Maleny State School’s 2014 Musical Spooktacular
What do Ghosts, Rock’n’Roll, Chains, Lullabies, Skeletons, Magic, Goblins, Dancing, Bullying and Friendship have in common? These are the essential elements of the Children’s Musical Spooktacular ‘The Haunted House’. This funny, fast paced, enchanting Musical delves into the issues and aspects of bullying with-in a social group.
The storyline which is set in an old creaky house known as ‘Gribble Manor’ explores the interaction between the four main ghosts, Gribble, Facefull, Idleboanz and Pandamoanium. From the outset one ghost’s bullying ways have made existence in ‘The Haunted House’ for other ghosts very unpleasant. With the help of the enchantress Atherielle, these inhabitants learn how to work together to encourage tolerance, respect, self-confidence and friendship.
