THE STORY: Funny, Heartwarming, enlightening:
THE BEAST THINGS IN LIFE is about a group of monster friends, the "older," well-known monsters, i.e., Dracula, Dracula's Bride, Dracula's Mother, Frankenstein, the Mummy, the Werewolf and the Vampire, a newcomer, trying to find their way in life, personally and professionally, i.e., looking for love, acceptance, friendship, success, etc. They enter a favorite monster contest, sponsored by STSANY, and win against the "new" monsters of the day. At the same time relationships are formed among them, as others go through trials and tribulations, but ultimately work out to a happy ending for all. They learn a lot about how to get along with each other, work out their problems, discover their talents and make decisions about what they want to do with their lives. And they learn the value of friendship, loyalty, love and tolerance. They are somewhat scary but friendly "monsters" with human emotions, desires, hopes and fears.
Several STSANY* members are in the cast and on the staff:
