SYNOPSIS: “It’s an old tale. You’ve probably heard it a hundred times. Boy and his friends go on a week-long vacation in the woods. Three friends turn into Candarian demons. One friend is killed by a forest of evil trees. Two demons are killed by their boyfriends, respectively, while one stays in the cellar trying to kill everything in sight. Like I said… pretty standard stuff.”
Evil Dead: The Musical takes all the elements of the cult classic films, The Evil DeadEvil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness and combines them for one of the craziest, funniest, and bloodiest theatrical experiences of all time. Did we mention the blood?!

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 (a houseware-aisle employee turned demon-killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons tell bad jokes… and all to music.

You don’t need to be a fan of Evil Dead to love this show. You don’t need to be a fan of horror to love this show. You don’t even need to be a fan of musicals to love this show. As long as you like having fun… this show is for you.  Plus it’s the only show with a ‘Splatter Zone’ – a section of the audience that gets covered in fake blood.  And with this combination of blood, jokes, cheesy effects, and really awesome musical numbers, Evil Dead The Musical is unlike any show you’ve ever seen.  JOIN US!!!!!

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:
Ash (Male, Tenor/Baritone): The hero and iconic character of the musical. This devoted S-Mart housewares employee evolves over the course of the show from a cowardly college student to a wisecracking Deadite slayer with his detachable hand chainsaw and 12 gauge “boomstick.”

Linda (Female, Mezzo-Soprano): The girl next door. Linda is sweet, thoughtful, and completely devoted to Ash, until she turns evil and tries to kill him. She laughs an annoyingly inordinate amount of time after transforming.

Cheryl (Female, Mezzo-Soprano): Ash’s sister and the odd woman out in the group. Looking to spend a week relaxing, she is the recipient of Scotty’s jokes and torment. The only one to sense the evil surrounding the cabin, she is the first to be possessed, turning her into an aggressive, foul-mouthed demon that speaks in very bad puns. Spends the majority of the show locked in the cellar.

Scotty (Male, Tenor/Baritone): Good looking, cocky, a prankster and Ash’s best friend. Thinks himself the brave one until he’s forced to kill, then his panic leads him to flee. He returns to warn Ash about the woods and attempts to help his friend even as he is knocking on death’s door.

Shelly (Female, Mezzo-Soprano): Beautiful, easy, and not too smart. She is Scotty’s latest fling and looking to party. Just because she becomes an evil demon doesn’t mean she can’t look good doing it!

Annie (Female, Mezzo-Soprano): Quite the overbearing explorer who finds missing pages to the Necronomicon and wants to reunite with her father to continue their research. Very bossy and drawn to Ash. Must be comfortable in a tear away semi-revealing costume.

Ed (Male, Tenor/Baritone): Annie’s coworker, boyfriend, and doormat. He travels with her to the cabin to proceed with their research of the book of the dead. After turning evil, his confidence may lack but this “Bit Part Demon” is ready to sing!

Jake (Male, Tenor/Baritone): Lonely stranger with a meatloaf voice.

Ensemble Roles:
Evil Trees/Deadites/Chorus: These are the true comedians of the show. A nasty group of trees out to get the campers and will stop at nothing and the evil Deadites! Will sing and dance.

Moose: A possessed, singing, Candarian Demon moose head! That enough makes it awesome, except once moose get going they never stop! Puppetry and singing.
