All humans know that monsters are scary, but a lesser-known fact is that monsters are NEVER, EVER scared. Then why is Jr. Monster afraid for his first day of Fright School? And can he find the courage to dare what no monster has ever dared? A monstrously fun, silly and surprisingly moving new musical for humans of all ages reminding everyone who struggles with fear and anxiety that they’re not alone.
