Superhero Academy: Environmental Adventure! (Play People Productions)

By | Published on Monday 8 August 2022

I mean, come on: what could be more wholesome? Say goodbye to your kid for an hour as they join in onstage throughout a noble and increasingly pressing quest to “SAVE THE PLANET!” All sorts of engaging, interactive hijinks ensue involving song, imaginative play, puppetry, props and even a quiz at the end to ensure you’ve been paying attention. And very lovely it all is, holding the attention of the youngsters throughout.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 24 Aug.
