Superhero Old Folks' Home opens Friday!

Katie McClenahan

If you caught the last puppet slam in October, you saw an excerpt from this show done beautifully on an overhead projector.  Now, the full interdisciplinary show is on for a limited run at the Echo Theater in SE Portland.

Inspired by comic book mythology and archetypes, Superhero Old Folks' Home is an action-packed, fun, and poignant look at a multi-generational family of superheroes.  It is as much as exploration of aging and family ties as a look at the meaning of what it means to be heroic.  The show features trapeze, aerial dance, acrobatics, PUPPETRY, and more!

Opens this Friday, Dec 9 and runs thru Dec 18th.  TICKETING INFO HERE!
