Rougarou - In rural Bayou Gauche, Louisiana, 11-year-old Sabine is furious when her grieving widower father, Dempsey, gets drunk and misses an Ash Wednesday mass. She pushes him to give up drinking for Lent to atone, and he happily agrees to placate her. However, when his grief becomes too much for him again, he breaks the vow, evoking the wrath of both Sabine and the ROUGAROU, a mythical bayou beast that punishes bad Catholics. To save her father, Sabine must go into the bayou to gather ingredients for a “gris gris”, a spell to undo the vow. Her attempts quickly go awry, and Dempsey must step up as a parent and come to the rescue -- but the dangers in the swamp are just the beginning. Together, they must defeat all the monsters in their lives, in order to survive as a family. The Invitation to Armageddon - A Steampunk Musical!
