Bizarre, anarchic and very funny, this Rock 'n' Roll musical is a riotous mix of the Addams Family, Young Frankenstein and Phantom of the Opera, with Rebecca and The Rocky Horror Show thrown in for good measure!

Baron Frankenstein's descendant, and ex-pop star turned professor of Genetics, creates DNA moulds of people in his computer. How these moulds come to life as the ultimate Rock Group, headed by a clone of Elvis himself is the highlight of the hilarious plot.

More traditional monsters also add spice to the explosive mixture. Staff, cast and audience will love the Rock 'n' Roll score, much of which is an affectionate send-up of the 60's. With some 20 principal parts including many splendid female roles, there is also plenty of chorus opportunity for maximum pupil participation. Schools with a good Rock Band will want them to get in on the act.

From the writer of the hit shows 'Ebenezer' and 'The Dracula Rock Show'.

‘Evolution’ opens this dramatic performance and the narrator follows by briefly setting the scene. Dan and Rebecca, the newly hired assistants to Professor Fenton enter and have an unusual encounter with the Stationmaster at Arkham Station who does not have pleasant things to say about Professor Fenton’s castle.…

We then move inside the castle where the audience is introduced to Mrs Danvers, the housekeeper, the servant Igor, and Gloria, the Professor’s charming daughter. Unsurprisingly Gloria is fed up with being cooped up and shares her gloom in ‘Looking for Action.’

Dan and Rebecca arrive and Gloria makes a beeline for Dan - (maybe she has found something to keep her entertained?) Professor Fenton enters to ‘Professor of Rock’n’Roll’ which even gets the narrator bopping along! A flashback follows which explains how Professor Fenton came to inherit the castle.

Scene 3 takes place in the laboratory and Fenton explains his work to his assistants. What follows is completely unexpected as a flash of lightning brings his work to life-literally! ‘The Flash Crash’ follows.

As the narrator moves the action to Arkham Village Hall, the villagers are gathered together discussing the castle, determined to convince an Inspector that it needs to be shut down. Eventually, they succeed (albeit with not very firm evidence) and the Inspector is convinced there is a case to investigate.

As Fenton explains his plan to bring his rock group back to life, the Inspector calls (excuse the pun) and the inhabitants of the castle convince him that they are enjoying the Starship Enterprise which explains the interesting state of the castle...Fenton then offers to throw a concert to socialise with the villagers and we get a taste of what’s to come with ‘Supergroup.’

The concert follows, and there is a complete change of mood as the villagers thoroughly enjoy themselves at the castle ballroom. The Superbs sing ‘Lady Love’ which is followed by a rendition of Elvis’ ‘Hard Act To Follow.’ Unfortunately, the rendition is so accurate that it raises doubts in the guest’s minds and the Inspector becomes suspicious. Yet in an even more dramatic twist, Elvis and the Superbs are frozen immobile when a blast of lightning hits them and the affect of flames follows, setting the castle on fire, destroying Fenton and his monsters.

In the following scene Rebecca and Dan discover that Fenton was indeed Frankenstein (which I’m sure you will have guessed) and although Mrs Danvers survives the fire, in a terrible twist Rebecca and Dan have a last minute toothy situation to deal with...

Fantastic Show.

Fantastic show - great songs and characters with lots of opportunities for dance, song and drama.
Review by Havelock School - Northamptonshire.

One of the best musicals we have done.

Children, staff and parents loved this show. We even borrowed coffins from the local undertaker! One of the best musicals we have done.
Review by Kirklevington Primary School - Stockton On Tees

Really good and funny play!

I had the lead role as Fenton, and I really enjoyed acting it out and watching the other actors perform. The audience found the play exciting and enjoyed the corny jokes and storyline. It was a really good and funny play! Highly recommended.
Review by Gemma C - Cast Member - Cottam Primary School.

Great production!

This is a great production and we will remember it for years to come! This is a truly great production! Also, it's a lot of laughs !!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Review by Emma,Hannah,Grace - Cast Members.

Funniest play I've staged!

The funniest play I've staged in a Primary School. Real coffins and a touch of dry ice worked their magic! Elvis went down a storm as did pink wigs for "The Superbs!"
Review by St. Minver Primary School - Cornwall.

Definitely worth doing!

We performed "The Rocky Monster Show" with an exceptional year 6 group last year and it was a WONDERFUL experience! It was especially perfect for the more quirky members of our class and it is definitely worth doing!!!
Review by Sarum St. Pauls Primary School - Wiltshire.

Best response from parents that I have ever known.

I just want to let you know that my production of "The Rocky Monster Show" in April received the best response from parents that I have ever known.
Review by Stagecoach Abingdon.

Fabulous play.

Just seen this fabulous play at Laceby Acres Junior School. My grandson Brayden Albery played the monster Mungo. It was brilliant and most enjoyable.
Review by Eleanor Albery - Grandma!

The experience overall was thrilling!

This was sooo.... much fun to work on, and I'm really pleased I did get involved! It had the odd flaw of dancing with a boy, but the experience overall was thrilling!!
Review by Grace - Cast Member - Highfields School.

Encore, Encore!

They actually shouted this for us!!
Review by Scott - Cast Member.

The Best Play Ever.

"The Rocky Monster Show" was acted by us Y6's at our school. Everyone who watched it said it was the best show they had seen in years. One in a Million Show!
Review by Charlie - Cast Member.

Excellent backup.

Co-produced this show with 11-year-olds. Absolutely wonderful -excellent parts for the highly talented and less talented. Clever, amusing and hugely enjoyable.
Delighted that we could speak to Musicline directly for advice and discussion. They were so willing to be flexible which meant we could have one or two minor adaptations and additions to make it 'ours'.
Review by Em - Producer.

Best school play I have ever been in !!

There is really nothing else I can say other than, it is the best play ever.
Review by Nelly - Cast Member.

Hard act to follow!

This play was one of the best I have seen! The script is accommodating for all the year's many talents - singing, dancing and acting with lots of humour.

The King is dead! long live the king (my son was Elvis!)
Review by fimac

Brilliant Show for Year 5 and 6

We performed this show in July 2009. It was a great show for a lively Year 6 with support from Year 5 pupils. Many speaking roles and opportunities to dance to lively tunes. We had a pianist but the backing CD helped us learn the songs easily. We added lots of scarey sound effects to the show and had amazing costumes and scenery. We even made our own coffins for the show. I would recommend this show to any teacher. I'm not a music/drama specialist but it was an easy show to understand and manage. Funny script ! Lots of variety. Good for boys and girls.
Review by Key Stage 2 Teacher - Castle Primary School - Tiverton - Devon

Fantastic Show !

Put on this show with Year 6 last July and it was fabulous! There are a variety of characters to appeal to all children and plenty of scope for additional scenes & characters. (we even included the famous 'Thriller' dance for our ghouls) The scenery & props were quite easy to put together, and with effective costumes, it was a visually stunning show. The music isgreat & the children loved the songs.

It is a very manageable play - we actually only cast this show 18 days before the performance and the audience nearly took the roof off at the end. A highly recommended show... now we have to follow that this year!
Review by Deputy Headteacher Cardinal Newman Primary, Hersham

Amazing

Great fun everyone enjoyed it and got involved.
One of the best plays I have seen.
Review by Lucy , Stanbridge Primary School , Downend (Bristol)

Excellent show

Thank you for this wonderful production; it was ideal for the Year 6s at the end of the year. There's lots of dry and mature humour in it and plenty of opportunities for dance and song so it appeals to all ages. Lots of positive feedback from cast and audience. Highly recommended by Miss Jones.
Review by Dulverton School, London

Wow...

I played Rebecca and LOVED it! Got 3 encores and the audience loved it. Easy to stage and definitely recommended!
Review by Sophie, Cast member, Newton Longville School

FAB!!!!!

I play Fenton and this is definatly the best school play EVER!!!!
Review by Alys Roberts, cast, Anston Greenlands School, Rotherham

Excellent

Even though i didn't receive one of the main parts I still love this playscript.
It was great fun for me and my friends.
One of my best friends recieved the part of Rebecca Shelley. I am so proud of her and so are my friends.
I am the batty girl and I dont have many lines but i am cool with that because at least my friends have the part they were hoping for.
All in all I think the play is 'off the hook'! It is the best play to do for your leavers production.
Katy
Review by Katy Davis, Brightside Primary School, Billericay, Essex

Best Fun Ever!!!!!

As a new Performing Arts Teacher at school I wanted to do something completely different well I couldn't have picked a better show. The Rocky Monster Show caught the imagination of everyone from Prep to Year 6. Rehearsals were stress free as the kids couldn't wait to rehearse. Songs were easy to learn and really catchy and creating parts for over 200 was easy. All in all it was a magical night. The parents and kids haven't stopped taking about it and can't wait for next years production.
Review by Kananoook Primary School Seaford Victoria Australia
