Based on Sam Raimi’s 80’s cult classic films, 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.
Returning cast members include David Schoen as Jake, Garett Harris as Scotty, Hayley Pulizzi as Linda, Shannon Hurst as Shelly/Annie, Joel Frazee as Ed and Kiera Elyse as Cheryl, with newcomer Matthew Pecek as ASH. Jamie Warrow will direct. Evil Dead: The Musical has book & lyrics by George Reinblatt and Music by Frank Cipolla, Christopher Boyd, Melissa Morris, and George Reinblatt.
