This Halloween season, Rubber Chicken Theater brings back the popular musical comedy Evil Dead: The Musical. Rubber Chicken Theater previously staged this bloody popular show in 2009 and 2010 to sold out houses so reservations are strongly recommended.
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. Although it may sound like a horror show, 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 an 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, What the F#$k Was That?, and Do the Necronomicon.
Evil Dead: The Musical contains adult language and situations, buckets of blood that will splash out into the audience (especially if patrons sit in the Splatter Zone), chain saws, gunshots, death, dismemberment, and dance numbers. Reprising their roles are Nathan St. Germain, Ashley Effinger, Keith Hursey, Ric Stevens, and April Cary. New cast members include Kendra Carlson, Jeremy Churchill, Rosy Dey, David Greenberg, and Anna Vogt. The show is also being directed by Greg J. Anderson, with musical direction provided by Bree Taylor.
New this year are bigger and bloodier special effects, brand-new dance numbers, and a few more demonic surprises.
Tickets are $15 per person, with limited Splatter Zone Seating available for $25 (includes free commemorative t-shirt) and can be reserved by calling 218-213-2780.
