The Walking Dead is the biggest show on cable television, with a rabid fanbase that grows with each new season. The team behind Evil Dead The Musical count themselves among fans of the show, and have been hosting for The Walking Dead Viewing Parties for several seasons now in Las Vegas.
Presented by Fat Beard, this season’s parties are set to take a hiatus after the new Walking Dead finale on March 29th.
Called The Watching Dead, the viewing party will be at Shakespeare’S Grille and Pub, 790 Coronado Center Dr, Henderson NV 89052.
The Watching Dead Viewing Party starts at 8pm and continues until the last fan has gone home, typically around 2am. The entire event is hosted by Sirc Michaels and the cast of Evil Dead The Musical, who will be on-hand to take pictures with fans, give out prizes, host trivia, and more.
The Watching Dead is an experience designed with the Walking Dead and the show’s fans in mind. A variety of Walking Dead and zombie-related merchandise – much of it hard-to-find items – will be available for purchase. There are also added elements of entertainment including rounds of The Walking Dead trivia during commercial breaks, an ongoing raffle, and a costume contest.
“The Watching Dead Viewing Parties have become an institution here in Las Vegas,” said Sirc Michaels, producer and director of Evil Dead The Musical. “As a fan of Walking Dead, I can’t imagine a better experience than watching the episodes with other like-minded fans. It’s an entire evening of entertainment built around one of the most popular television shows on cable, for fans by fans, making this a unique experience you can only get in Las Vegas, hosted by the BLOODIEST show on the Las Vegas Strip.”
To ensure everyone can see and hear the episodes, the venue is equipped with state of the art sound and screens. The goal is to make sure there isn’t a bad seat in the house. Fans are encouraged to come early to claim their seats before the episode starts.
