Cape Fear Regional Theatre
See Event Website for Show Times

The heartbreaks of showbiz, love, and music all collide in Dreamgirls to create a modern-day classic that is sure to sing and dance its way into your heart. Set in the music scene of the 1960s and 70s, a young female singing trio gets their big break, but as their star rises so do tensions in the group. Things begin to spin out of control when their egomaniacal agent singles out one to be the leader. Friendships are destroyed, and each girl must discover the strength and fortitude to find their dreams once again. With legendary songs, stunning choreography, and plenty of sequin gowns, this timeless musical explodes on stage with electricity. Show runs through October 8, 2017. (Musical)

Event Admission: $17 - $32

Evil Dead: The Musical

Gilbert Theater
Show Times on Event Website

The Gilbert Theater's first show of the 2017-2018 season is Evil Dead: The Musical, with book and lyrics by George Reinblatt. Five college students spend the weekend in an abandoned cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. It’s all up to our hero, Ash, and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Evil Dead: The Musical has it all – some dismembered limbs, demons telling bad jokes, and catchy tunes. Audiences will love this record-breaking musical comedy sensation that takes all the elements of Sam Raimi’s cult classic films (The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness) to make one of the craziest theatrical experiences of all time! Show runs through October 8, 2017.

Event Admission: $14 - $16
