Book, music and lyrics by Sheldon Allman and Bob Pickett.
Cast: 7m., 12+ w. Optional chorus, Draculettes and grave robbers may be added. John David Wellgood and Mary Helen Merriman, both painfully naive, find themselves stranded near a medieval castle on the outskirts of Steubenville, Ohio. They ask to use the phone to call the auto club, but then the bridge washes out and they're stuck for the night. Soon they meet Dr. Victor Frankenstein, Igor, The Monster, Count Dracula and his wife Natasha, Renfield, assorted female vampires, The Wolfman and his mother Mom Talbot, The Mummy and his factotum Dr. Abdul Nasser and, of course, assorted villagers. The arrival of John and Mary precipitates a crisis as each of the characters wants John and Mary (or both!) for his or her own purposes. Dr. Frankenstein wants John's brain for his creation and tells why in the song, "A Well-Trained Brain." Igor feels he won't be using his brain so, in "Play Your Hunch," he says it might as well be transferred into John's body. Then, in "All Eternity Blues," Dracula reveals his plan to add Mary to his harem--while feasting on John. Mom Talbot bemoans her fate as the mother of a wolfman in "The Things a Mother Goes Through." Written by the creators of such hits as "The Monster Mash," this musical romp offers great opportunity for inventive set design, costumes and makeup while providing your cast and audience with just plain fun! One int., one ext. set. Approximate Running Time: 1 hour, 55 minutes.
