ECCT Presents: Evil Dead The Musical

The Oxford, Eau Claire

Eau Claire, WI – ECCT will present EVIL DEAD: THE MUSICAL May 12-14 at The Oxford, 1814 Oxford Avenue, Eau Claire.

Based on Sam Raimi’s 80s cult films, it’s that classic tale of five college kids who travel to a cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force. Although it sounds like a horror flick, it’s not. The songs are hilarious campy, and the show is bursting with more farce than a Monty Python skit!
Performances are scheduled for Thursday, May 12 through Saturday, May 14 at 7:30 p.m. Reserved seating tickets are $22 for adults and $12 for students. Limited general admission SplatterZone seats will be available for each performance in the front two rows of the theatre. Includes complimentary rain poncho. This performance is rated “R” for strong language.
EVIL DEAD is sponsored in part by Spectrum Reach.
