‘A Craig Hawes show is always a guaranteed hit at our school, but Superstan has to be his best yet! The superhero theme had every child hooked from the first read-through and they couldn't wait to rehearse! A brilliantly written script packed with hilarious jokes and slapstick and wonderfully catchy songs that children learn quickly and love to sing. The audience response was overwhelming, our parents were thrilled, so thanks for a "Super" show!’

Meet the world's newest, greatest and most unlikely Superhero in Craig Hawes' comical musical that's packed with muscle and marvel!
Stanley Marvel may be the clumsiest clot in Megaville but he's happy to read his comics and dream his life away. That is, until it's turned upside-down when he discovers that local hero, The Candy King, is actually a Super-villain determined to conquer the world with his corrupt confectionary! As the sugary charlatan and his mad minions enslave the citizens with hypnotic gobstoppers and a giant remote control, Stan knows Megaville is in need of a Superhero. But when his crazy Gran and her crumbly chums reveal an earth-shattering secret, Stan's shocked to discover his own true identity!
With a dose of secret formula and a pair of fantastic elastic anti-gravity underpants, Stanley Marvel takes to the skies as the greatest Superhero the world has ever known. Is it a bird, is it a plane? No, it's Superstan - a caped crusader fighting for truth, freedom and justice with his super powers, super tights and the strength to open a really tricky jar of pickles!
Can Superstan crush The Candy King and save the planet? Find out in this funtastic adventure as our hapless Superhero flies by the seat of his pants, faster than a speeding paper aeroplane, and learns that with great power comes great hilarity!
This marvellous musical packs a powerful punch with its witty script, crazy characters and spectacular songs, giving your cast and audience an unforgettable show that's quite simply ... SUPER!
Contains 42 speaking roles (can be easily reduced to 25 speaking roles if necessary) with any number of chorus parts (the ideal cast size is 54). Simple staging, very easy to costume and no problem props (see PDF "Sample Script" below for more details). Separate CDs of vocal and backing tracks (with essential sound effects) and Full Performance piano score also available. Suitable for Key Stage 2, ages 7 to 11.
A BRAND NEW product called "Sing it!" is available for this musical. This CD-ROM can teach the songs to the children without any teacher input. Children can use it at school or at home (think of the time it will save you!). Most schools use it in class on an interactive white board or in the school hall on the overhead projector to allow full cast practice. This latest version allows Lyrics on or off, Vocals on or off and the facility to practise one line at a time - all features are accessible instantly with one click. Children LOVE learning this way and the product is foolproof.

Another BRAND NEW product is the "Dance it!" Choreography DVD. Watch each song performed by a group of age-appropriate children in two different versions - a full speed 'Performance' version and a slowed down 'Step By Step' version with helpful narration to guide you through the dance. Introduced by Craig Hawes, the DVD is also packed with lots of handy hints for teaching dances. Absolutely no previous experience or expertise is needed.
Also available is a CD-ROM of Backdrops, which contains instant scenery with digital backdrops supplied in both a PowerPoint presentation and as individual JPG files. No more scenery painting! These images may be projected onto a screen or wall at the back of your stage or hand them to a local printer to print onto large boards or sheets in order to create your stage backdrops. They're also useful to print off for cast and stage crew to familiarise themselves with the sets and scene changes. The CD-ROM of Backdrops contains a different backdrop for every scene change.
Approximate Duration: 70-90 minutes
