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.

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.

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 a Star Trek convention 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's "Hard Act To Follow. Unfortunately, the rendition is so accurate that it raises doubts in the guests' 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 effect 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...

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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'."
