The History of Vampires in Colonial Pennsylvania
as Performed to the Music of Paula Abdul

It’s 1763 and there are vampires in Philadelphia.

Paula Abdul Blackwood is a beautiful young quaker girl being forced into marriage with the wheelwright’s son.

Jack Sheridan, a politically idealistic young vampire, is the man she loves.

Everywhere there is dissent. Fractious parties debate the future of the colony.

MC Skat Kat and Benjamin Franklin vie for power in the Assembly.

A touching, informative, and spooky musical hayride through fake American history, set to the music of Paula Abdul, as performed by the likes of CORN MO, THE O’DEBRA TWINS, JASON TRACHTENBERG, THE PIZZAS, and more. . .

Learn about the history of vampires in Philadelphia while crying because you are so moved by the plot in this staged reading of a new jukebox musical
from my sister’s dead friend.
