October 1st, 2018 by Amanda with no comments

The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati will take audiences “up, up and away” with a SUPER season opener when they present SUPERMAN™ October 6-15, 2018 at the Taft Theatre.


SUPERMAN™ is the tale of the Man of Steel’s efforts to defeat a vengeful scientist, the new villain Dr. Abner Sedgwick, who seeks to destroy the world’s symbol of good. In this premiere adaptation of the 1966 musical, It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superman, this brand-new version is a comic book come-to-life. Geared to young audiences, this musical will be sure to soar up, up and away into the hearts of all children and the young at heart.

The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati’s creative team, theatrical licensing agent Tams-Witmark, and DC Comics have joined forces to adapt and premier a TYA (Theatre for Young Audiences) version of the 1966 musical It’s A Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superman (SUPERMAN™)

“We are 94 years young – and we still haven’t grown up!” said Producing Artistic Director, Roderick Justice.  “After two years in the making, we are thrilled to kick off our season with an exciting collaboration.”

President of Tams-Witmark, Sargent Aborn, states, “The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati had this wonderful idea to create a TYA version of “It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superman“. Tams-Witmark and the authors of the show are excited to see the results.”
