The Super Non-Heroes

The Super Non-Heroes

by Taryn Temple

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 her powers and forgot to do her 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 middle school play that looks at friendship, acceptance and discovering yourself. Who doesn’t want to be a superhero?

We had a great time with this play! The characters were fun and easy to adapt for the size of our cast. The lessons of friendship and everyone being able to do their part were well taught. The show was well-received by our audiences as well.

In this one-act middle school vignette play, characters come face-to-face with the fact that there are other people in their boat. Some are different. Some only seem different.

Why aren't middle school students full of smiles, hugs and hi-fives? They’re too young to have problems.
