PLAY 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!

  Support YOUR Community Theatre  

   Donate today!  

WRCT is committed to providing productions that captivate audiences. We strive to maintain affordable ticket prices, making live theatre accessible to our entire community.  


WRCT is run by one full-time staff member, our Board of Directors, key lead volunteer positions, and our numerous loyal core volunteers and participants. This means we have the luxury and resources available to provide full training and on-boarding for beginners. We work alongside you, supporting whatever you need, so you never feel overwhelmed. You are encouraged to step forward to tackle something you are interested in, without already having experience.  


An Actor Prepares

Auditions are open for all! Experienced actors are regularly joined on the WRCT stage by those who have never performed before. 


Backstage Techies

No show is possible without those working behind the curtain. Try your hand at lighting, sound, or set design. Or contribute to costumes, hair, 

make-up, and props. 


Our Very Own Venue

Owning our own theatre affords us many opportunities but it also includes massive upkeep. Help with set-up, general cleaning, and maintenance is always appreciated.

Final Notes

Directors are needed at the helm of every show. We support directors to choose their own material and encourage submissions to our 

MainStage season.

Support WRCT

WRCT is a nonprofit organization dependent on contributions, sponsorships, and grants. The proceeds from ticket sales cover only a small portion of our expenses, which means we rely on the generosity of our patrons to continue bringing quality, live theatre to the Wisconsin Rapids area.

You can help us in a variety of ways.

We would certainly appreciate a monetary contribution to the general overhead of WRCT.

You can also specify how your donation should be used toward the costs of our facilities, productions, or specific items.
