Perrysburg High School presents The Winter One Acts: 10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse, Pillow Talk and Once Upon a Wolf. This production provides a unique experience for both actors and viewers with an evening of intimate theatre featuring a selection of one act plays full of comedy. Join director Rob Gentry along with assistant director Deb Drew, and the Perrysburg High School cast and crew, in this special theatre experience with the delightful comedic performances:

10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse

It's the end of the world and hordes of rampaging zombies are about to kill you. What do you do? Try your hand at kung fu against the undead? Attempt to reason with creatures that would rather eat brains than use them? Turn to this handy and hilarious guide to survive the apocalypse!

Pillow Talk
In Pillow Talk, two heterosexual men, Aaron and Doug, are forced to share a bedroom and a bed in the mobile home of Aaron’s eccentric grandmother. Hampered by Doug’s phobic fear of physical intimacy, the characters are forced to examine their feelings about friendship and each other. As the battle lines are drawn, they get little sleep and a night full of surprises.

Once Upon A Wolf

This fast and furious collection of fractured fairy tales with a modern twist tells what happens when the Big Bad Wolf decides he (or she) doesn’t want to be big or bad anymore. Old Granny Stinky feet is just trying to tell the kiddies some stories, but she’s having trouble with the Wolf. He won’t eat her like he’s supposed to! Instead, he wants to be the good guy for a change, so he’s off on a mission to become a hero – no matter how many people tell him it is impossible.
