Melvin the monster is another year older but still not old enough for his license to scream. His birthday wish changes that and the Division for Monster Screams grants his wish on the condition of passing his test. Learning this new information can be difficult for Melvin and he sets off on a quest to learn with his friend Red the Rat by his side. Populated by a cast of friendly, colorful monster characters and original songs (a Green Day-style rocker, classical, jazz, pop, and Broadway standards), this a journey never to forget. http://www.theatreworksusa.org/show_detail.cfm?show=1569
