraffe for your defense, unless you chose the giraffe you ripped your tag off. (The giraffe can run 50 miles an hour, and you can use his neck to climb up and escape the zombies.) I went with the gorilla, so I did not survive. And, if a vampire could be on your fighting squad, you are home free! (The vampire is already dead, plus the zombies are depleting his food supply, so he's ticked off!) The team also took questions from the audience and improvised to answer the scenarios. These were quite creative and hysterical!

How to Survive A Zombie Apocalypse is extended to February 24. Note that my performance was filled with tweens and teens, and it was totally family-friendly. Don't expect any blood or brains. Get your schooling on while you can!
