About the Show
Evil Dead: the Musical! is a hilarious, campy parody based on the cult classic horror trilogy by Sam Raimi. Five college students head to a cabin in the woods for spring break, but instead of relaxation and beer, they find the Book of the Dead.
For the full Evil Dead experience, sit in the splatter zone and get covered in blood!
