How to Snag a Sea Monster
adapted by Mike Horner and Larry Mitchell

based on the Tall Tales of Stormy Stormalong

Length: Approx. 45 Minutes

After a monstrous wave washes a creature ashore, the people of a small Cape Cod town hear it wailing. Is it a sea monster in their midst? No, it's a baby as big as a house! The village adopts the giant baby, whom they name Stormalong -- 'Stormy' for short. Growing to over 24 feet, Stormy struggles to fit in, and chooses a life at sea aboard a clipper ship to find a place in the world.  Meanwhile, a bullying sea monster, the colossal kraken, torments the village... and only Stormy is big enough to save them all!
