The 14-year-old will be one-step closer to achieving that dream next month when she performs in her first stage production, a mash-up of zombie apocalypse and 1950s-style rock �n� roll musical in the Phoenix Theatre production of Zombie Prom.

Part of the ensemble cast that complements the story of pretty-girl Toffee as she falls for the class bad boy, Jasmine said it sounded like such a fun musical to be a part of that she jumped at the chance to be involved.

�I had seen some of Dark Psychic Productions before and they were awesome, so I definitely wanted to be a part of one of these productions because they looked like so much fun,� she said.

�There is just something about musical theatre that I love. I love being able to express my feelings on stage through singing, acting out a role that�s totally different to yourself and being able to dance at the same time.

�At the moment I want to do musical theatre as a hobby, but when I am older I do see myself wanting to be in the big city singing and dancing for a living to make people happy.�

Zombie Prom director Ryan McNally said the production was full of cheesy �50s humour and it would be a fun night out for the whole family.

�It�s full of dancing and singing and leans more towards a pop-rock opera with an underscore through the majority of the show,� he said.

�The songs themselves are upbeat, camp and super-catchy and do an awesome job telling the narrative � it has strong similarities to Grease in the sense of sound and feel.�

Zombie Prom is on at the Phoenix Theatre in Hamilton Hill between September 10 and 26, with tickets starting at $20.
