Doomwatch Castle Musical

'A useful addition to the youth theatre repertoire' 
The Stage Newspaper

A virtual reality musical set in a computer, the Doomwatch Castle computer

It's Emily's birthday and she has been given the new must-have toy, the Doomwatch Castle Virtual Reality Game. With the Doomwatch helmets on, the magic can begin. Prepare to be transported with Emily and her brother to the virtual reality world of Doomwatch Castle where only the brave dare to go.

With the help of Mr Mouse, Emily and her brother George must search Doomwatch Castle for three skeletons who came to Doomwatch for a weekend break and have now disappeared.

They learn that there is trouble at Doomwatch Castle. Power mad Mr Keyboard, who is good at spelling, has changed the computer's curser  from a helpful little line to his evil helper. Mr Mouse is powerless. The children are on their own until C, the hardest disc in town, and the crazy Doomwatch characters come to their rescue.

Together they hunt the skeletons, from the dungeons of Doomwatch Castle, through its mysterious corridors to the attic. To their horror they learn that the skeletons have been sent to the recycle bin, the place where the computer's deleted files live until they are destroyed.

Sidekick Zoe, who knows the future, predicts that we must wait until the bats have flown, the Zombies walked and the Jitterbugs jittered, before all will be well, but is she correct?
