Boomstick you will appreciate this - two years after the show, the Free Times (one of the local publications I write for) had its annual "Best of Columbia" party, which had a zombie theme this year.
Trustus, the theatre that produced Evil Dead, won for "best theatre," and so Michael Hazin, the Ash actor, dug up his costume:

That's great! Really good costume, too! Did he make that on his own, or is it common for actors to keep costumes that are made for them?

In this case, I think they just stored the costume away in a warehouse - costumes are often reused in other shows, and at Trustus, which only has c.135 seats, popular shows
are often brought back a year or two later for a second run, sometimes with the same cast. The props - chainsaw, rifle + holster - definitely were saved for future use.
The costumes for the show were done by a professional costumer... although by that I mean she got paid. She also acts, does make-up, and I believe arranges
Disney Princess parties for little girls. She was also in the show as ... whatever the archaeologist girl's name is who comes in in the second film.

As far as keeping costumes, it depends on the theatre and the show, since in modern dress shows sometimes actors provide their own clothes, especially in smaller, lower-budget
theatre groups. But Normally they just get stashed away for future use.

So a little film clip of the party can be found here, with a few shots of Ash in action.

I like the Ash vs Freddy going on there. Especially since there were rumors of that happening (or maybe just fans wishing it would) back in the day.

And indeed, Evil Dead the Musical is returning this weekend to the same theatre, with about half the original cast (including the Ash actor.)

Deadites always like to get their freak on, and when they get together, they Do the Necronomicon!


My review of the revival is at Onstage Columbia, and an edited-down version is at the Free Times. (So click on both of those and boost those hit counts.) :crazy:

And have I mentioned how difficult it is to review a new version of something you've reviewed before? You'd think it would be easy... unless you want to make a point not to repeat
yourself. I've had to do this more and more in the last year or two, with Twelfth Night, King Lear, Willy Wonka, and Harvey among others.
