Dead of winter

Categories: Theater
Local theater troupe Live Action Set, the group behind this year's most-attended Fringe Festival show, Please Don't Blow Up Mr. Boban, is in search of participants for its Zombies on Ice performance, which will take place on Medicine Lake in Plymouth as one of this year's many Art Shanty Projects. The first show is January 13 at 3:00 p.m., and 50 to 100 participants are still needed to fill the roles of zombies, make-up artists, and zombie team leaders.

Those interested need not be skilled at playing the undead on a frozen body of water: Galen Treuer of Live Action Set says the only thing you need is an ability to "propel across the ice in a jerky, zombie-like manner," and the desire to have your frozen and snot-encrusted face "made up in the gruesome style of violent decay." Of course, a love of blood-red icicles dripping from your numbed little nose doesn't hurt anything, either. Anyone desiring to play the winter dead should contact Treur at gtreuer[at]
