Broadgreen ‘super non-heroes’ set to take the stage


Characters the likes of Wet Blanket, Golden Boy and Smellanator are set to entertain the crowd at the 2020 Broadgreen Intermediate production next week.

The show titled ‘Super non- Heroes’ is originally an American script that has been “Kiwified” by the cast of students, according to the show’s director Jennie Ricciardi.

The show is based around an intermediate school for students who have superpowers but don’t yet know how to control them.

“There’s really strong themes that come through and it’s really a story of belonging and friendships and negotiating those tricky things, but the strongest theme is about believing in yourself,” says Jennie.

She says, although auditions began right as lockdown hit, they made the decision the show would go ahead no matter what.

After suffering another setback to putting the show on, after Level 2 was announced, the cast is set to impress when they hit the stage on Wednesday 14 October.

“I’m just so impressed with the dedication from all of the students and staff, the crowd can expect to see a range of really funny original characters that the students have rescripted to include a bit of Kiwi slang.”

Tickets are available from the Broadgreen School office for a 7pm show on Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 October for $5.
