*Age ranges are very subjective with this show. Therefore I am not listing a range. I only ask you be 18 years of age or over.
*All characters with the exception of the Fake Shemp must be able to follow dance and varying degrees of fight choreography. This show is very campy if you have two left feet and a heart of gold still audition.
Male– 4 Female – 5 Male/Female – 4
Ash – (Baritone) The hero and iconic character of the musical, devoted S-Mart employee evolves from cowardly college student to a wise cracking deadite slayer with his detachable hand chainsaw and 12 gauge “boomstick”
Cheryl – (Alto) Ash’s sister and the tag along in the group, recipient of Scotty’s jokes/torment, goes from sweet and geeky to aggressive, foul mouthed demon that speaks in very bad puns, spends the majority of the show locked in the cellar.
Shelly – (Alto) Beautiful, easy, and not too smart; Scotty’s latest fling and looking to party; just because she becomes an evil demon doesn’t mean she can’t look good doing it
Annie – (Alto) Very over bearing, sexy, explorer who finds missing pages to the Necronomicon and wants to reunite with her father to continue their research; very bossy and drawn to Ash.
Linda – (Soprano) Girl next door; sweet, thoughtful, and completely devoted to Ash, until she turns evil and tries to kill him
SCOTT: Male, (Range: Tenor)Doesn’t care about anyone other than himself, unless they can get him laid. Constantly demeaning. Makes fun of people for being scared of obviously creepy things (like talking trees). Blatant and straight to the point.
ED: Male, Mid 20′s (Range: Bass)Deeply in love with Annie. Nothing special about him. Longs to be more than just an extra character within the musical. DOUBLES MOOSE, a possessed moose head on the wall of the cabin.
JAKE: Male, Mid 30′s (Range: Baritone)Good, old, and reliable. Seems to know far too much about the musical. Spends his time wandering the woods around the cabin.
FAKE SHEMP: Male, Age Flexible (Range: Ensemble/Part Flexible)This role is basically all of the small roles in the show – the severed hand, the headless body, etc. It is also optional, and if the director desires, these small roles can be divided up amongst the other actors in the show.
4 – Evil Trees – Taunting and well evil they terrorize the group and get way to handsy with Cheryl
“Evil Dead: The Musical” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
