Radical Arts presents the first show of its first season, Evil Dead: The Musical, at Murfreesboro Little Theatre, playing every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 14–30 at 7 p.m.
Based on Sam Raimi’s ’80s cult classic films, Evil Dead: The Musical tells the tale of five 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.
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 is also interactive and the audience can expect to be sprayed with fake blood.
Special VIP packages are available, and they include seating in the “Splatter Zone,” a Radical Arts/Evil Dead T-shirt to put on and get covered in blood during the show, and a high-quality art print designed specifically for the show.
Radical Arts is determined to find, promote and produce the artistic elements that are overlooked in Murfreesboro’s rich community, and the group plans to branch out into all elements of art. Music, poetry, community art projects, puppets and more are all in the future for Murfreesboro, according to Radical Arts members.
Murfreesboro Little Theatre is located at 702 Ewing Blvd.
