ENID, Okla. — ‘Night of the Living Dead’

8 p.m. today, Saturday and Halloween

Gaslight Theatre

Mysterious radiation? Check. Flesh-eating zombies? Check. “Night of the Living Dead” on Halloween night? You bet.

Get ready to experience thrills and chills at Gaslight Theatre during each performance of “Night of the Living Dead.” Performances will be at 8 tonight and Saturday night, as well as on Halloween evening.

In the play, fallout from a satellite probe shot to Venus returns to Earth with mysterious radiation. This radiation causes the dead to transform into terrifying flesh-eating zombies. Seven people trapped in an isolated farmhouse begin to turn on each other as the living dead approach on all sides.

Tickets for each performance can be purchased at gaslighttheatre.org. Cost is $7, $11 or $14.

For more information, call (580) 234-2307. Box office hours for the theater, located at 221 N. Independence, are 2-5 p.m. today.
