By Fr. Dominic Garramone and the St Bede Theatre Troupe.
Cast: 7m., 7w. (14 players, at least 7 w.) Stephanie's having a sleep-over with her friends when they are joined by her young cousin Melissa who can't get to sleep because she's afraid of the dark. But soon the monsters come out from under the bed and no one can get to sleep. As each girl describes her own personal fear, those fears come to life as Crumplebump (the funny noises monster), The Final Freak (the math test monster), Big Bad Boom (the thunderstorm monster), and several other terrifying creatures of the night. The girls help each other overcome their fears, and with some help from Stephanie's older sister Cathy and her monster friend Gruntable, the other monsters are banished. Conceived and written by a group of grade school and high school students, this play is sure to appeal to anyone who's ever been afraid to get out of bed in the middle of the night. One int. set. Approximate Running Time: 25 minutes.
