Barn brings Evil Dead to life

A musical twist on the 1981 cult classic movie Evil Dead and its sequels will be performed at the Barn Theatre Aug. 27-Sept. 1.

Evil Dead, a low-budget horror film, follows Ash and a group of college students vacationing at a cabin in the woods. What was meant to be a fun and relaxing getaway turns into demonic possession and absolute gore. The film spawned several sequels as well as video games, comic books and a TV series.

Evil Dead: The Musical was created at a comedy club in Toronto in 2003 and opened off-Broadway in 2006. It has since lived on with such songs as “All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons” and "Boomstick."

Show times are 8 p.m. Aug. 27-31 and 5 p.m. Sept. 1, and ticket prices are $39–$48. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit barntheatreschool.org or call 731-4121.
