meet the zombies

By day, they manage everything from getting smoothies from A to B, keeping the office ship shape, answering the bananaphone and doing IT stuff.

Mixed ability

But by night (and every other weekend), they rise up, cast their day jobs to one side and dance like the living dead.

If the living dead had a thing for talc, ripped lycra and mixed ability dancing.

Please say hello to the Zombie All Stars

Eddie - Office Superman (and self proclaimed Head of Security)

Eddie

Day-to-day job: Manning the grassy van fleet, filling the fridge, fixing all problems when Ian the Builder isn't about, refilling the fridge, lifting lots of heavy stuff, using a drill and sporting an array of day glo flat caps.

Zombie role: Werewolf and zombie dancer in Troop Camp. Someone has since stolen said mask. He'd like it back please. No questions asked.

Eddie zombie

Interesting fact: Eddie has just won the innocent scholarship to take acting lessons in New York. In anticipation of hitting the big time, he very kindly signed his autograph for you to add to your collection.

Print out, save and then whack on eBay in five year's time.

Ruth - Commercial Operations

Ruth

Day-to-day job: Ruth describes her day job as 'Working with the sales team to make sure all their chat actually happens'. Or getting the right smoothies get to the right place at the right time.

Zombie role: The receptionist and lead dancer in Troop Literally

Ruth zombie

Interesting fact: Ruth had planned to bury her costume for that authentic zombie look. Told everyone she'd buried it in fact. Went out in the newsletter and everything. Turns out after all, she forgot to bury her dress. Thankfully, talc disguises a multitude of hastily purchased sins.

John T - Commercial Manager

John

Day-to-day job: In his own words, John 'looks after' the high street. Meaning where ever you see one of our drinks in a high street shop, you'll have John's silver tongued sales patter to thank.

Zombie role: Zombie Dancer #8 in Troop Smash. Lightest on his feet of entire cast (see below)

John zombie

Interesting fact: Despite being a lifter of big weights and lover of all things sporty, John won the award for Ponciest Dancing Shoes this side of Fame, chasséeing up in slip on dance pumps.

Mark G - Infrastructures Analyst

Day-to-day job: Something to do with networks and servers. Something to do with going into a big cupboard under the stairs that no one else is allowed in.

Mark g

Zombie role: Boardroom zombie, gym zombie and integral member of Troop Literally

Mark zombie]

Interesting fact: Mark knew his calling from an early age. Sadly his fashion forward jumpers and trendy bowl cut weren't enough to cut it at fashion college. So he plumped for a career in IT instead. Mini mark

Check out that keys on that board.

Jim Anderson - Head of Projects

Jim

Day-to-day job: In his day job which is "more than just I.T", Jim and his team are in charge of changing the difficult stuff in Fruit Towers. Explains alot really.

Zombie role: Casting director, location scout, producer, dance teacher, screen writer, the main man (Pictured below: Front of shot, slightly green, tight red jeans)

Jim
Interesting fact #1: Jim reckons he spent 10 hours learning the dance. That's not taking into account time spent practicing in meetings or whilst standing behind people's desks. Just imagine. All that gyrating, all that hee hee, going on right behind your chair when all you'd ask for was an Excel formula.

Interesting fact #2: The hardest bit of the dance to get right was this sequence:

Right hip, right hip, right hip, in, out, left hip, left hip.

He's got it nailed now. After all that back-of-chair rehearsing,

So now you've met some of the cast, gleaned their vital stats and had a sneak peak of the choreography (right hip, right hip, right hip etc), why not check them out in action right here?
