The hysterical meets the historical in this comic romp through the wackiest wax museum in history! School’s out for summer, but not for six unlucky students (played by Dean Noe, Gavin Lawrence, Abby Bailey, Megan Newkirk, Julian Henn and Ashton Medrano) who don’t know much about history — they have to re-take the class in summer school. First-year teacher Heather Fairchild (Hannah Kircher) has arranged for them to help her two aunts (Kazia Bangemen and Madi Rose), along with their “maintenance man” (Skyler Phillips), set up a new wax museum as a class project. Though the students’ eyes glaze over with boredom, there’s a twinkle in the wax figures’ eyes when a mysterious incantation from the back of Cleopatra’s bracelet brings them to life! King Henry VIII (Shelton Twichell) finds himself smitten with Cleopatra (Jaylee Lovato) making his queen, Anne Boleyn (Nova Kelly) furious. When Calamity Jane (Chloe Fechner), The Sundance Kid (Eli Johnson), Blackbeard (Elijah Phillips), and a bevy of lady pirates (Raylyn Balduff and Madi Newkirk) show up, everybody’s out for one thing — treasure! Supposedly, there’s a mighty valuable one hidden in the museum. It’s a wild goose chase to find it, with a greedy museum landlord (Jazmine Paladin) and her bumbling son (Sebastian Phillips) joining in the mad search. The magic of history comes alive — literally!
