You'll know Shelby Meaney when you see her.
She's the one that keeps getting her clothes ripped off during Judy Russell's production of Evil Dead: The Musical.
The show runs from Oct. 23 to Nov. 2 at the Prince George Playhouse, with the first three rows designated the Splatter Zone - a first for a musical. And no, it won't be sparkly confetti that will be gently sprinkled upon the audience. It will be fake, gory, grossly-gushing blood.
The show takes all the elements of the cult horror film classics Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness and puts them all together with songs like What the ...@#k Was That? and All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons.
Comedic horror ensues when five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods and unleash an evil force that turns them into demons. Then it's up to housewares-employee-turned-demon-killer, Ash, to save the day.
Meaney, who plays Annie in the show, recently returned to Prince George after spending three years in Toronto, attending the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts.
Meaney did an intensive program for two years, graduating in 2012, and then she spent time as a struggling actor, working at a coffee shop. She was in a variety of plays including Hair and Sweeney Todd. She also performed in the Toronto Fringe Festival and the Toronto SummerWorks Performance Festival.
When Meaney realized big city life was not for her, she returned to Prince George where she teaches at Judy Russell's dance studio.
"I'm so happy to be back home and teaching full time," said Meaney, who is also a member of the local Nove Voce choir.
"When I saw the lifestyle of some fellow actors, I knew it wasn't for me. This is where I belong."
Meaney is going to have some fun with her role as Annie, thrilled that this is what she gets to come home to.
"I think this cult classic will offer something to people my age and anyone who loves theatre," she said.
You don't need to be a fan of Evil Dead to love this show, Judy Russell said.
"You don't even need to be a fan of musicals to love this show," she added.
"As long as you like having fun - this show is for you."
