Five dollars was a small price to pay for 10 tips on how to survive the Zombie Apocalypse. But even audience members not swayed by the reality such an apocalypse is just around the corner undoubtedly got their money’s worth in entertainment value.

Morinville Public School Drama students performed 10 Ways to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse, the school’s first dramatic presentation, May 26 and 27 at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre.

Teacher and Director Chris Layton was excited to see the hard work his students began last December unfold on the cultural centre stage, and was proud of what they accomplished.

“Opening night always has unexpected things and you hope the kids pull through,” Layton said prior to the second performance. “We did have a couple moments that were unscripted, but the kids pulled through, soldiered on and took it like professionals. I’m super proud of them.”

Student actor Taebren Gordon was pleased with the experience over the past number of months. “I didn’t really act before,” he said. “Then I came to drama. I became a main character. I thought I was going to be nervous and then I just thought of it as one of the practices.”

Fellow actor Maysen Wedman was also pleased with the experience of being in the school’s first play. “It was pretty hard work, but being on the stage was really, really fun,” she said, adding signing autographs at the end was her favourite part of the performance.
