Evil Dead

We would like to invite you to audition for our final Adult Series production of Evil Dead: The Musical! The show will run from October 20th through the 31st. There will be 7 shows total:

Friday October 20th @ 7 pm
Saturday October 21st @ 7 pm
Saturday October 21st @ Midnight
Friday October 27th @ 7 pm
Saturday October 28th @ 7 pm
Saturday October 28th @ Midnight
Tuesday October 31st (Halloween) @ 7 pm!

This show will be directed by Dennis Curry and choreographed by Jennifer Jeanelle!

This show is a dark, raunchy comedy with a lot of adult humor so we are only casting 18+! We will be using copious amounts of fake blood so there will be a “splash zone” in the audience AND we will have a full live rock band for the show!

Auditions will take place Tuesday August 22nd and Thursday August 24th; both will start @ 8 pm!
All auditions will end when we finish with the last audition (so don’t be late!).

All roles are available EXCEPT for Old Reliable Jake, who will be played by Dennis Curry! we will be casting based on ability – not how long people have been with us (so, new people are definitely welcome!)

Character breakdown:
•Ash (Tenor/Baritone) – hero and iconic character of the musical! devoted S-Mart housewares employee who evolves over the course of the show from a cowardly college student to a wise cracking deadite slayer with his detachable hand chainsaw and 12 gauge “boomstick”

•Linda (Soprano) – the prototypical girl next door, sweet, thoughtful, and completely devoted to Ash….until she turns evil and tries to kill him!

•Cheryl (Mezzo-Soprano)
Ash’s sister and the odd woman out in the group! Looking to spend a week relaxing, she is the recipient of Scotty’s jokes and torment. She’s the only one to sense the evil surrounding the cabin and she is the first to be possessed, turning her into an aggressive, foul mouthed demon that speaks in very bad puns (spends the majority of the show locked in the cellar)

•Scotty (Tenor/Baritone)
a prankster and Ash’s best friend! Thinks himself the brave one until he’s forced to kill, then his panic leads him to flee! He returns to warn Ash about the woods and attempts to help his friend even as he is knocking on death’s door.

•Shelly (Mezzo-Soprano)
beautiful, easy, and not too smart! She’s Scotty’s latest fling and looking to party and just because she becomes an evil demon doesn’t mean she can’t look good doing it!

•Annie (Mezzo-Soprano)
the overbearing, sexy, explorer who finds missing pages to the Necronomicon and wants to reunite with her father to continue their research. She’s very bossy and drawn to Ash! Must be comfortable in a tear away revealing costume.

•Ed (Tenor/Baritone)
Annie’s coworker/boyfriend/doormat. He travels with her to the cabin to proceed with their research of the book of the dead! After turning evil, his confidence may lack but this “Bit Part Demon” is ready to sing.

Ensemble will include a demonic talking moose head, dancing trees, Professor Knowby, the devil and many more zany characters!

Please come in with a karaoke/instrumental CD OR sheet music of a 16-32 bar cut of a song and bring your headshot and resume (if you don’t have a headshot or a resume, please fill out an audition form and attach a clear photo of your face for our use!)
