The vampire musical parody was created and written by Ashley Griffin, with additional music and lyrics by Jeremy Ezell, Sean Mahoney, David Mallamud and Michael Sutherland.
Directed by Gabriel Barre with music direction Martin Landry, the cast features Colin Hanlon, Cortney Wolfson, Jenna Leigh Green, Jared Zirilli, Sara Jean Ford, Stephen Anthony, Michael Padgett, Tyler Maynard and Martin Landry.
Forever Deadward is described as a "hilarious, intelligent pop rock musical that lovingly takes a bite out of everyone’s favorite vampire series, and a few other pop culture icons along the way. The show playfully examines our culture of obsession and our obsession with the fantastical."
