Synopsis of the show:
“Shaggy” and his slobbery sidekick “Scoob” answer a mansion-sitting want ad (placed by the far right capitalist, “Professor Gigglepuffs”). Meanwhile: “Daphne” and “Velma ” learn that a local man who just escaped from a local prison, is heading straight for the woods! Jinkies! They set out on a rescue mission, baby! The entire gang ends up lost in the forest; left to face their fears, not to mention the local wildlife! You know, coyotes and cougars and incels? (Oh my!) Will they make it out alive? Scooby Doosical is a heartwarming musical-spoof about loyalty, love, loss and ZOINKS!
From the creator of the Sterling nominated Fringe hits: Rivercity the Musical, The Unsyncables, 5 South, and the award winning, Jesus Teaches Us Things.
