It’s not every day that a friend and I leave a musical, covered in stage blood, and singing along to an upbeat tune about a cabin in the woods. This jolly good time, complete with guts, gore, and entertaining musical numbers, was Evil Dead The Musical and it’s coming back to Vancouver this Halloween.

Evil Dead The Musical

Evil Dead The Musical is based on the Sam Raimi 80s cult classic which tells the age old tale: 5 college kids travel to an abandoned cabin in the woods, boy meets girl, boy expects to get lucky, boy unleashes evil spirit, girl meets the big bad and boy meets chainsaw instead. Friends into lovers, lovers into friends, and friends into Candarian Demons. Mayhem ensues, and don’t forget the spectacular singing and dancing. Evil Dead includes hilarious numbers like, “All the Men in my Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons,” “Look Who’s Evil Now” and “Do the Necronomicon.”

What is the splatter zone, you ask? It is exactly what it sounds like! The front row of the theatre is designated “The Splatter Zone.” Those who buy tickets for the front row understand they will come away splattered with blood and that is all a part of the fun.

Evil Dead: The Musical boasts an impressive cast of local professional talent that is led by Scott Walters in the iconic role of Ash. He is joined by his returning cast mates Meghan Anderssen, Mat Baker, Eric Gow, Ian Rozylo, Matthew Graham, and Jennie Neumann, and introducing the newest addition Andrea Bailey. The award winning design team includes: Set Design by John Bessette, Lighting Design by Darren Hales, Make-up Design by Richard Elsom, Costume Design by Oriana Camporese, Stage Management by Robin Richardson and it is co-produced by Allyson McGrane of Left Right Minds. The production will also feature music from a live local band.
