One Man Walking Dead comes to Kelowna stage

The dead walk, in New Vintage Theatre’s latest show to hit the stage.

Society has crumbled and ravenous corpses rule. Can a ragtag band of survivors make their way in an undead world where they are at the bottom of the food chain? Known to gamers worldwide as Commander Shepard in Bioware’s Mass Effect Trilogy, actor/improviser extraordinaire Mark Meer bites into a script by Fringe favourite T.J. Dawe – a one-man parody of the zombie T.V. series spawned by the zombie comic book.

Don’t miss your chance to see this epic adventure/comedy come to life with an internationally revered artist-included with your purchase of a day ticket to Kelowna Fan Experience on March 23.

Advance tickets just $25 and service charges, door tickets $35 at selectyourtickets.com

He also plays multiple roles throughout the Dragon Age and Baldur’s Gate series, and stars in the ongoing post-apocalyptic survival game The Long Dark from Hinterland Studio.
