CSC Presents 'Evil Dead: The Musical'

The Chadron State College Theatre Department will perform "Evil Dead: The Musical" Thursday, Oct. 3 - Saturday, Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 6 at 2 p.m. in Memorial Hall's Auditorium. Tickets are not required. Suitable for ages 14 and older due to language and violence.

In "Evil Dead: The Musical," five college students spend the weekend in an abandoned cabin in the woods, accidentally unleashing an evil terror. In this comedic take on the 1980s horror franchise, characters and demons sing and dance. And, as in the three films, the character, Ash, dishes out various one-liners and fights the never-ending demons. The musical takes creative liberty with the plot lines of the "Evil Dead" movies, mixing together the characters and concepts, as well as changing the sequence of events for stage and comedic intent.

"Evil Dead: The Musical" will premiere during Theatre Day Oct. 3. About 250 high school students from 11 schools in South Dakota, Nebraska and Wyoming will be on campus for Theatre Day sessions taught by CSC students and faculty about make-up, how to adopt a persona, games, costume design, scene writing, and set, sound and lighting design.
