Something wicked this way comes: Vaude Villain Entertainment brings “Evil Dead: The Musical” to life at Good Luck Macbeth

By Miriam Hodgman

unnamedGood Luck Macbeth Theater Company closes their 2014 season with cult classic favorite horror film turned musical, “Evil Dead.” Vaude Villain Entertainment, a local production company in town, launches the musical September 26 at Good Luck Macbeth for a 14 performance run.

Evil Dead“, the iconic 1981 horror film, maintains a fervent and die-hard fan base that has only continued to grow over the years. With the recent remake of the film last year, fans – old and new – have fallen in love with the ghoulish allure of “Evil Dead.”

 John Fredrick and Ashley Marie James , co-founders and creators of Vaude Villain Entertainment, met while performing in a local musical production and immediately created a bond over their mutual love of “Evil Dead: The Musical.”

Fredrick and James made it their shared mission to bring it to Reno audiences. James stated, “The production features fantastic music, hilarious one-liners, gore and all of the camp of the original movies.”

Christopher Daniels, Managing Director for Good Luck Macbeth, feels, “the production is a perfect fit for the Halloween season and a beautiful way to close out our 2014 season.”

Audiences can expect a truly immersive theatrical experience.  People sitting in the first couple rows of the theater will be knee-deep in our “splatter zone” and can expect to get sprayed with fake blood – no worries, t-shirts and trash bags are available for purchase – and demonically-possessed trees shall serve up a whole host of concessions.

“Evil Dead: The Musical” premieres at Good Luck Macbeth Theater – 713 S. Virginia Street – September 26 at 7:30 p.m. and runs through October 31. Tickets are $13 and can be purchased at Never Ender, at the door, or at www.goodluckmacbeth.org. The show is rated R for explicit language and very strong adult themes.
