Mall,1-6 on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

Dinner Menu: Chicken Marsala, vegetablewith rolls and salad.

Plot: Based on Sam Raimi's 80s cult classic films, EVIL DEAD tells the tale of 5 college kids who travel to a cabin in the woods and
accidentally unleash an evil force. And although it may sound like a horror, it's not! The songs are hilariously campy and the show is
bursting with more farce than a Monty Python skit. EVIL DEAD: THE MUSICAL unearths the old familiar story: boy and friends take a
weekend getaway at abandoned cabin, boy expects to get lucky, boy unleashes ancient evil spirit, friends turn into Candarian
Demons, boy fights until dawn to survive. As musical mayhem descends upon this sleepover in the woods, "camp" takes on a whole
new meaning with uproarious numbers like "All the Men in my Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons," "Look Who's Evil Now"
and "Do the Necronomicon."

Evil Dead  "is a stupid show. It's a cheesy show.
It's a downright ridiculous show. But it's
supposed to be....But that's what fans turned out
for -- a tribute to the notoriously bad film they
love and a few laughs at its expense. "
-Chris Baker

"The show, a musical rendition of the 1981 Sam Raimi cult classic
horror flick, calls upon the ridiculousness of the plot and amps up
the kitsch with buckets of blood, sardonic songs and even a
singing mounted moose head. It’s the timeless tale of a boy and
his friends on spring break batting evil forces of Candarian
demons with shotguns, chainsaws and the Book of the Dead."

"it’s the first show to have its own designated
“splatter zone,”.....moves the action even faster than
the film...sure to please Rocky Horror fans."
