OSKALOOSA, IA — The George Daily Youth Theatre is happy to unveil the results of a seven-month long project: a 45 minute musical called “We Are Monsters,” rehearsed and performed by 22 Oskaloosa Elementary School students.

“The middle school and high school both have shows, but the elementary school didn’t have anything like that,” said Andy McGuire, the Education Director of the George Daily Auditorium. “The Youth Theatre wanted to create that opportunity similar to the other school programs so we held auditions in October and it’s totally free for students to participate.”

“We Are Monsters” is a fun musical about the annual Monster Cabaret, a place where monsters are safe to freely express themselves without any humans around. Four humans sneak in and uncover vegetarian vampires and rock n’ roll werewolves, realizing that the monsters deal with the same issues as humans. Featuring songs like “Werewolf Howl-Off” and “My Fangs Always Get In The Way,” the musical is a delightful romp about friendship and celebrating your unique qualities.

The cast features Avree Ebelsheiser, Annabelle Leonard, Isabella Stutting, and Brenna Deffenbaugh as Humans. The Werewolves are played by Elizabeth Burg, Aidan Krejci, Ruby Prendergast, Gretchen Krejci, Brianna Guild, Cadence Stutting, and Quinn Krejci. Zakkary De La Cruz, Breauna Fenton, Maddy Bihn, Arianah Edwards, Maysen Brunt, Chloe Fenton, and Melony Devvers Stull play the Vampires. Other Monsters are played by Alyssa Johannes, Kylynne Roberts, and Molly Prendergast. Chloe Mason is the stage manager.

Performances of “We Are Monsters” are at the George Daily Auditorium on May 10, 11, and 12 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for adults and are available by calling (641) 672-0799, online at www.georgedaily.org, or at the George Daily Auditorium box office.
