THE SUPER NON HEROES (Comedy)
Have you ever felt like you don't belong? Powerless Charlie sticks out like a sore thumb in a school full of superheroes. Smellinator can't control his powers and forgot to do his Villain 101 homework. Golden Boy won't follow protocol. And Toxic Sludge is, well, toxic sludge.
When a supervillain attacks the school Charlie must dig deep within herself. She may not be a superhero but she discovers her unique talents to save the day.
A fabulous play that looks at friendship, acceptance and discovering yourself. Who doesn't want to be a superhero?
TYPCAST (comedy) April 18th
TYPECAST: To cast a performer in a role that requires characteristics of physique, manner, and personality similar to those possessed by the performer.
The auditions for an upcoming production of Cinder White are underway and Ms. Thespis, the drama teacher, is greeted by a small group of students, each with a particular "look" and personality – the "diva," the "quiet girl," the "nice girl," to name a few. To Ms. Thespis, casting this show seems like a no-brainer. However, when she comes down with a case of appendicitis, Ms. Ball, the gym teacher, needs to step in and direct the show, mostly because she feels guilty for balding Ms. Thespis' pet ferret.
The other snag is that the students have all mysteriously been cast in the "wrong roles"- the "nice girl" is now the villain, the diva only has 2 minutes onstage, and the quiet, almost inaudible, "ensemble" girl is now playing a leading role with actual lines! As these characters awkwardly venture into unknown territory, they are forced to see themselves as more than their "type" and learn to, in the words of Ms. Ball, "play the roles they're all totally wrong for."
