Something exciting is swinging onto the UMass stage this spring. It's your friendly local Super-Cool, Super-Awesome, Super-Hot, Super-Smart, Superhero…Webgirl!
During the day, Winnie is your average teen girl, living in the city with her Aunt Fay and Uncle Lenny, and trying to navigate the social chaos of high school. At night, she transforms into Webgirl, a web-shooting spider-hero, fighting crime and saving lives left and right, under the watchful (and sometimes critical) eyes of her adoring fans. When a new Villain appears, Winnie is called to action, and her life is turned upside down in a frenzy of TV cameras and unpredictable attacks. How will she learn to defeat the Villain, protect her family, and—through it all—be herself?
A side-splitting superhero parody, hilarious and full of heart, come let Webgirl save your world!
