The collaboration of John Dempseys story and Dana P Rowes composition leads to almost everything you expect musical comedy to be cheesy, American, high octane and cringe worthy to the maximum extent. And yet, while this is hardly a groundbreaking production (despite its pretentions to be the Proms UK Premiere) it is not short of amusement and will almost certainly leave a smile on your face.When Toffee and Jonny (arent I cool because my name has no h) end their relationship two weeks before the school prom, a devastated Jonny runs off to the local nuclear site and kills himself. What we havent reckoned on, or perhaps some of us had if wed read the title, is that Jonny is to return, as a twitching, bright green teenage Zombie, desperate to win Toffee back. Unfortunately the principal at Enrico Fermi High, aptly named Miss Strict, has other ideas and with her regime of Rules, Regulations and Respect threatens to cancel the prom if Jonny is seen within the confines of her school. What ensues is a dramatic finale (no surprises there), a shocking piece of history revealed and Miss Strict becoming far more like Miss Sexy!The cast are, on the whole, excellent and bring countless energy to a production which takes a fair bit of time to really get going. To entice Sally Bankes to The Landor Theatre is quite an achievement and while not a big enough name to seduce people to a venue which is perhaps a little lost to the north of Clapham, she does a sterling job at driving some menace into the show. She is joined by the sleazy media tycoon Eddie Flagrante (Simon Cole) and their on stage chemistry almost brings the house down during Expose in the final act. Where Bankes and Cole excel, Jonathon Vickers disappoints as Jonny. His performance was so casual and vocally underpowered, it was almost impossible to hear him over the backing chorus and piano accompanying the score. A minor gripe, but a part which I felt really needed to be cast correctly in order to bring some backbone to the show.On the whole though, this is an enjoyable production; the design is simple yet strong bright lighting and costume contrasted with a black and white magazine cover backdrop, and while the score is at times forgettable, Ian MacFarlanes direction mixed with Grace Harringtons inventive choreography ensures the performers bring most of the material to life. Its hardly Sondheim or Schonberg, but Zombie Prom is good light entertainment.
