For the first time--maybe ever--Madeleine, Theo, Lulu, and Garrison are not looking forward to the start of summer, and three little words are to blame: School of Fear. In what they're sure will be the longest and most terrifying six weeks of their lives, the foursome must face their phobias head-on as students of the exclusive and elusive school. There's no homework or exams. But if they don't conquer their fears by the end of the summer, they'll find out just how frightening failing can be.

Who would have thought being scared could be such fun? Four 12-year-olds whose phobias range from bugs to water go to the School of Fear for six of the worst weeks ever. They're going to get cured or die trying! Emma Hamilton's handling of these characters ranges from snarky to hysterical--and is utterly enjoyable. Scary PHANTOM OF THE OPERA-type music sets the tone for each nasty adventure the school has in store for them. Kids will laugh out loud at the machinations the four go through to avoid confronting their fears. The highlight of the production is Hamilton's energetic and cheerful rendering of each character--she makes their obsessions charming additions to their personalities.
