Evil Dead, The Musical
October 9 - 31
Evil Dead makes its Central Texas premiere this October at Salvage Vanguard Theatre in Austin.
About the Show: With the approval of film director Sam Raimi and star Bruce Campbell, a musical version of the film Evil Dead was staged. The musical takes creative liberty with the plot line of the cult film trilogy, mixing together the characters and concepts of all three.
The original production enjoyed a successful run in Toronto and Montreal. The show went on to gain favorable responses from both critics and audiences during its 2006-2007 off-Broadway run. The musical has gone on to subsequent performances in Louisville, KY, Seoul, Korea, and Tokyo, Japan.
October 9-31. Performances will be at 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and 5 p.m. on Sundays.
Salvage Vanguard Theatre, 2803 Manor Rd., Austin, TX 78722
Tickets: Thursday and Sunday: $18 General/$12 students and seniors; Friday and Saturday: $22 General/$15 students and seniors. Opening and Closing Night: $25 General/$20 student and seniors. See www.salvagevanguard.org for additional information and online ticket sales.
