EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL Cast to Appear at Salt Lake City Comic Con, 9/5-7
The Salt Lake City Comic Con, which runs from Thursday, September 5 through Saturday the 7th, is is proving to be an impressive affair, with guests the likes of William Shatner, Dirk Benedict, Adam West, and Ray Park - and these are to name but a few. And among these guests will also be Las Vegas' very own EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL. Ash and the Gang have been invited to join in the fun at Utah's first comic convention. They will be taking pics with fans and other celebrities at their booth near ARTIST ALLEY, giving away tickets to the show throughout the convention, presenting a panel on zombies in pop culture, selling convention-exclusive merchandise, and they'll even be presenting a family-friendly version 30 minute sneak peek of the productions.
"This will be a lot of fun," said Sirc Michaels, the producer and director of EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL. "At first we were unsure about doing a family-friendly version of our show. Our show is anything but family friendly. But once we were done putting it together we realized it is absolutely fantastic and should be a great deal of fun for all ages. Those who want to see the full version of the show will just have to come to Sin City and check it out."
SCHEDULE OF EVIL DEAD EVENT at SLC Comic Con:
Thurs, Fri, Sat 9/5, 9/6, 9/7
There will be convention-only merchandise on-hand for sale that was created less than a month ago. Attendees will get to see it and get their hands on it before anyone else. Ash and the Gang will be there to sign autographs and/or take pictures with fans. S-Mart staff will be on-hand to answer any questions about our production!
2pm - ZOMBIE POP - The Undead in Pop Culture hosted by Sirc Michaels & The Cast of EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL
Sirc Michaels and cast members will be discussing various elements of zombies in pop culture, much like the title suggests. They'll also be discussing a bit about EVIL DEAD, rumors of upcoming projects, and may even be giving out tickets, t-shirts, and other swag for those who attend.
1pm - FAMILY-FRIENDLY PERFORMANCE
Ash and the Gang will be giving the convention a taste of what can be expected at the show in Sin City. This will be a 30 minute preview of the production. Since it was asked to be family friendly, the cast has embraced this thoroughly and has created a parody of their own show, which is itself a parody. This makes this performance something unique and a must-see for fans going to the SLC Comic Con.
Fri 9/6 & Sat 9/7
Ash and the Gang will be wandering around the convention, taking pics with fans and unsuspecting conventioneers. They'll also be handing out free swag at times.
Fri 9/6 & Sat 9/7
Fans and convention attendees are encouraged to watch EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL's twitter feed and check out their events at the convention, because they plan on giving some cool stuff away.
