“…perfect for small children, with audience participation, appropriate kid-approved messages, a perfect hour run-time and catchy musical numbers” — LA Theatre Review

Action! Adventure! Romance! Ninja Koalas! Those are just a few of the elements that make up Super Sidekick, the brand new original children’s musical from rising L.A. playwright Gregory Crafts (Friends Like These). This exciting, heart-warming and inspiring play, with original music by Michael Gordon Shapiro, follows this dynamic duo as they track the evil Sorcerer Slurm to the Cave of Doom to rescue the Princess. The modest and hard-working Inky gets his moment to shine when the bumbling Blackjack also gets caught. Now he needs to save them both before they fall prey to Slurm’s Terrible Tickler in this hysterically funny, beautiful story of bravery and friendship.
