"Evil Dead: The Musical" returns for its eighth season at the City Theatre

DETROIT (WXYZ) - The hilariously, bloody tradition continues this fall as Evil Dead: The Musical returns for its eighth season at the City Theatre.  A talented pack of local cast members, new and returning, will rise to bring the familiar tale to life with a five-week engagement that ends on Saturday, October 28.

Based on Sam Raimi’s 80’s cult classic films, 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. As musical mayhem descends upon this sleepover in the woods, "camp" takes on a whole new meaning with uproarious numbers like "All the Men in my Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons", "What the F&%* Was That?" and "Do the Necronomicon."

Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at OlympiaEntertainment.com, The Fox Theatre and Little Caesars Arena XFINITY Box Offices and Ticketmaster.com. To charge tickets by phone, call (800) 745-3000.
