CHILDREN’S COMEDY. When Jana enters her basement science lab, she becomes “Dr. Noodles, scientist extraordinaire”! But just as Dr. Noodles is on the verge of a scientific breakthrough, her siblings―Maddie, Carter, and Ellie―accidentally spill a purple liquid in the lab, transforming Dr. Noodles into a hungry monster. But that’s not all! The potion also turns a cheese sandwich, a rubber chicken, a baby doll, a worm, a container of slime, and a Bigfoot statue into walking, talking creatures! As Maddie, Carter, and Ellie race to find an antidote to return everything back to normal before Mom gets home, a nosy neighbor and two detectives arrive to investigate the ruckus. Monstrously mindboggling, this children’s comedy is perfect for elementary students and is easy to stage.
