"...you will be laughing until your sides hurt with Harry's Hotter at Twilight." - The State Journal (Frankfort, KY)

"...my kids love this show! It is one of the funniest scripts I've ever read. And I've been at this a long time." Carla Simmons, Cheney High School (Cheney, KS)

In this crazed mash-up parody of the Harry Potter and Twilight series - with cameos crashing in from Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Alice in Wonderland and many other places - you'll encounter invisible rabbits, magical carrot weapons, random lunatics, soothing offstage voices, evil gourmets and much more, as everyone's favorite wizards, vampires and werewolves battle to save miserable, gloomy Spork - and indeed the world - from certain destruction.
