Mavis Theatre Productions will be holding auditions for their November Production of “Evil Dead – The Musical” based on Sam Raimi’s ’80s cult classic films, the musical tells the tale of five college kids who travel to a cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force. And although it may sound like a horror, it’s not! The songs are hilariously campy and the show is bursting with more farce than a Monty Python skit.
