It’s a big day for aspiring superhero “Water Boy.” Today, the principal of Hero Academy is interviewing him to find out if he’s ready to be super. But Water Boy doesn’t realize that the principal is actually his archenemy, a Superbully, in disguise. Will Water Boy fall into the villain’s trap and become a Superbully himself? Or will he learn to follow his conscience, and rescue his friend Donna from meanies? As Water Boy discovers ways to stop tough guys, your students will, too. They’ll be challenged to become real-life heroes by protecting their school from bullies. Over 10,000 students in grades K-5 have been impacted by a performance of Be the Hero! (Note: While the play is designed for elementary school audiences, it’s written to be performed by teen or adult actors.)
