Night of the Living Dead

When: Thursdays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Continues through Oct. 30 2016

Released in 1968, George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead is the movie that gave us the modern image of the zombie as a mindless, shambling corpse hungry for human flesh. Though members of the crew disagree, Romero has always insisted that the film is a metaphor for the collapsing social order of the 1960s, complete with a racial aspect that feels all too contemporary. Since, the carnivorous dead have been used as a metaphor or vehicle for tales of greed, fear and even love. But forget all of that. Tonight, go OG (that's original ghoul) in the David H. Lord theater at the Cottonwood Center for the Arts for opening night of Star Bar Players' Night of the Living Dead, directed by Bob Morsch and Dylan Mosley. Check online for a full schedule of performances. 8 p.m., 427 E. Colorado Ave., $6-$15, cottonwoodcenterforthearts.com. — Griffin Swartzell
