Ground Zero Theatre and Hit&Myth Productions (Urinetown: The Musical and The Full Monty) invade Calgary with the biggest, baddest, boldest production yet -- Evil Dead: The Musical, the smash hit show from Toronto, which has all the makings to be this decade’s Rocky Horror Show.
Based on Sam Raimi's cult hit movie series (Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn, Army of Darkness) five vacationing college students break into a secluded cabin in the woods. There they discover The Necronomicon, an ancient flash-bound book containing blood-inked spells with the power to summon the demons of Candar. (Following along?)
After playing a tape recording with passages read aloud from the sinister book, the group unwittingly unleashes evil spirits who successfully turn them all into demons.
It’s up to Ash, the meek S-mart Housewares employee, to fight off the demons any way he can. Or... he'll be dead by dawn. All to show tunes such as "What the F*ck was THAT?" and "All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Cadarian Demons!")
GZT and H&M are bloody thrilled to be the first Canadian companies outside of Toronto to present this wildly entertaining, blood-splattering, campy good time at the theatre.
But dear audiences, BEWARE! If you sit too close to the stage, in the area we like to call "The SPLATTER ZONE," you are bound to leave the theatre covered in demon blood. Ask for the Splatter Zone by name when you book your tickets!
