Midnight Radio: Zombie Apocalypse

  • October 27 - November 19, 2011

Midnight Radio

For our spectacular 2011 Season Finale, the Midnight Radio team brings you a radio-style parody of George Romero’s cult classic, Night of the Living Dead. Interspersed with our unique brand of comedic commercials, sound effects, live music, and fake breaking news, Midnight Radio Episode 5: Zombie Apocalypse promises to be a zombie-tastic adventure for the ages!

Bricolage’s Midnight Radio program is a long-time fan favorite that takes the form of a classic 1940s radio broadcast complete with commercial parodies, musical underscoring, and live Foley sound effects. Over eight seasons, Midnight Radio episodes have ranged from zany, original variety shows to new adaptations of classics like It’s a Wonderful Life and War of the Worlds.

At Midnight Radio, attendees are cast as the live studio audience. Participants can watch the spectacle of the sounds being brought to life or simply shut their eyes and build the look of the show in their own imaginations.

See What Everyone Else Is Saying

  • “The subject is current and the treatment is indeed a guilty pleasure, like candy. Anyway, it's always the season for witty parody and camp when done with the knowing affection that Bricolage brings to its Midnight Radio series, now concluding its third year.”

    – Christopher Rawson, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
  • “With parts of the film projected on a screen behind them, the incredibly talented performers who make up this season’s Midnight Radio crew perfectly collide to put a raunchy, Mystery Science Theater 3000-style spin on the classic that even rabid fans would appreciate by creating quirky sounds effects and giving voice to all of the things you always wished Barbara, Johnny, Ben and the rest would say, but don’t.”
