Evil Dead: The Musical  
Out Of Box Theatre at Artisan Resource Center Evil Dead: The Musical
This hilarious live stage show based on the cult series of Evil Dead films has all the campy fun of the movies and the added bonus of being set to music. This mashup of all three films tells the story of five college students who go to an abandoned cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash evil forces that turn them all into demons. This is a 4D experience, which means the front seats are the designated "Splatter Zone" and the name is not just for show. Even though general admission tickets are outside the zone, the guts and gore will be flying unpredictably, so keep that in mind when choosing your attire. The wild and gory theatrical experience returns to Marietta's Out of Box Theatre at Artisan Resource Center.
Four Old Broads  
Theatre in the Square Four Old Broads
Retired burlesque queen Beatrice Shelton desperately needs a vacation -- and not another trip up to Helen, Georgia, to see that "precious little German village for the umpteenth time." A Sassy Seniors Cruise through the Caribbean may be just the ticket if she can just convince her best friend Eaddy Mae Clayton to stop praying and go with her. Unfortunately, things have not been very pleasant at Magnolia Place Assisted Living since evil Nurse Pat Jones began working there. Beatrice teams up with newest resident Imogene Fletcher and soap opera-obsessed Maude Jenkins to put a plan in motion. A mystery unfolds with laughter as the gals try to outsmart Nurse Jones and figure out why so many residents have been moved to "the dark side," what exactly is that mysterious pill and what happened to Doctor Head? If they can solve the mystery, they may make it to the cruise ship after all. Watch these sassy sleuths dig for clues when Leslie Kimball's play Four Old Broads hits the stage at Marietta's New Theatre in the Square.
The Graduate

Re-live all your favorite moments brought to life by ACT3 Productions in Sandy Springs.
Jennie T. Anderson Theatre - Cobb Civic Center Newsies
They delivered the papers, until they themselves made the headlines! Disney's Newsies is leaping over to the Cobb Civic Center -- and now you can "Seize the Day" and score tickets to this crowd-pleasing favorite that The New York Times calls "a musical worth singing about!" Featuring a heart-pounding score by Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Sister Act: The Musical) and a book by Tony Award-winning playwright Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles, Torch Song Trilogy), Newsies tells the captivating story of a band of underdogs who become unlikely heroes when they stand up to the most powerful men in New York. Full of high-energy dancing and catchy tunes, it's a rousing tale about fighting for what's right and staying true to who you are.
Peter Pan  
Center For Puppetry Arts Peter Pan
Sprinkle your family with fairy dust and make your way to Neverland in this vibrant puppet play at Atlanta's Center for Puppetry Arts. This inventive adaptation of the beloved book by J.M. Barrie follows the adventures of Wendy Darling and her brothers as they rescue Princess Tiger Lily and battle the crooked Captain Hook with the help of the boy who wouldn't grow up: Peter Pan. Ever-inventive as they are, the folks at Center for Puppetry Arts tell this story with colorful sets and puppets that are brought to otherworldly life with black lights that make the puppeteers themselves virtually invisible. Animations projected onto screens -- as well as live, original music -- also aid in bringing the onstage world of Peter Pan to life. Your tickets to this delightful show also include entrance to the Create-A-Puppet Workshop, where children can make their own crocodile rod puppet to take home with them.

Affectionately known as Toxie, our new hero is a seven-foot mutant with superhuman strength and a heart as big as Newark. He's out to save New Jersey, end global warming and woo the blind librarian in town. It's a toxic love story with an environmental twist. This comical musical with a wailin' rock score will leave audiences laughing in the aisles as it rocks the house at Marietta's Lyric Studio on the Square.
