Thomas B. and Kathleen M. Donnell Theatre
Wolfe Center for the Arts

Evil Dead The Musical offers a theatre experience that’s jampacked with groan-inducing jokes, campy violence, and ridiculous special effects. Audiences will not only leave the theatre humming songs like, “Look Who’s Evil Now” and “Ode to an Accidental Stabbing,” but, depending on their seating choice, they will also be exiting wearing some of the fake blood that will surely flow from the stage.

Tickets are available at bgsu.edu/the-arts/tickets.

To individuals with disabilities, please indicate if you need special services, assistance or appropriate modifications to fully participate in these events by contacting Accessibility Services at access@bgsu.edu or 419-372-8495. Please notify us prior to the event.

In The Round: Artistry, Activism, & Presence of Native Creatives

In The Round: a speaker series featuring Native American Creatives seeks to render visible—to the BGSU and local communities—the artistry, activism, and presence of contemporary Native American artists. This series is an extension of the recently-developed BGSU Land Acknowledgment, which provides a foundation upon which the university can build purposeful and sustained practices that seek to decolonize our institution.

In The Round features Native American creatives who work in the areas of the arts here at BGSU: Fine Art, Graphic Design, Music, Creative Writing, Film, and Theatre. The series offers opportunities to enrich the learning, experiences, and perspectives of all members of our campus and local communities. By engaging contemporary Indigenous and Native American Artists, this series challenges erroneous and harmful stereotypes that continue to permeate American society today. Exposure to the artists’ works and techniques through which they share their experiences, worldviews, and reactions to the cultural and historical moment in which we all find ourselves facilitates growth and dynamic learning opportunities for students, staff, and faculty.
