Evil Dead: The Musical

Sep 27 - Oct 27 , 2018 City Theatre

The hilariously, bloody tradition continues this fall as Evil Dead: The Musical returns for its 10th season in Detroit and ninth season performing at the City Theatre; presented by Sweat Equity Studio. A talented pack of local cast members, new and returning, will rise to bring the familiar tale to life with a five-week engagement from Thursday, September 27 through Saturday, October 27 at the City Theatre inside Hockeytown Cafe.

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 with uproarious numbers like "All the Men in my Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons", "What the F&%* Was That?" and "Do the Necronomicon".

With the approval of both Sam Raimi and the film’s star, Bruce Campbell, the first musical version of the film was staged and enjoyed a successful workshop in Toronto and subsequent performances at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal in 2004. The Off-Broadway production opened on November 1, 2006 and ran through September 6, 2008.

Returning cast members include: David Schoen as Jake, Garett Michael Harris (a previous fan favorite as Scotty) is appearing as Ash, Hayley Pulizzi as Linda, Shannon Hurst as Shelly/Annie and Joel Frazee as Ed. Jamie Warrow will direct and Allyson Smith, a veteran of nine years, will choreograph. Evil Dead: The Musical has book & lyrics by George Reinblatt and Music by Frank Cipolla, Christopher Bond, Melissa Morris, and George Reinblatt.
