Evil Dead: The Musical
October 11 - November 2, 2019

Book and Lyrics By George Reinblatt
Music By Frank Cipolla, Christopher Bond, Melissa Morris, and George Reinblatt
Additional Music by Christopher Bond, Melissa Morris, and George Reinblatt

Just in time for Halloween, the musical inspired by Sam Raimi's ‘80s cult classic returns to the Pollard stage. EVIL DEAD tells the tale of 5 college kids who travel to a cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force. And although it may sound like just a horror, it's way more! The songs are hilariously campy and the show is bursting with more farce than a Monty Python skit. EVIL DEAD: THE MUSICAL unearths the old familiar story: boy and friends take a weekend getaway at abandoned cabin, boy expects to get lucky, boy unleashes ancient evil spirit, friends turn into Candarian Demons, boy fights until dawn to survive.

The New York Times proclaims PUFFS, “A FAST-PACED ROMP through the ‘Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic.’ For POTTERphiliacs who grew up alongside Potter and are eager to revisit that world, ‘PUFFS’ exudes a jovial, winking fondness for all things Harry!”
