About the Resource

Ever wanted to stage a zombie invasion, but didn’t know how? School of the Dead will help you. Developed from every zombie movie/game/book/comic ever, School of the Dead is an immersive tour experience that takes guests around your site. There are ten scripted points in the tour, the rest is up to you and your zombies.

Your guests begin on a history tour of your site. This goes horribly wrong when the site is taken over by zombies. A group of army cadets (already on the tour) take charge and move the guests along a pre-arranged route to safety through the zombie hoards. On route, a ‘ringer’ is taken down, zombies pop up in the safe room, and the cadets lose control of everything (but only for a moment). The zombie hoards are finally disposed of with an air strike (sound effect needed).

School of the Dead needs nine competent actors, 12 support roles, and as many zombies as can stay in character. It works brilliantly to bring year groups together.

This is a pure money making thrill ride of a production. Go mad with soundscapes.

As this runs for approximately 45 minutes, it would be possible to run three experiences in one evening.
