Every year Orange County, CA looks forward to the return of its very popular theatrical production of Night of the Living Dead, presented by the Maverick Theater. Night of the Living Dead’s 15-year anniversary was nearly skipped this year due to the pandemic. Thankfully, the Maverick is continuing this annual tradition, but with a brand new (COVID friendly) spin. This COVID-safe and immersive experience draws guests into the story as groups of six to seven join the cast of the Night of the Living Dead while trying to survive a zombie outbreak. Night of the Living Dead 2020 is a modern-day take on George Romero’s classic horror film. Witness theater in motion as guests explore a nearby creepy industrial area and follow the cast through various locations as they try to escape the flesh-eating zombies lurking around every corner.
