Lydia and her two best friends go on their annual retreat in the woods to work on music for their band. When an unexpected rift tears through their relationship, they accidentally create a magical creature that feeds off of fear and hatred. When reconciliation feels like the least likely good option, Lydia realizes there's only way to vanquish the monster: together. This presentation will include some songs and excerpts from this brand new horror musical.
