As we all know, ‘Shaun of the Dead‘ is one of the best horror comedies ever made and now a stage show based on Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright‘s film has been developed! While we’re sadly never going to get a continuation of the story that we’ve all fallen in love with, we’ll at least get a new iteration of it!
Well, that is if you are in the UK. At this time there are sadly no release dates set state side but that doesn’t mean of we won’t be getting some down the line! Currently Almost Legal productions has debuted their officially licensed stage show of ‘Shaun of the Dead’ last October and will be having a major expansion this coming year kicking off in the Spring. Anything that is potentially this fun may eventually have a chance to hit Broadway if it is successful and a variety of Off Broadway venues as well.
In the trailer you can check out below you’ll get an idea of how the songs will be put together for the stage show. Not only that, but you can check out how fun their idea of audience participation is!
How cool is that? Even better, Wright and Pegg have spoken up and given their blessing for the stage show as seen below:

Life is going nowhere for Shaun. He spends his life in his local pub, with his best mate Ed, has issues with his Mum and step-dad and things aren’t running too smoothly with his girlfriend Liz. When Liz dumps him, Shaun finally decides to get his life in order. He must win back her heart, repair his relationship with his mum and face up to his responsibilities.
Unfortunately, there is a slight problem with the world being taken over by Zombies. For the newly inspired Shaun, this is just another obstacle. In the face of a full scale ZOMBIE EPIDEMIC, armed with a cricket bat and his best mate with a spade, Shaun & Ed go to rescue Liz, her friends, mum and grudgingly his step-dad, and take them to the safest most secure place he knows.
