With great power comes great responsibility for GenZ, seeing as they are charged with saving the planet and humanity as we know it (whether they were consulted about it or not). SUPERHERO III: YOUNG SUPERHERO is an original comedy created by the ensemble and is filled with scripted and unscripted text, abstract vignettes, synchronized movement sequences, first-date awkwardness, and so many superpowers.  And of course, a Supervillain will be thwarted along the way.

SUPERHERO III: YOUNG SUPERHERO is brought to you by the winners of the official 2022 Denver Fringe Festival #FringeAF award for "embodying the true essence of the fringe." SUPERHERO III: YOUNG SUPERHERO, poetically attempts to answer the questions: What does a hero look like anyway? Can humanity enact a multi-versal escape to something better?
