SYNOPSIS: Walking dwarves... as in the walking dead? That’s right! What could be more fun for all ages than a zombie fractured fairy tale?! Thanks to some prompting from a conniving Magic Mirror, the vain queen poisons apples with a “special ingredient," leading to a kingdom-wide plague of zombie dwarves! As the zombie horde grows, the kingdom’s dwindling band of survivors convene at the castle, the queen realizes with horror what she has done, but she still wants the royal ball to continue so she can win the heart of the hunky Prince Brawny. Will there be a happily ever after in this fairy tale? Thanks to alternate endings, the answer’s up to the audience!
