In 12 angry men, a jury deliberates on the conviction or acquittal of an 18-year-old charged with the death of his father. As the audience watches the impassioned deliberations, they see the jurors learn more about themselves and their own morals and values.

Tickets for Evil Dead the Musical goes on sale at 10 a.m. September 15 on mhmtheatre.com. Tickets for the rest of the shows will go on sale approximately one month before opening night.
