ATC performs Evil Dead, The Musical

Presented by Levine Properties & Sponsored by Morris Costumes

You watched them Rock The Barn last season with live musical performances of Rock of Ages and The Rocky Horror Show.  Now the ghouls are back in town! Don’t miss ATC’s (Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte) production of Evil Dead, The Musical this fall at The Barn at MoRA.

Plus, a special Zombie Makeup Tutorial event preceding the show on Oct. 8. Read on for the details.

The Show

Evil Dead, The Musical is 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.

ATC returns deep into the forests of The Barn at MoRA for more spooky fall fun. Real Deadites will want to experience the SPLATTER ZONE– a specially designated seating area that puts you in the middle of the action. Join uuuusssss!!!”

Dates:  Sept. 29 – Oct. 30, 2022


This show contains mature themes and language. Recommended age is 16+

“We are excited to welcome ATC back to the area,” says Kathy Hill, chair of MoRA. “This location is a truly special place, which Levine Properties has provided to ATC for their performances two years in a row.”

You will be seated among towering oak trees, next to a 100-year old dairy barn and silos. Where else in the city can you find a space this unique? Come out and enjoy live musical theater under the stars.
