The Hero of EVERYTHING@the Silver Spring Black Box
Who needs a sidekick or a team when you can do everything yourself, and do it just the way it should be? Captain Everything, everyone’s favorite superhero, loves saving the day and doesn’t need anyone’s help to do it. Sure, she has an Alliance of superheroes, but no one minds if she just handles everything herself. Or do they? What happens when everyone else gets tired of being left out of everything and quits? And what happens when Captain Everything faces something she can’t do? Can she face her fears and cooperate with her team to save Citytown City? Or will it be too late?
The Hero of EVERYTHING is a fresh, fun, and interactive way for kids and families to explore the importance of teamwork and the perils of trying to do everything yourself, all by being part of the action of a superhero play for heroes of all ages. The interactive experience begins at before of the show, with pre-show activities and a brainstorming session among the actors and the audience – Let’s come up with some ideas for some brand new superheroes for today’s play, superheroes no one has ever seen before! – and continues after the show with opportunities for autographs and photographs with the actors. Parents come away with a discussion guide they can use to explore the ideas in the play with their children and continue the theatrical experience at home. Kids come away with an amazing superhero adventure, and an invitation to create adventures of their own to share with InterAct!
