“Evil Dead The Musical” is based on Sam Raimi’s “Evil Dead” films, the series of classic horror B-movies that became a cult sensation in the 1980s. The play — which sounds like a horror show but really isn’t –, follows the adventures of five college kids who visit 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 housewares employee, turned demon killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons are telling bad jokes… and all to music. The play made its debut in 2003 in Toronto, opened in 2004 in Montreal as a featured attraction at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival and, in 2006, made its Off-Broadway debut.
Beavercreek Community Theatre’s Edge of the Creek Productions will present the horror comedy at 8 p.m. on Oct. 21, 22, 28 and 29 and at 3 p.m. on Oct. 23 and 30. Edge of the Creek is the production arm of BCT that specializes in shows for adult audiences and “Evil Dead The Musical” fits into that genre.
The Beavercreek Community Theatre cast, under the direction of Chris Harmon and choreographed by Annette Looper, includes Dean Swann, Lindsay Sherman, Angele Price, Bethany Locklear, Jonathan Berry, Michael Shannon, Lynn Kesson and Darren Brown.
Tickets are $13 for adults and $11 for students, BCT members and seniors, ages 55 and older. A group discount of $1 per ticket is available to groups of 10 or more when the tickets are purchased at the same time for the same performance.
