It's that old chestnut. Five college kids go to a random cabin in the woods and unleash evil Candarian demons bent on taking over the world, and your soul. A classic story.
Evil Dead: The Musical combines the antics of the movies Evil Dead, Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn, and Army of Darkness. What those movies lacked, of course, was musical numbers. George Reinblatt has given us this gift, and accompanied with a full Splatter Zone, this wonderful music will be brought to evil life! HAHAHAHA ....
Ghost Light Theater was created specifically to present lesser known works that will engage, challenge, possess, enthrall, and enslave our audience. Wait, not those last three. Definitely entertain. It is our goal that audiences see plays and musicals that are out of the norm, not typically seen in a community theater.
In the last two years we successfully produced The Woman in Black by Stephen Mallatrat and Bug by Tracy Letts. The success of these two shows has convinced us that our audience is eager for more. Evil Dead will be our first musical production, and we intend to give it the attention, dazzle, and blood that it deserves! With songs like Look Who's Evil Now, All the Men In My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons, and Do the Necronomicon, it's sure to warm the hearts of all ages! Except for the kids. Definitely leave the kids home.
We are also joining forces with members of Lich King, nationally recognized thrash metal band whose home is in Greenfield, MA. They are ready to give the show the heaviness it deserves!
Why We Need Help
As this is our first musical, this show is incredibly expensive. The rights are on limited release this year, so we're lucky to get our filthy hands on them. Added to that are the ambitious special effects. We have to make appliances for all of our undead demons, and we need blood! The most blood ever! Enough blood to have our audiences drowning in wave after wave! Or at least enough to stain your whites! And severed limbs! And shotguns! And a talking moose head!
So c’mon, wouldn’t it be pretty groovy to help us out? Come get some great incentives and see us at the show! JOOOIIINN USSS
Risks and challenges
Without the success of this fundraiser, the project is, simply put, dead as a doornail. These funds will allow us to move forward and give everyone an amazing Halloween performance!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
