The score from The Monster of Phantom Lake: The Musical! is a tribute to songs from the Golden Age of Broadway musicals, blended with popular music styles of the 1950s-60s, and influenced by sci-fi and monster movie music. A 14-piece orchestra accompanies the vocalists and underscores the action throughout this fun, campy “B-movie” musical!
