The Zombies will be walking the streets of Sooke

Afterlife the Musical is preceded by a Sooke zombie walk

Zombies will walk in Sooke

Zombies will walk among us!

Afterlife the Musical presents Sooke’s first Zombie Walk.

Join other zombies on Sunday, October 5 from 2 to 2:30 p.m. for a walk through downtown Sooke.

The walk starts at the Seaview Centre parking lot, (6631 Sooke Road) and ends at Peoples Drug Mart.

No registration required, no fees or charges, just show up in your zombie costume and make up and be ready to walk.

Or at least hobble along as best you can with your stinking rotting flesh.

Please obey walk leaders and road flaggers. Also, any dismembered limbs must not be left behind on the road (health reasons).

A proud presentation of the Sooke Harbour Players.

Zombie walks are relatively common in large cities, especially in North America. Some have been established as annual traditions, though others are organized as spontaneous flash mob events or performance art. Promoted primarily through word of mouth and online message boards, most zombie walks are an underground activity. During the walks, participants are encouraged to remain in character as zombies and to communicate only in a manner consistent with zombie behavior, which may include grunting, groaning or slurred, moaning calls for “brains”.

Afterlife, the Musical begins its run at the EMCS theatre on Halloween night, October 31. Afterlife was written by Thom Southwood, the creator of Howl the Musical and he directs the production as well. Reherarsals are underway and the cast and crew is fine-tuning Afterlife for its birth on Halloween night,

The productions run for three weekends, starting October 31. Tickets are already available at all the usual outlets in Sooke and East Sooke.
