Here is the blurb about the musical from the MVCC theater site:

  • Evil Dead: The Musical, Nov. 5-7 at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 8 at 3 p.m.Dorothy Menker Theater, Directed by Tommy HenselBook & Lyrics By George Reinblatt, Music By Frank Cipolla/Christopher Bond/Melissa Morris/George Reinblatt: Based on Sam Raimi’s 1980s cult classic films, Evil Dead tells the tale of five college kids who travel to a cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force. And although it may sound like a horror, it’s not! The songs are hilariously campy, and the show is bursting with more farce than a Monty Python skit. 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, Look Who’s Evil Now and Do the Necronomicon.
