The rock musical, according to press notes, "tells the story of the Merrye family. Each member of the family suffers from the same degenerative mental disorder, which causes the loss of impulse control. When distant relatives learn of the family's condition, they attempt to institutionalize the Merrye children and sell their land. Spider Baby The Musical deals with the extreme measures the Merrye family takes to stay together."
The musical is presented by AFS Entertainment.
