FINALLY!! Evil Dead: The Musical is coming to southern California!

It's been all over the east coast and midwest. Ash and the Deadites even made a stop in Korea! After five years of being outside of SoCal's radar, the bloodiest musical EVER is going to be performed at Center Stage Theater in Santa Barbara, CA. from October 27-31, 2011!

However, there's one problem...

The makeup effects cost money. Standard methods for "blood delivery" won't work for a show like this. We will need to redesign all our pumps and blood cannons to be hidden in the set and operated from backstage. This means a lot more tubing, valves, and of course, blood! 40 gallons of it to be exact. Perfectly sprayed all over you and your friends while you're sitting in the "Splatter Zone"! In addition to the blood and the elaborate plumbing system to shoot it, we'll be making some other fun things for the show including custom latex masks for all the zombie characters. The masks we're offering as a reward are castings from these same molds!

Whatever you can help out with is very sincerely appreciated. We (the special effects artists) are committed to delivering a great final product that everyone will enjoy. Your donations are absolutely essential to making this the best, bloodiest production of Evil Dead: The Musical possible. So please, won't ya help a zombie out?
