Jesters - City of Heroes

Conceiving the script in early September, under constant bombardment of TV news about the U.S. presidential election and Syrian refugee crisis, the cast proposed some heavy themes, such as immigration, segregation, the role of the police, the media, and the idea of sacrifice. At the same time, many of the cast wanted to try out having super powers. Who doesn’t? Each cast member ultimately made their own choice whether to be a villain, a super hero, or an everyday person. They chose their super power and/or occupation. The plot grew organically from the characters and their jobs or powers. Much of the dialogue was written or developed by the cast during improvisations.
As a member of the audience, you have a super power, too: the power of imagination. Our heroes can’t do it alone. We need you to join us in the fight for truth, justice, and the American Way. Turn your clock back to 1949, just after the Second World War. The townspeople of Metro-City are feeling safe and prosperous under the watchful eyes of a team of Super Heroes who have taken up residence. What do they have to fear?

We're looking Beyond Our Limits!
HPUMC has one of the most vibrant special needs ministries in the metroplex, yet we have a nominal amount of square footage dedicated specifically to our special needs programs. Rather than limiting the phenomenal growth we’re experiencing, we plan to build a Family Activity Center allowing us to serve families and youth for generations to come.
