When an earthquake devastates Haiti’s capital city of Port-au-Prince, old fears and superstitions rise to the surface, including the reappearance of thewalking dead.

Tickets can also be purchased on line at www.artslasvegas.org.

The play is a new script by local playwright Brian Kral, who also directs. The cast of 21 features Sasha Bond as Alanis, the girl who dreams her dead sister is a zombie and Katarina Renee plays her best friend, Chantal. Dale Segal-Kral plays Alanis’ mother, Dr. Ducette, and Martha Watson plays Dr. Plantain. Also featured are Benjamin Onyx Dowdy, Shannon Lutz, Michael Syverson, Audrey Cordero, Johanzen Palomata, Jackie Shick, Harper Kral, Jenaisy Alfonso, Morgan Johnson, Conrad Kauffman, Alex Krabiel, Chelsea McLin, Alexis Phillips, Aleja Quinn, Ayoollu Walker, Tatiana Elizabeth Weiford, and Francisco Weller.
