Fouhy’s cast from the past is at it againAugust 9th, 2011 at Tue, 9th, 2011 at 12:00 pm by markklaas
Paul Fouhy’s cast from the past is putting on another benefit program.
Fouhy, a child of the ’50s, has selected another James Valcq’s musical comedy, “Zombies From The Beyond,” a spoof lampooning sci-fi of that era.
The Summer Alumni Theater Company premieres “Zombies” on Thursday at the Theatre at Auburn Mountainview, 28900 124th Ave. SE.
Shows, all starting at 7:30 p.m., are scheduled for Friday and Saturday, and again Aug. 18, 19, 20.
Tickets are $10. Proceeds benefit the high school drama students scholarship fund. The SATC is comprised of actors, actresses and artists who graduated from Auburn-area high schools.
“Because of our summer shows, we were able to give $2,800 this year to students to further their education,” Fouhy said.
In “Zombies From The Beyond,” a small group of scientists and townspeople have to save Milwaukee from a pack of singing, dancing zombies from outer space.
“It’s fun and high energy,” said Dave Cox, who plays Major Malone, commander of the Space Center.
This is the fourth summer the SATC has pulled together to produce a summer show. Each has been well received in the community.
