Zombie Prom Preview

TYA Professional Training Program’s second annual Summer Intensive culminates this weekend in a high-energy production of Zombie Prom set in the atomic 50’s. 

What happens when the girl falls for the ghoul? Find out this week at Zombie Prom!

It’s just another day at Enrico Fermi High until Pretty senior Toffee falls for the bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. After he charges off on his motorcycle to the nuclear waste dump, he returns glowing and determined to reclaim Toffee’s heart.

He still wants to graduate… and to take Toffee to the prom. 

The principal wants him to drop dead. The scandal reporter wants to sell magazines. But will Jonny get his wish? 

Find out at Zombie Prom. Only four chances to catch this zany crowd-pleaser.

Join us on Saturday, July 22 for Brand New Day: TYA’s Annual Cabaret and Senior Showcase. Help us bid farewell to graduating members while also celebrating the company’s past season.

As always, a silent auction will be held throughout the evening to benefit the upcoming season. We’re pleased to offer you a preview of some of the awesome loot that will be available for bidding at this year’s silent auction.

  1. Limited Edition Show Memorabilia – Cry-Baby masks

    ….and finally…. the pièce de résistance….

  5. The Iron Bridge Wine Co. – 5-course dinner with wine pairings for two


    For the foodie in your life, you’re going to want to snag this experience to have an exquisitely crafted meal with wine pairings from one of Howard County’s favorite fine dining establishment.
