In October, New Line Theatre premiered Gilbert & Sullivan’s comic horror operetta The Zombies of Penzance, and so many of our patrons asked if they could get a copy of the script or music.
NOW YOU CAN!
Both the script and the full piano-vocal score for The Zombies of Penzance are now available on Amazon.com. And soon (possibly before the end of the year), a live cast recording will be available as well, both on CD and streaming services!
You knew those zombies couldn’t stay dead!
Also, Scott Miller and John Gerdes, who created The Zombies of Penzance, are licensing the show for further productions, and inquiries have come in from companies across the country, including two Gilbert & Sullivan societies!
You can read more about The Zombies of Penzance, its (totally not true) backstory, and its incredible reception, here.

And if you’re a longtime New Line fan, you might also be interested in The Poster Art of New Line Theatre, a very cool book book of all our posters over the last 28 years, also available on Amazon.
And the 1995 original cast album of New Line’s world premiere vampire musical In the Blood, is now available on CD for the first time, and streaming soon, on Amazon, along with the show’sscript and vocal selections.
And just a reminder, when you shop at Amazon, go to smile.Amazon.com instead (and bookmark it) — it’ll ask you to choose a charity (you’ll choose New Line Theatre), and then whatever you buy on the site will kick back a small donation to New Line! It really adds up!
And check out the many books and other musical theatre material by artistic director Scott Miller on his Amazon Author Page.
The New Line season continues in March with an all-new, intimate take on the classic La Cage aux Folles, and the season closes in June with the hot new rock musical Be More Chill, based on the bestselling novel, which opens on Broadway in March. And we’re close to announcing a really exciting 2019-2020 season!

ABOUT NEW LINE THEATRE
New Line Theatre, “the bad boy of musical theatre,” is a professional company dedicated to involving the people of the St. Louis region in the exploration and creation of daring, provocative, socially and politically relevant works of musical theatre. New Line was created back in 1991 at the vanguard of a new wave of nonprofit musical theatre just starting to take hold across the country. New Line has given birth to several world premiere musicals over the years and has brought back to life several shows that were not well served by their original New York productions.
Altogether, New Line has produced 86 musicals since 1991, and the company has been given its own entry in the Cambridge Guide to American Theatre and the annual Theater World. New Line receives funding from the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
