2018 DAPA Youth Performances

WE%20ARE%20MONSTERS%20Title.jpg

Performances: February 9-10, 2018

WE ARE MONSTERS is a hilarious new musical that follows human kids into a monster cabaret filled with quirky monster characters. The adventurous humans uncover vegetarian vampires and rock n’ roll werewolves, gradually realizing there may be more to these monsters than meets the eye! Most importantly these monsters and kids discover the importance of friendship and celebrating in the attributes that make each of us different and unique. This production will be performed by local 6-9 year old actors with the Dakota Academy of Performing Arts at the Washington Pavilion.
