Count Dracula has eyes to turn the Wollstonecraft castle into a fast food restaurant, but that’s not all he has his beady eyes set on. He plans to woo Mary and make her his bride, even if it’s against her wishes. It’s up to Mary’s dashing leading man Frankenstan to come to her rescue, along with the aid of his best pal the Zombuddy. But will Dracula, along with his own side-kick, Bad Bad Wolfie Brown, and his dissatisfied girlfriend, Vampiress be victorious? Will Frankenstan save the Wollstonecraft Castle? And will Count Dracula be put to rest once and for all?
Boogie Monster Mash follows along in traditional melodrama fashion as you cheer the hero, boo the villain, and wish for the heroine to triumph. Set to parodies of some of your favorite disco songs of the 70’s such as “Stayin’ Alive,” “I Will Survive,” and “Boogie Wonderland” the story is told by a lively trio called the Zombettes as they guide you along this horror-campy story while you fling plenty of popcorn at Count Dracula himself. Get your “boos,” “hisses,” and popcorn throwing arms ready for this monster, musical, melodrama!
