CARPS Bloodmoon Event 2022

Central Action Role-Playing Society
We are a high-fantasy LARP (Live Action Role-Playing) group that is currently based in Southeast Michigan. You may already be familiar with tabletop role-playing games (RPGs) such as Dungeons and Dragons or White Wolf products. If you are, the difference between an RPG and a LARP is that RPGs consist of half a dozen or so players sitting around a kitchen table with dice and a single Game Master, whereas a LARP is a cross between an elaborate theatre production, live combat, and a hike in the woods. LARPs such as ours have costuming, boffer weapons, and dozens of players whose actions influence not only what you can accomplish but the course of an entire fantasy world. If you aren’t, well, them’s the basics.

Greetings to all new and prospective players! As always, your first event is free, with a free rewrite should you decide you would rather play a different sort of character or have a different set of skills. (You must be 18 to play.)

Evil Dead The Musical at Stratford Woods Park 10/27-10/29

Book and Lyrics by George Reinblatt
Music by Frank Cipolla, Christopher Bond, Melissa Morris & George Reinblatt.

Based on The Evil Dead series of movies.

Several college students spend the weekend in an abandoned cabin in the woods, accidentally unleashing an evil terror. In this comedic take on the 80s horror franchise, characters and demons sing and dance to songs written specifically for the musical. And, as in the films, Ash is there to dish out his various one liners and fight the never ending army of deadites.

The musical takes creative liberty by merging the characters and concepts of the three movies into one story (main focus is on the first two in the trilogy), as well as changing sequences for the sake of stage and comedic intent.

You will be entering the woods at Stratford Park to join Ash and his friends in the cabin where the evil terror takes hold. There will be a blood zone where you will be covered in blood by the end of the show. These tickets will be up front and close! Make sure to check the special events listed for the nights performance; there may be costume contests, food trucks and other exciting activities going on at Stratford Park that night.

10/27 7-10pm
10/28 7-10pm
10/29 7-10pm
