‘This … is my boom stick!’

“It’s an old tale. You’ve probably heard it a hundred times. Boy and his friends go on a weeklong vacation in the woods. Three friends turn into Candarian demons. One friend is killed by a forest of evil trees. Two demons are killed by their boyfriends respectively, while one stays in the cellar trying to kill everything in sight. Like I said, pretty standard stuff.” — Ash

This hilarious live stage show takes all the elements of the cult classic horror films “Evil Dead 1,” “Evil Dead 2” and “Army of Darkness” then combines them to make one of the craziest theatrical experiences of all time. Last season Sutter Street Theatre’s production “Evil Dead The Musical” nearly sold out all performances.

Don’t miss your chance this year to sit in the Splatter Zone, laugh at the raunchy humor and get up close and personal with Good Old Reliable Jake.

Book and lyrics for “Evil Dead The Musical” were written by George Reinblatt with music by Frank Cipolla, Christopher Bond, Melissa Morris and George Reinblatt. Sutter Street Theatre’s production is directed by Michael Coleman and stars Elio Guiterrez as the chainsaw-wielding, “gimme some sugar, baby” hero Ash.

“Evil Dead The Musical” showtimes are at 8 p.m. on Oct. 12, 13, 19. 20, 25, 26, 27, 28; 4 p.m. on Oct. 14, 21, 28; and 11:55 p.m. on Oct. 20, 25, 26, 27.  Tickets may be purchased by calling the box office at (916) 353-1001 or going online to SutterStreetTheatre.com. The opening performance includes a reception with the cast and director immediately following the show.
