Halloween High School 2
It's one part Disney's High School Musical, one part iconic Broadway musical Grease, and one part classic movie monsters. Last year's production of Halloween High School played to sold out audiences--creating a sequel was a natural! The groovy ghoulies and Halloween High School faced demolition by a weird scientist named Dr. Strangeblood who wanted to put and end to the hallowed halls of the school he once attended. Meanwhile, his daughter Maryellen falls for the big man on campus, Frankie Frankenstien much to the dismay of his best girl, Virginia Wolf. Thanks to the determination of the students and a visit by the inspiring ghostly father of the school Igor Von Karloff, Dr. Strangeblood is not only convinced to let Halloween High School live on, but he vows to make it bigger and better! And that's where Halloween High School 2 takes off! The show is filled with the exhuberant, youthful energy of an all-singing, all-dancing cast. The songs and dances are bright and fun, with a big nod to the styles of the late 1950's. There's nothing frightening or scary here--its all fun and laughs with lots of surprises for audiences young and old to enjoy!
Pack your picnic basket with the tastiest, spookiest treats you can find---and have the kids come in costume for a great afternoon of fun for the entire family!
