The original cast recording of “Wanda’s Monster: The Musical”
Laurie Berkner wrote the music and lyrics to this delightful musical, “Wanda’s Monster”, based on the children’s book of the same name by Eileen Spinelli. “Wanda’s Monster” marks Laurie’s first time writing music for a musical, and was produced in NYC by Making Books Sing. It will be playing at the Vineyeard Theatre July 13th-September 8th 2013!
Wanda, a spunky 5-year-old with a vivid imagination, is convinced there’s a monster in her closet. Granny agrees, and contrary to Wanda’s expectations, convinces Wanda that "Monster" is in her closet because he is shy and friendless, not because he’s scary. With Granny’s encouragement, Wanda befriends "Monster," turning a potentially fearful situation into a lesson in acceptance and friendship.
The show is filled with Laurie's catchy new songs and features a brand-new version of “Monster Boogie” - one of her all-time hits. While Laurie doesn’t perform in the show, you will fall in love with the extremely talented cast who perform her music.
