Evil Dead: The Musical makes its Vancouver premiere– wait a second. I’m having a major case of déjà-vu. I feel like I’ve already written this before. Oh, that’s right, I did write this . . . last week!
Just to be clear, there is now a second and entirely different production of Evil Dead: The Musical playing in Vancouver this Halloween. Is anyone else feeling a bit awkward?
Let’s try it from the top. Ground Zero Theatre, Hit & Myth Productions and Keystone present the Vancouver premiere of Evil Dead: The Musical at the Vogue Theatre from October 20-31, 2009.
Evil Dead: The Musical has drawn multiple comparisons to The Rocky Horror Show for its funny take on the low-budget Evil Dead horror trilogy. I, for one, am looking forward to seeing both productions and both casts. After multiple listens of the cast recording over the past week, I’m definitely getting into the Halloween spirit.
Evil Dead: The Musical features Kevin Corey, Lynley Hall, Bruce Horak, Daniel Mallet, Cailin Stadnyk, Jamie Tognazzini, Tyler Rive, and Guilly Urra. Many local theatre-goers will remember Ovation Award winner Stadnyk from roles in past Arts Club and TUTS’ productions.
Directed by Kevin McKendrick, choreography by Glenda Stirling, and musical direction by Brent Rock, Evil Dead: The Musical plays October 20- 31, 2009 at the Vogue Theatre, 918 Granville St. Tickets are available online now.
