We Can Be Heroes

We Can Be Heroes

The Second City, is excited to present it’s Fall 2013 Mainstage Revue, We Can Be Heroes, an exuberant celebration of the unsung, everyday heroes living among us.

In this irreverent new collection of sketches and songs, The Second City’s acclaimed ensemble tackles threats big and small - from vicious sea creatures and suspicious packages to schoolyard bullies and the pesky critter lurking in a dark corner.

We also salute those who dare to stand up and raise awareness for a cause they may not understand, and perhaps can’t even pronounce. Like the brave young people who, without regard to personal safety nor personal hygiene, bravely press “like” or leave their upper lips unshaven.

Yet despite all these do-gooders, there are still far too many people in this world living boring, un-funny lives. Canada’s greatest band of comedy crusaders are ready to punch for what’s right with a night of bold, unapologetic laughs.

Written & Performed by:
Craig Brown, Jan Caruana, Stacey McGunnigle, Allison Price, Connor Thompson & Kevin Vidal

Directed by Kerry Griffin
Music & Sound Composed by Matthew Reid
