Emily has a sleepover with her best friend Stephanie when they discover there’s a monster in her closet! To investigate they recruit their friends to help capture the monster. What they don’t know is that Murray, the closet monster, doesn’t mean any harm. He only wants to play Emily’s new video game. He’s more scared of kids than they are of him!
When the Dream King hears that Murray is goofing off on the job, Murray is put on probation. It’s a fact that when a child is born, a monster is assigned to watch over them – not play with their things. Other wonderful entertaining characters include Sandy the Sandman and his dream weavers, Emily’s big brother and friends, and various inhabitants of the dream world.
Actors will be required to sing, dance and memorize lines. This may sound challenging but at Gateway Players Theater we strive to make every show fun for all. Check out YouTube videos of other productions of There’s A Monster in My Closet.
