UC Theatre Presents "Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom"
Lawn Gnomes, Hedge Clippers, Zombies ... Oh My!

Zombies aren't real. Or are they?
Utica, NY (02/28/2013)- The Utica College Department of Performing and Fine Arts will present its annual spring play, “Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom,” by Jennifer Haley. The performances will take place Thursday, March 7 through Saturday, March 9 at 8 p.m., with a matinee on Sunday, March 10 at 2 p.m. General admission tickets are $4 each; all performances are in Strebel Auditorium, Strebel Student Center.
The story opens in a suburban community filled with teenagers addicted to an online zombie video game. The object of the game is to escape and destroy the zombie army – all fun and games until the lines between the virtual and real worlds begin to blur.
The play has garnered rave reviews over the last few years from publications such as Variety Magazine, The Denver Post, and the Louisville Courier-Journal claiming that it is much “like a nifty episode of The Twilight Zone, the story builds to an affectingly gruesome finale.” For more information and reviews about “Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom visit www.samuelfrench.com .

"I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having received my education from Utica College." "As a returning adult student, I felt the program was perfect. The class size was small allowing for individual attention when I needed it. I always felt known and accepted as an individual, not just a number among many. The professors were encouraging and helpful in many areas, not just academics. They took a personal interest in us as people, not just students. When I had a difficult time, my professors gave me the extra little push that I needed to continue. I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having received my education from Utica College. Today I teach high school mathematics and also a course at HCCC. The education I received at Utica College has prepared me well for my position teaching the higher math courses in high school. Returning to college to obtain my Bachelor Degree in mathematics was the one of the best decision I ever made. Choosing Utica College made that decision even better."
