Evil Dead: The Musical, a 4-D theatrical experience based on the cult classic film series, is treating audiences to a ghastly delight this Halloween season with the addition of a sickly surprise: more blood. Audience members, specifically those seated in The Splatter Zone, will be treated to "Double the Blood" during additional performances from tonight, Oct. 25, to Thursday, Nov. 1. Cast members will also judge a costume contest for the two Oct. 31 performances so all guests are invited to dress in their scariest, sexiest, or off-the-wall costumes. The costume contest winners will receive a variety of gifts.
"The Splatter Zone has always been a coveted place in our showroom, allowing audiences to sit front and center and be a part of the show," explained Sirc Michaels, producer of Evil Dead: The Musical in Las Vegas. "Doubling the blood used in The Splatter Zone will take the show to an insane level this Halloween season."
In addition to more blood, Evil Dead: The Musical has added seven extra performances to its regular Friday and Saturday night schedule. Additional performance dates and times are as follows:
Thursday, Oct. 25 at 11:30 p.m.
Monday, Oct. 29 at 10 p.m.
Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 10 p.m.
Wednesday, Oct. 31 at 8:30 and 11:30 p.m.
Thursday, Nov. 1 at 8:30 and 11:30 p.m.
"Evil Dead is a cult classic and loved by so many people," added Michaels. "The demand for tickets this Halloween season has been incredible, so we've added additional performances to satisfy the cravings of all those ready to get their 'evil' on!"
Performances from tonight, Oct. 25 through Nov. 1 are expected to sell out and guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance by contacting the box office directly at 702-260-7200.
