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 .

"There is no question that my careers at GE and Rubbermaid wouldn't have worked out without the foundation that UC gave me." "I chose business as a major for the financial background it gave me. My UC degree gave me the opportunity to build my career at General Electric, where I spent 31 years, ending up as senior vice-president of corporate marketing and sales. I then went on to run Rubbermaid for six years and ended up as CEO. There is no question that the GE career and the Rubbermaid career wouldn't have worked out without the foundation that UC gave me."
