Directed by Marshall Pailet

Chances are, you've heard of the Loch Ness Monster? But have you met the lady herself? In this whimsical new musical co-written by Marshall Pailet and AD Penedo, a scientist’s young daughter discovers herself — and a small, magical, and very reptilian creature — on the waters of the Scottish Highlands. Loch Ness is equal parts cheeky comedy, heart-warming family drama, and uplifting musical journey.
