ANDREW ROPER'S SUPERHEROES FOR KIDS
BECAUSE WITH GREAT POWER COMES GREAT SILLINESS!

Any show about Superheroes attracts kids, and so it should. But the original “ Superhero Secret Origins " wasn’t really aimed at younglings.

This one is. Direct from debuting to Sold Out shows at this years Edinburgh Festival, Superheroes for Kids is the same celebration of Comic Book Superheroes as the adult version, just with a lot more silliness.

It's a superhero education! Bring your capes!

Games, quizzes, songs and spectacular super nonsense. Dressing up is encouraged, and parents will learn important stuff about Superheroes!

"Andrew Roper’s Superheroes for Kids includes a lot of superhero geekery that will appeal to any child obsessed with Marvel and superheroes, lots of spontaneous funniness... There’s no sexism, girls are superheroes as much as boys are. A perfect show for 5-12 year olds, especially, but not exclusively, those who love superheroes “ PrimaryTimes.net Edinburgh 2016

ANDREW ROPER - SUPERHERO SECRET ORIGINS
SUPERHERO SECRET ORIGINS - The interactive comic book knowledge bomb. Part stand-up, part lecture, part madness, all superhero! This year's show is a Wonder-full look at "Women in Comics!" Direct from Edinburgh 2015 & 2016.

Here’s a presentation full of things you thought you already knew. As much about the creators and the times as the characters, it’s a show for geeks and novices alike.

This year - WOMEN IN COMICS!

"Women in Comics" tracks the history of female Superheroes (heroines?) from the 30’s to the present day. A lot has changed… And a lot hasn’t. With Wonder Woman about to hit the big screen, now is the time to tell the full story, and what a story it is!

"His enthusiasm for the subject matter is infectious and his level of knowledge is staggering, if you even have a passing interest in comics and superheroes or the latest comic book movies then you should definitely check him out" ★★★★ Shortcom Edinburgh 2016
