UW-Madison offers a bloody good time with this hilarious show that takes all the elements of the cult classic films The Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness and combines them into one of the craziest theatrical experiences of all time. Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. It's all up to Ash (a housewares employee turned demon-killing hero) and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons tell bad jokes all to music!

The cast features Josie Brandmeier, Gabrielle Bruns, Faith Fuller, Ben Jaeger, Elaine Knaus, Ethan Nimmer, Caitlin Rowe, Cobi Tappa, Sam Vinitsky, and Tanner Zocher under the direction of Jace Nichols with musical direction by Erin McConnell. The choreographer is Sara Bartlett, scenic design is by Keith Pitts, costume design by Shannon Heibler, lighting and sound design by Jeff Parulski.

Recommended for ages 17 and up.
