This new play by Andrew Perry explores how children must face great challenges daily but can succeed with the help of loving adults and a great imagination.


Seth and his teacher mom are both heading to face their first day at a new school. Moving to a new place can be sort of scary but Seth’s Dad, who is away serving in the Army, has always taught him to be a real hero and to use his wits to turn scary times into fun times.


Seth quickly makes new friends but also faces the school’s bully. Armed with his bag of imaginative supplies, Seth soon saves the day and becomes the playground’s superhero!


Best for children in grades 2 to 5.
