The Daily Life of Superheroes
Two short plays
SUPERHEROES by Ian McWethy
Heroes Disassemble by Tobin Bates, Daryth Lennox, John Lennox & Harmony Taft
Directed by Dr. John Lennox
For superheroes, saving the world is tough, but the time spent away from work is tougher. The Hulk has to do taxes, a crime-fighting sidekick joins a support group, and Batman goes stir-crazy without enough criminals to take down. Both plays have funny, fast-paced vignettes that explore how the caped crusaders deal with life in street clothes.
Suggested audience: ages 10+
Wednesday, July 24 - Sunday, July 28
Three Fairy Godmothers
By Jerry L. Twedt
Directed by Paige Tufford
Princess Dulcie is so full of spiteful tricks that she has driven away all the princes. Three retired fairy godmothers arrive, eager to help. If they can sweeten up Dulcie, they will win back their wands. Prince Royal joins them. He has come to help the king but is in disguise lest he be trapped into marrying the mean princess. Exciting events follow as the godmothers try every trick in their fairy manuals.
Suggested audience: all ages
