The Prep is thrilled to produce PSYKIDZ, an original musical by Prep instructor and multi-award winning composer/writer BOBBY CRONIN. We will utilize cutting-edge technology to create a musical digital film starring our talented Prep students.
SCRIPT & DEMOS:
Pre-teen Magnolia Donovan "sees things", much to the dismay of her father Leo. Along with her Nana, Magnolia & Leo head to an old inn in Vermont for a get away. There they encounter two families who have been chosen by world renowned psychic-medium Skylar Quinn to get specialized on-site training. After Nana convinces Skylar to let Magnolia join, the psychic kids develop their skills while helping a separated ghost family lost in the afterlife. To face her demons, Magnolia must believe in herself to exorcise the Shadow Man and, with the help of her new Psykidz friends, save the ghost family.
