EVIL DEAD: THE MUSICAL

OCT. 5-OCT 7, 2017  @8PM
For Mature Audiences

This hilarious live stage show takes all the elements of the cult classic films, The Evil DeadEvil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness and combines them for one of the craziest theatrical experiences of all time.  Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. It’s all up to Ash (a housewares employee, turned demon-killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons tell bad jokes… and all to music.  The songs in the show are completely off the wall as well. Titles like “All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons” and “What the F**k was That?” has had audiences rolling in their seats, and screaming for more and more blood.  You don’t need to be a fan of Evil Dead to love this show. You don’t need to be a fan of horror to love this show. You don’t even need to be a fan of musicals to love this show. As long as you like having fun… this show is for you.  Is it scary?  No!  Is it gory?  No.  This is a pure comedy start to finish.  It has fun with the horror genre, and in doing so appeals to a wider audience than you could ever imagine.  Plus, it’s the only show with a “Splatter Zone” – a section of the audience that gets covered in fake blood.  And with this combination of blood, jokes, cheesy effects, and really awesome musical numbers, Evil Dead The Musical is unlike any live show you’ve ever seen.

While the Evil Dead films are the definition of cult movies, as a stage show, Evil Dead The Musical has become a cult sensation of its own.  The show played Off-Broadway in New York, has broken records in Toronto, has won awards in Korea, and has had over 200 productions mounted across the globe.  Critics rave about it, with everyone from The New York Times to Maxim Magazine giving it top marks.  And because this show appeals to both the fans of the films (of which there’s still tons), and the new audience who loves it purely as a stage show, theatres who put on Evil Dead are blown away by the audience response.  Evil Dead The Musical is truly the grooviest show you will ever experience.  So what are you waiting for?

THE ALTRUISTS

NOV. 16- NOV 18, 2017 @7:30pm

THE ALTRUISTS revolves around a dedicated, if disorganized and demented, group of young radicals. These are the kids who protest. They protest arts funding and arms funding. They protest school cutbacks and AIDS cutbacks and welfare cutbacks. They march for gay rights and children's rights and Women Against Drunk Drivers. But their morality is put to the test one day when Sydney, a shallow, anorexic soap-opera actress, fires a gun into the hulking body of her sleeping boyfriend.

A funny, dark and thought provoking look at our world!  This play contains strong language and some PG-13 content.

 

LEARNED LADIES

FEB 22-FEB 24, 2018 @7:30PM

During the Salon movement of the 17th century, women, thirsty for knowledge and freedom, began to read, discuss and absorb all the learning they could now get their hands on. Frequently, into that mix came sycophants and opportunists, to take advantage of the budding but not fully formed intelligence of the Women's Movement. Enter Trissotin, a mediocre poet with a lot of sex appeal and little literary talent, who all but seduces Philamente, determined to be at the forefront of the movement. Equally determined to marry him off to her younger daughter (who just wants to marry her sweetheart Lycandre and raise children), she bullies her meek husband into tacitly agreeing, and the machinations that follow between family members, visiting poets and maids who refuse to learn proper French are predictably and delightfully Molière. This version strays from a strictly literal translation of the play, often employing anachronisms in the rhymed couplets that may appall purists, but have delighted audiences since its original inception.
 

DAMES AT SEA

APRIL 26- APRIL 28, 2018 @7:30PM
GREAT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!!!

A long-running hit Off Broadway that brought stardom to Bernadette Peters, this campy show is based on the nostalgia of Hollywood musicals of the '30s. It's big-time New York, into which sweet little Ruby from faraway Hometown, U.S.A. has come to make it big on Broadway. Who should she chance to meet but another boy from Hometown, U.S.A.: Dick, a sailor, who also has ambitions as a songwriter. Ruby begins in the chorus, and by the end of the day, in true Hollywood fashion, Dick saves her doomed Broadway show with a smash tune, as Ruby becomes a star on the deck of a battleship, which just happens to be passing by. Selected as "Best Musical of the Year" by Time, Newsweek, and the Outer Critics Circle.
