This exciting new musical for young actors adapts the children's novel The Phantom of The Auditorium by R.L. Stine as part of the beloved Goosebumps! series published by Scholastic. The story charts the adventures of middle school buddies Brooke and Zeke as they finally get the leads in the school play, but unfortunately for this duo, their dream show is cursed by a ghost. Zeke and Brooke, along with their cast mates and teachers must rise against the ghost to put on the scariest middle school play and reverse the curse!
This production was with local Nantucket youth and adult talent as a part of Dreamland Nantucket's education program. Dreamland's education program teaches young actors about their craft through the vocational experience of rehearsing and performing in plays and musicals for young actors and audiences while also incorporating local and visiting artists, and local schools to create comprehensive educational experiences through theatre for the community at large.
