Someone is killing off the Drama Club of Vera Miles High School, everyone is a suspect and you decide who the killer is! Combining a slasher movie plot with a rock 'n roll score, pop-culture humor and an homage to classic horror film cliches, SCARY MUSICAL The Musical has all the elements of your favorite "Scary Movies" with an added twist - the teenagers sing and dance - before, during and sometimes after getting killed! The setting is the quiet coastal village of Hidden Secrets, USA. On the night before the opening of the Vera Miles High School Drama Dept's production of SCARY MUSICAL The Musical a brutal double murder takes place. We soon learn that a Crazy Mental patient has escaped from the Hidden Secrets Psychiatric Hospital and all "musical" HELL is about to break loose.
