Pre-sale tickets go on sale Monday March 12th.
For far too long, social events have unfairly excluded Zombiekind. If you are one of the reanimated dead, or are in a relationship with one, there is no reason to hide in the dark any longer! If you are a living human who is sympathetic to the cause of Reanimated Rights, or have ever been Zombie-curious, you are also welcome to join this historic event. For one night, let's put our differences aside, dance, and have fun!
What is the PROMocalypse?
It's a prom! Dancing, DJs, balloons, streamers, the works. The only difference is that you don't have to sneak out to the parking lot to drink (as long as you're 21 & up). Oh, and the zombies. Cities across the world have hosted Zombie Walks, Zombie Crawls, and Zombie Proms. It's your chance to get creative with makeup and costume to become a zombie for one night, and join the horde of the walking dead to terrorize the living. We're proud to have done seven proms since 2010, and happy to announce we're back in 2018 to do it all over again!
PROMocalypse 2018 is happening Saturday, April 21st at The Basement East with music from DJ KDSML and j.howard.
Do I have to be a zombie to come?
No! Living humans are welcome. If you are a zombie dating a human, or a human dating a zombie, or a human looking for a zombie to complete (and/or eat) you, come and dance the night away! (18+ to party, 21+ to drink, of course.)
Yes! We will once again crown a PROMocalypse King and Queen. Stay tuned for instructions on how to nominate yourself by posting your photo on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook with the tag #promocalypsecourt. A submission page will be announced and voting for Prom Court will begin in the month or two before prom. Prom King and Queen are voted the night of the event from the 10 finalists.
How should I look?
Come dressed for prom: Suits or tuxes for guys, dresses or gowns for ladies. Whether you are a human or a zombie, prom attire is MANDATORY — you will not be allowed in if you're not dressed appropriately (even if you already have a ticket). YES, WE'RE SERIOUS.
This is a peaceful event, so no weapons of any kind are permitted. Yes, this includes «fake» weapons! You're going to be dancing, so you'll want to keep the props to a minimum.
The dress code is in place so we can have fun and enjoy the theme. You can be a regular, delicious human or a totally rotten zombie hellbent on brains — or anything in between, as long as you're dressed for prom. There are several sites (like zombiemaker.com) explaining how to make and apply your own zombie makeup, or you can get help from our friends & sponsors at Performance Studios at 523 W. Thompson Lane.
