About the Show

For our final production, ATC returns to the deep forest of the Barn at MoRA for more spooky fall fun with the musical based on Sam Raimi’s 80’s cult classic films.

When five college friends go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, their plans of jello shots and strip poker are dashed when they accidentally unleash an evil force that begins taking them out one-by-one. Blood will fly. Limbs will be dismembered. And demons will tell really bad jokes. It’s all up to Ash and his trusty chainsaw to save the day as musical mayhem descends upon this sleepover in the woods and “camp” takes on a whole new meaning.
