Frankenstein vs the Horrendous Goo

Frankenstein vs the Horrendous Goo

by Treanor Baring

A mix-up in the chemistry club creates a horrendous goo that takes over John Dalton School. Students, administrators and even parents get “goo-ed” by this mysterious green slime with a mind of its own.

Who is behind the attack of the mutant polymer? Can the students disentangle the clues from what they’ve learned in chemistry, theatre and psychology class? Why is Frankenstein brought in to save the day? And why is he writing love notes?

Middle School actors and their audiences will delight in this fast-paced, action-packed comedy.
