Becky has dreams of becoming the star of a big musical and wants to audition for the upcoming Strange Hill High musical.

Unfortunately for Becky - and everyone around her - her singing is awful. But Becky won't take 'No! Please, no!' for an answer. Even the threat from her music teacher Miss Grackle, who tells her 'You couldn't sing to save your life,' fails to dissuade Becky.

It's a cold winter day, and as Becky falls asleep in class next to the radiator, she has an incredible dream in which she and her friends are pursued by a hideous musical beast called The Grackle. But is it just a dream? Dreams, musicals and reality all collide in this, Strange Hill's fantastical take on the musical genre.
