Introducing new interactive onstage seats: The Zombie Porch!

porch-seats3These exclusive seats give you a new level of involvement! YOU are the undead Zombie Chorus. You watch the performance as “normal patrons” but when the “flesh alarm” goes off, you zombify. No acting experience is necessary! We will teach you the zombie moans and groans, and you’ll get to use various Foley props to create additional sound effects. With just 6 tickets available per show and a price tag of only $15, these seats will fill up fast.

DETAILS: The Zombie Porch, set up to the far right of the stage, gives the Zombie Chorus a clear view of the performers, but may have an obstructed view of the film being screened in background. No special skills are necessary and a short practice session before the performance will familiarize you with your cues and Foley props. Zombie Porch seats are fully accessible with both visual and audio cues. To participate you must purchase a Zombie Porch seat.

RULES: Report to Bricolage 30 minutes before the show for Zombie Chorus Training – practice makes perfect, even for the undead! 
No inappropriate, inebriated, or disruptive behavior will be allowed. You must be on your best zombie behavior. Zombie apparel and makeup is encouraged!

  • "Bricolage's twist adds more Pittsburgh flavor, humor and commercial spoofs to "feast on your funny bones as yinz laugh your brains aht."

    – Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Sharon Eberson
  • "Cheesy, camp, funny and fast. Midnight Radio is a brilliant concept, and Bricolage Production Co.’s current edition, Midnight Radio: Night of the Living Dead N’at, delivers."

    – Pittsburgh City Paper, Michelle Pilecki
  • "You don’t miss a full set or costumes, and you come to appreciate the true skill in voice acting. This show had us in stitches, and I wouldn’t be surprised if a few folks decided to rise from the dead just to see it."

    – Pittsburgh in the Round, Claire Juotzitis
  • "Bricolage Production Company blends a 1968 movie with 1940s radio techniques to spoof local zombie culture."

    – City Paper, CP Staff
  • “Night of the Living Dead N’at” is a spooky, yet humorous take on the nearly fifty-year old film, “Night of the Living Dead,” with scenes from the movie played on a big screen behind the actors "

    – 'Burgh Vibrant, Michael Buzzeli
  • "Bricolage is breathing new life—and death—into the cinematic classic, updating it with a raucous yinzer twist. Bricolage’s longtime fan favorite Midnight Radio Series returns to dish out a comedy-laden revamping of the flick complete with a contemporary “yinzerized” script adapted by the company’s producing artistic director, Tami Dixon. Paying homage to the Godfather of Zombies, the spine-tingling show will be augmented by the eerie live music of classical rock powerhouse Cello Fury."
