On the night before the opening of the Vera Miles High School Drama Dept's production of Scary Musical, a gruesome double murder takes place. The school’s leading lady Drew Campbell and her understudy Eve are slashed to death. A bubbly new girl named Jamie Lee Leigh arrives in town, bearing a striking resemblance to the murdered Drew, and thus begins the competition for her replacement. We soon learn that a Crazy Mental Patient has escaped from the Hidden Secrets Psychiatric Hospital and all "musical" HELL is about to break loose as we follow Jamie and her new friends Norman, Carrie, Jason, and Freddy along with nosy reporter Leeza Courtney Fox and the escaped mental patient on a horrifically hilarious journey.
Drew Michelle Campbell – 17, sexy, entitled, with lots of attitude. All she cares about is playing the lead in the school musical.
Jamie Lee Leigh – 17, cheery, neurotic, and a little bulimic. She has two goals for the semester: to stay a virgin and lose five pounds.
Jason Cravin – 17, sexy, dangerous, and dumb. Captain of the hockey team. He is desperate to get laid… with anyone.
Norman Hates – 17, shy, quiet, and crazy. He is kept on a very tight leash by his domineering dead mother.
Freddy Louissier – 17, a hopeless romantic trying to write that one great poem for Carrie. Unfortunately she hates his guts.
Carrie Beige – 17, daughter of a religious fanatic. An outcast, she is deeply in love with Jamie. Carrie has a lot of issues to work out.
Leeza Courtney Fox – 30-40, host of Horrible Story. A cross between Nancy Grace, Mary Hart, and Charles Busch.
Mr. Macguffin – 30-40, flamboyant drama teacher / wrestling coach.
Teena Louise – 25-40, Leeza’s cam girl. Belligerent and terrified.
