Mount Baker Theatre¬†in Bellingham, WA presents Evil Dead-The Musical for a one-night engagement, Saturday, October 7 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are now available for this macabre musical comedy based on one of the most beloved cult franchises in the history of cinema:¬† Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, and Army of Darkness.
In this gleeful, gore-filled performance, five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. With limbs flying, it‚Äôs up to Ash and his trusty chainsaw to save the day! Expect a galvanic score of rock ‚Äėn‚Äô roll, pastiche tunes, and get-down-in-the-aisles-and-boogie music that‚Äôll have you saying, ‚ÄúHail to the king, baby.‚ÄĚ
The New York Times are naming it ‚Äúthe next Rocky Horror show!‚ÄĚ Some attendees get to be a part of the onstage mayhem by sitting in the first few rows, infamously known as the ‚ÄúSplatter Zone.‚ÄĚ In that range, patrons get soaked by stage blood throughout the show.
Evil Dead-The Musical was created by an ambitious group of young people in the back of a small bar in Toronto. In hopes of highlighting the comedy, gore, slapstick, blood, and one-liners of the original ‚ÄúEvil Dead‚ÄĚ films they created Evil Dead-The Musical. Debuting in 2004, the show has become the longest-running show in Toronto in decades and has been performed in Seoul, Tokyo, Las Vegas and some 350 other locations.
Written by George Reinblatt and directed by Christopher Bond.¬† Produced by Starvox Entertainment.
Part of the mission of Mount Baker Theatre is to bring world-class entertainment to Bellingham as the local hub for live performing arts.
