The Belfast Area Homeschool Resource Center has announced the production and cast for its children's musical, “We are Monsters,” to be staged next month at the First Baptist Church.

“We Are Monsters,” by Beat by Beat Press, was a winner of the 2013 Children’s Musical Theatre Festival in New York City. The new musical comedy follows human kids into a monster cabaret. 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 important, these monsters and kids discover the importance of friendship and celebrating in the attributes that make each of us different and unique.

The elementary through high school Hairy Werewolves, Veggie Vampires, Gregarious Gargoyles and Humans will be played by Claire McConnell, Sean McConnell, Lili Reader, Jack Reader, Henry Reader, Jane Rubin Irish, Aiden Folsom, Annaleigh Folsom, Juniper Fowler, Willow Schachtner, Gabi Schachtner, Frankie Schachtner, Azure Walauski, Isa Lux Soc, Lilly Martinelli, Walter Martinelli, Charlotte Martinelli, Mirabelle Kutsy-Durbin, Piper Sander, Eva Burnett, Esme Deschamps and Capri Zaniboni.

“We are Monsters” will run Friday through Sunday, Feb. 9 through 11. For more information, send email to
