Evil Dead: The Musical - The CAST!
Directed by James Huie
Several college students spend the weekend in an abandoned cabin in the woods, accidentally unleashing an evil terror. In this comedic take on the 80s horror franchise, characters and demons sing and dance to songs written specifically for the musical. And, as in the films, Ash is there to dish out his various one-liners and fight the never-ending army of deadites.
Audiences are typically warned that the first few rows are in the "Splatter Zone"; the section that is in the closest range of the blood effects.
I want to thank everyone who came out to audition, as well as everyone who missed it and reached out later because they didn't want to miss such an event! We have an amazing cast, ensemble, crew, and can't wait to "Do the Necronomicon" with you all!

We need directors! If you are a director looking to put a show on stage, either your own original work, or an existing title, contact the Board of Directors for more information.
We are currently in the process of significant renovations, and parts of the theatre are under construction. Please excuse our mess while we improve our theatre for the community and you, our patrons.
Help Support Our Community Theatre
In order to provide the services described above, we depend on the community for the bulk of our support, both financial and staffing. While much of our income is from ticket and ad sales, these two alone are rarely enough to see us through a season by themselves. Therefore, we regularly have to supplement our income via corporate sponsorships, grants, profit sharing programs, and charitable donations from the community.
Sponsorship of a Birdcage Theatre production is a visible demonstration of your commitment to the cultural and economic development of our community. Choosing to sponsor a show can complement your company's marketing and community involvement strategies and provide a unique opportunity for employee or client entertainment. We are deeply grateful for the support of our Show Sponsors and are glad to recognize their support in the following ways:
Publicity Benefits: Season Brochure: Your business name and/or logo will be included in our season brochure.
Other Advertising: Your logo will be featured on our show posters. Your logo will also be included on our website.
Play Programs: Your business logo or name will be printed on the front cover of your play’s program. A complimentary half-page thank you advertisement will also be placed inside the program.
Curtain Speech: You will be thanked publicly for your support before every performance of your sponsored play.
Tickets: Reward yourself, clients or employees with complimentary tickets to the show you sponsor.
Please take a look at the 'Sponsorship Form' below for additional details, and instructions for submission.
