About Evil Dead the Musical (High School Edition)
None of the swearing—all of the blood! This full-length adaptation of the hilarious off-Broadway musical is tailor-made for high-school performers. Evil Dead The Musical (High School Version) takes all the elements of the cult classic films The Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness and combines them into 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 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. Songs like “All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons” and “What the Heck Was That?” will have audiences rolling in their seats and screaming for more and more blood. This show has fun with the horror genre and, in doing so, appeals to a wide audience. And with this combination of blood, jokes, cheesy effects and awesome musical numbers, Evil Dead The Musical (High School Version) is unlike any show you’ve ever seen.
