Pop/rock, fairy tale musical that follows the exploits of four high school friends on one fateful Halloween night. A strange substitute teacher reads to a biology class from Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein". The roomful of seniors includes the sweet, virginal Chloe who is determined to be a good girl until the 'right person' comes along. Her best friend, Edna, has long since realized that her love for Chloe goes beyond the affection typically felt between two best friends. Chloe's boyfriend, Thad, wishes to join a fraternity but the main requirement for joining Gamma Alpha Epsilon is that he must not be a virgin. And then there's Hairy - the pot smoking voice of reason. Much to everyone’s chagrin, the Halloween Dance is canceled. However, the foursome is invited to the annual Shocker’s Ball and all hell breaks loose when the Doctor arrives.
