For hundreds of of years, Sanguine Academy has existed to help train and educate vampires in all stages of their undead lives. It is a place where vampires from all over the world come to learn transmogrification, blood alchemy, vampire history and practical skills (like how to get out nasty blood stains). The academy exclusively admits vampire students ... until now. When the dean decides to integrates werewolves into the student body, the age-old rivalry between the two supernatural races explodes and new werewolf students begin to mysteriously disappear. Ellie and her crew of miscreant buddies called "The Midnight Snack Club" just want to party, but their carefree life comes to a screeching to a halt when Ellie accidentally turns an inept but well meaning nerd named Miles into a vampire. Now, Ellie has to keep Miles from (figuratively) sucking so he won't flunk out of Sanguine, while also trying to solve the mystery of the missing werewolves! This hilarious original musical finds that sweet spot where the supernatural school life of Harry Potter, the vampire life of True Blood and the relatable teens of The Breakfast Club meet. With a live band and an original score of wicked rock music, it's sure to be one FANGtastic ride!
