It just wouldn’t stay dead. Black Button Eyes Productions brings this loving and cheerfully profane musical parody of Sam Raimi’s classic Evil Dead films back to the city for its Chicago Storefront Premiere. When a group of fresh-faced college kids go to a cabin in the woods for spring break, it’s only a matter of time before spells are spoken and demonic possession begins. Take in the horror and hilarity in the gritty storefront setting where this show belongs!

January 11-February 16, 2019 At The Broadway at Pride Arts Center, 4139 N Broadway Ave, Chicago

Performances Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2 pm, plus one industry/off-night performance on Tuesday, January 29 at 7:30 pm.

Official Opening Night: Friday, January 18 at 7:30 pm

Run time: Approximately 2 hours and 10 minutes, including one 10 minute intermission

It’s time to grab your seat at Creation’s Stranger Con in the Chicago area on October 5-6, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare, as we herald the show Stranger Things!

The Netflix show has captured the imagination of viewers worldwide with its intriguing, otherworldly mysteries and compelling characters, while making huge stars of its young cast.

The fantastic two-day event near the fabulous Windy City will be filled with excitement, music and fun! Headliners Millie Bobby Brown, aka the enigmatic Eleven, and Noah Schnapp, who plays sweet Will Byers, will both be on hand on Sunday, while Caleb McLaughlin, who portrays the brave Lucas Sinclair, will be appearing on Saturday. Plus, Chester Rushing, who plays Tommy H., will be the host for the weekend! Stay tuned for more guests to be announced.
