MUSICAL COMEDY. In the murky depths of a Scottish loch, Priscilla, a teenage sea monster, yearns to leave her parents’ cold, dark, dingy lair and set out on a quest to discover whether the fabled “land-dwelling creatures” she’s heard about exist outside of sea monster lore. Horrified that Priscilla would want to leave the safety and comforts of such a wonderful lair with its abundance of silt, slime, and algae, Priscilla’s parents and granddad try to convince her to stay home and avoid the fate that befell her long-lost brother, Reginald, who mysteriously disappeared after he set off in search of the famous Loch Ness. Meanwhile, in the town of Kinlochleven, Campbell Steward hatches a plan to save the dying town and prevent the Toxoplast Corporation from building a toxic waste facility by cashing in on the Loch Ness Monster craze. This adorable musical features Scottish highland dancing and eight original songs that will delight audiences of all ages.
