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.” This show contains mature content and language.
**ALL ROLES ARE AVAILABLE AND WILL BE PAID**
Ash (Male, Mid 20s – Tenor/Baritone): The hero and iconic character of the musical. This devoted S-Mart housewares employee evolves over the course of the show from a cowardly college student to a wise cracking deadite slayer with his detachable hand chainsaw and 12 gauge “boomstick.”
Linda (Female, Mid 20s – Mezzo-Soprano): The prototypical girl next door. Linda is sweet, thoughtful, and completely devoted to Ash, until she turns evil and tries to kill him. She laughs an annoyingly inordinate amount of time after transforming.
Cheryl (Female, Mid 20s – Mezzo-Soprano): Ash’s sister and the odd woman out in the group. Looking to spend a week relaxing, she is the recipient of Scotty’s jokes and torment. The only one to sense the evil surrounding the cabin, she is the first to be possessed, turning her into an aggressive, foul mouthed demon that speaks in very bad puns. Spends the majority of the show locked in the cellar.
Scotty (Male, Mid 20s – Tenor/Baritone): Good looking, cocky, a prankster and Ash’s best friend. Thinks himself the brave one until he’s forced to kill, then his panic leads him to flee. He returns to warn Ash about the woods and attempts to help his friend even as he is knocking on death’s door.
Shelly (Female, Mid 20s – Mezzo-Soprano): Beautiful, easy, and not too smart. She is Scotty’s latest fling and looking to party. Just because she becomes an evil demon doesn’t mean she can’t look good doing it! Often combined with Annie. We will consider splitting the role.
Annie (Female, Mid 20s-30s – Mezzo-Soprano): Quite the overbearing explorer who finds missing pages to the Necronomicon and wants to reunite with her father to continue their research. Very bossy and drawn to Ash. Must be comfortable in a tear away semi-revealing costume
Ed (Male, Mid 20s-30s – Tenor/Baritone): Annie’s coworker, fiance, and doormat. He travels with her to the cabin to proceed with their research of the book of the dead. After turning evil, his confidence may lack but this “Bit Part Demon” is ready to sing!
Jake (Male, Any Age – Tenor/Baritone): Stereotypical Southerner and reliable enough to help Annie and Ed find the path to the cabin, but too stupid and stubborn to listen to reason that will keep him alive.
Moose (Male, Voice/Puppet Role – Tenor/Baritone): A possessed, singing, Candarian Demon moose head! That enough makes it awesome, except once moose get going they never stop! Often combined with Professor and Fake Shemp, or Ed.
Professor Knowby (Adult 40+, Non-singing): Annie’s father and researcher of the Necronomicon. Traveled to cabin to continue his research on the book and mistakenly released the evil that dwelled within the woods. He appears twice in the show but is heard at various times as a Voice-Over recording on the tape. Often combined with Moose and Fake Shemp
Fake Shemp – Ash’s severed hand that runs around stage. Often combined with Moose and Professor.
