Based on Sam Raimi’s 80s cult classic films, EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL tells the tale of five college kids who travel to a cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force. And although it may sound like a horror, it’s not! The songs are hilariously campy and the show is bursting with more farce than a Monty Python skit.
EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL unearths the old familiar story: boy and friends take a weekend getaway at abandoned cabin, boy expects to get lucky, boy unleashes ancient evil spirit, friends turn into Candarian Demons, boy fights until dawn to survive.
As musical mayhem descends upon this sleepover in the woods, ‘camp’ takes on a whole new meaning with uproarious numbers like “All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons,” “Look Who’s Evil Now” and “Do the Necronomicon.”
Performances are Friday and Saturday evenings, October 20, 21, 27 and 28, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. in a new outdoor performance space on the grounds behind the Bellevue Society for the Arts facility, complete with a fake blood ‘Splatter Zone.’
