If you’re a horror fan, chances are you like the Evil Dead trilogy – Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, and Army of Darkness.
If so, then you may want to check out Evil Dead: The Musical.
This theatrical production takes elements from the films, adds in musical numbers, mixes in a lot of camp and comedy, and serves it up live on stage.
The basic synopsis: Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. It’s all up to Ash (an S-Mart housewares employee, turned demon killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons are telling bad jokes… and all to music.
Evil Dead: The Musical is currently appearing at Theatre Downtown from now through July 2, Thursdays through Sunday. Times for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday productions are 8:00pm. All Sunday matinees are 2:30pm.
Ticket prices vary from $16 to $22, but the first Thursday after opening (which would be this Thursday, June 9), tickets are only $10.
