Musical ‘Zombie Prom’ lurches onto Canyon Crest Academy stage in Carmel Valley

‘Zombie Prom’ will be performed at Canyon Crest Aca-demy’s Envision Theatre on Oct. 24-25, 30-31 and Nov. 1.

Canyon Crest Academy Envision Theatre presents the musical “Zombie Prom” over the Halloween season at the school’s Black Box Theatre.

This girl-loves-ghoul rock-and-roll Off-Broadway musical by Dana Rowe and John Dempsey is set in the atomic 1950s at Enrico Fermi High. A teen’s encounter with the local atomic waste dump causes him to return “transformed” — but he still has the All-American dream of taking a pretty senior to the prom. History comes to his rescue while a selection of original ’50s-style songs keeps the action rocking across the stage.

Upcoming performance at Canyon Crest Academy in Carmel Valley blends drumming, dance

Faith Jensen-Ismay, artistic director of the Mojalet Dance Collective, looks on as two of the company’s dancers rehearse one of their routines, as members of Rhythm Talk play drums and percussion.  The rehearsal took place at the studio in Jensen-Ismay’s Poway home.

Those who attend a drum and dance performance at Canyon Crest Academy on Friday, Oct. 3, will experience a fusion of two art forms that local audiences rarely, if ever, get to see.

“It’s completely unique. I’ve been performing and working in San Diego for 25 years, and I’ve never see anything like this,” said Faith Jensen-Ismay, artistic director of the Mojalet Dance Collective.

“It’s an explosion of the arts. You get it all. It really magnifies the production, makes it bigger than life,” said Del Mar resident Alyssa Kinnear, who has been dancing with Mojalet for two-and-a-half years.
