Ramping up for the BIG DAY — and more!

photoThings are really moving — and I mean dead things, zombies!

Thrill Day is almost here!

FINAL PRACTICE TIMES LISTED AT THE END OF THIS POST!
We just had a great meeting with Conrad from Peppershock Media http://www.peppershock.com/ AND Mona and Ervin from Wild 101 http://www.wild101fm.com/ at the Boise Spectrum (http://boisespectrumcenter.com/locateus.html) to finalize some Thrill Day details. Peppershock will be taking our official Thrill Day video and Wild 101 will bring their Boombox to blast the Thriller song when we need it!
ON THRILL DAY: Everyone will meet at 3 pm in full costume and makeup at the Boise Spectrum in the area between the Imax Theater and Toni & Guy Academy. http://boise.toniguy.edu/
That will be our staging area.
Wild 101 will have a tent where we will have day-of registration available (but go ahead and register now if you can, just scroll down to the link on this page or go to our website). Wild 101 will already be set up and will be blasting out music.
BE IN ZOMBIE CHARACTER ANY TIME YOU ARE OUT IN THE OPEN!
At the staging area we will hand out nametags — EVERYONE HAS TO WEAR ONE — and we will have an Official Witness there as we do a count-off.
When the countdown to Thriller is a few minutes away, I will lead us all, in full zombie character, into the plaza area. Then we will “die” and remain motionless until we hear our music cue!
When we rise up, WE WILL BE FACING TOWARD THE FOUNTAIN.
That way, the audience will have a large space to gather and watch us dance.
AFTER THE DANCE, AS SOON AS VINCENT PRICE STOPS LAUGHING, EXIT IN ZOMBIE CHARACTER IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS OFF THE “STAGE.” AND MAKE YOUR WAY BACK TO THE STAGING AREA — WE WILL DO ONE MORE COUNT-OFF BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE MAY “JUMP IN” AND WE HAVE TO COUNT EVERYONE FOR THE WORLD RECORD.
Bonus: Toni & Guy will give free makeup lessons for the first 25 who call them — after that it is still just $5. They also will be on hand for last minute touch ups at the staging area.

Final Practices:
Sat. Oct. 18: 1 pm at the Old Pen AND The FireHouse
Sun. Oct. 19: 1-3 at the Treasure Valley Family YMCA
Tues. Oct. 21: 7:30 pm at the Treasure Valley Family YMCA
Wed. Oct. 22: 6 pm at the Old Pen
STILL WAITING TO HEAR BACK ON OUR FINAL DRESS REHEARSAL!
