In this musical comedy, the laughs abound in the unlikeliest of settings as the Cold War and space race paranoia threaten the good folks at the fictional Milwaukee Space Center in 1955! The budding romance of rocket scientist Trenton Corbett and Mary Malone—the daughter of the Space Center commander—is jeopardized when a flying saucer lands in Milwaukee, piloted by the alien “Zombina” who is bent on procuring he-specimens to re-populate her planet. Can Mary uphold her lady-like demeanor while saving Milwaukee from a Red Menace and a flying saucer invasion? Can the stalwart men of Milwaukee survive brainwashing by a musical menace from another world? Taking its cue from pulp movies popular at the time, ZOMBIES FROM THE BEYOND brings the 1950s nostalgically and hilariously to life with a tuneful, toe-tapping score!

In a departure from his usual style of photo-realistic paintings, Glenn will be showing a collection of recent abstract works. These works are in the expressionist tradition of artists like Jackson Pollock and William DeKooning.
A graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and the Cleveland Institute of Art, Glenn is a member of the American Society of Portrait Artists, the Pastel Society of America and the Meadville Council on the Arts.
Winning a national award for drawing, he was featured in American Artists Magazine and locally in the premiere issue of Shore Magazine.
Currently Morisue is listed in Who’s Who in American Art, Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in the World. His gallery representation includes the Kada Gallery of Erie, Gallery One in Mentor and Art Review Today in Cleveland.
