If weddings weren't stressful enough, try planning the big day around a domineering bride, a spineless groom, and a philandering best man while a horde of flesh-hungry zombies are pounding on the doors outside.
Such is the problem that faces Olivia, the reluctant hero of Bridezilla vs. The Apocalypse, a new stage production from director Steff Bishop-Lampman and writer Aaron Middlemiss running June 21-23 at The Staircase Theatre in Hamilton, ON.
With romance, laughs, blood, and guts, Bridezilla vs. The Apocalypse is set to kick off the first week of Black Box Fire's Emerging Artist Series.
I was invited to sit in on a rehearsal last week and even though I only caught the last third of the story, Bridezilla vs. The Apocalypse is shaping up to be a really fun show in the tradition of Shaun of the Dead.
To see the show, single tickets are only $10/person (cash only), but to see all three shows in the Series you can get a series pass for only $25/person.
Don't be left out with the hungry dead, make a reservations and guarantee a seat for Bridezilla vs. The Apocalypse today. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

When the end of the world comes at the hands of the walking dead, who are you going to call? No! Not those guys! You call the Replacement Wedding Planner!
When Olivia gets a call from her boss, Ivan, to take charge of a wedding at the last minute, little does she realize that she will not just have to put up with the shennanigans of the worst bride to be in history, she'll also have to contend with a horde of zombies, hell bent on ruining her very first wedding! And, did we mention Olivia slept with the groom? Oh yeah, she's got to juggle that too. And did we mention the zombies? Yeah, we did! Come hell or high water, zombies or over bearing parents and drunken best-men, Olivia’s going to have to call upon all her ass-kickery, haute couture skills to make sure this wedding goes off without a hitch!
