Auditions are open to all GISD students and will be held at Ball High School auditorium November 2, 3, and 4 at 4:15 pm each day.

Performances of Zombie Prom will be presented to the public January 19-21, 2012 in the Ball High School Auditorium.
Zombie Prom is a 1950s horror comic book brought to life as a campy musical comedy. It is a rollicking romp through America's "Atomic Age" and the "Golden Age" of horror comic books. Here's the story...
Set in the fabulous '50s, this is the tale of a sweet teenage girl named, Toffee (a goody-goody type) and her "rebel without a cause" boyfriend, Jonny. The two meet at High School and fall in love, but the principal, Miss Delilah Strict intervenes, persuading the young Toffee to break up with Jonny. Tortured by the betrayal, Jonny drives his motorcycle to the nearby Nuclear Power Plant and flings himself into a nuclear cooling tower!
Toffee mourns the loss of her love, until one day when Jonny returns - AS A TEENAGE NUCLEAR ZOMBIE! Jonny professes his love and tells Toffee that he wants her back. He plans to clean up his act, finish school and take her to the senior prom - if she'll have him. Toffee is racked with indecision, and worst of all Miss Strict refuses to allow "zombie scum" in her fine institution. She even threatens to cancel the senior prom if anyone is caught supporting the "zombie's cause."
As crisis takes hold of the school, the following questions are raised - Will Toffee take Jonny back? Will Miss Strict let Jonny come back and finish school, or will she cancel Senior Prom, ruining the most important night in the lives of the students!?
You won’t want to miss the Zombie Prom finale – filled with zombies of all ages and sizes!
