Chicago Zombie Prom

From their website:zombie prom

Zombie Army Productions will once again be hosting its annual Chicago Zombie Prom. As Chicago’s #1 Zombie Event, Zombie Prom is a ghastly, affectionate, cheesy blend of nostalgic high school Americana and the living dead. Zombie attire and makeup are required, but if you do not have your own makeup, zombie makeovers will be available for a $10 donation. For more information:

A Nude Hope: Star Wars Burlesque

Show_NHnov2014_1A motley group of geek girls takes the audience on a burlesque parody journey of the original Stars Wars IV: A New Hope released in 1977. The whole gang is there (except they are all wearing decidedly skimpier outfits).  According to Gamerfront the show is, “Utterly amazing… If you are a Star Wars lover in the Chicagoland area, this is a must-see.”

From their website:

The complete, unofficial parody recap of HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, abridged.

We’ve crammed all of the characters, plots, sex, drama and battles of the first 5 seasons into a single show. We dare to kill the characters that George R.R. Martin lets live.

At The Under The Gun Theater, 956 West Newport, Chicago

Chicago Zombie Pub Crawl


The undead take to the streets in the Ninth Annual Zombie Pub Crawl on Saturday from 2:00 pm until 10:00 pm.  All routes begin at The pH Comedy Theater at 1515 W. Berwyn in Andersonville with groups leaving every 20 minutes.

Go out and pretend that you’re dead!


From their website:

Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit musical that’s anything but Grimm. Forget the princesses you think you know – the original storybook heroines have come back to life to set the record straight. After multiple sold-out runs nationwide, these royal renegades tossed off their tiaras to bring their hilariously subversive, not-for-the-kiddies musical to you – and what you thought about princesses will never be the same!

At the Broadway Playhouse until June 10.

A convention committed to Science Fiction fanzines. This group has been meeting for 33 years trading often home made magazines devoted to the genre.
