Superheroes Assembly for Key Stage II

Superheroes Assembly. Our Narrator has faced some ‘mission impossibles’ in his time but a Superheroes Assembly without … Superheroes? Thank goodness there is always an Ancient Greek superhero around when you need him. But bringing out the ‘super’ in these particular heroes may prove too much of a challenge even for Hercules!

This assembly or class play is loosely based around Twelve Tasks of Hercules, taken on by a cast of phobia-prone and allergy-stricken ‘super’ heroes! Great playlist and great fun!

Cast of 30 – easily adaptable up or down. Duration: 15 – 20 minutes (without inclusion of music suggestions)

Superheroes Assembly. Sample Text:

Music 1 – Holding out for a hero – Bonnie Tyler

(Whole cast file in, in order of speaking, seating themselves along two rows of fifteen seats, facing the audience)

Narrator:         Good morning and welcome to

(Silence as Narrator waits for cast to respond – nothing but a couple of feeble coughs)

(Narrator turns round to face cast, speaking sideways on so that audience can hear)

Narrator:         What’s going on? Where are all my Superheroes?

Superhero 1:   Do you mean, us?

Superhero 2:   If you want a show of superpowers here today, you’re out of luck!

Narrator:         But why? What’s going on?

Superhero 3:   More a case of what’s not going on!

Superhero 4:   ‘Fraid we’re all recovering from colds

Superhero 5:   And not feeling in the least bit ‘superhero-ish’!

Narrator:         (Gasping) Oh no! So what am I supposed to tell this audience?

Superhero 6:   Come back another day?

Narrator:         No, I can’t do that! As you can see, they’re all here!

Superhero 7:   Well, sorry, but even superheroes have their off days.

Narrator:         (Desperately) But not, please, on the day of my assembly!

Superhero 8:   ‘Fraid so!

Narrator:         (Clasping head and groaning) Oh no! This cannot be! What a disaster!

Music 2 Greased Lightnin’ – Grease

(Enter Hercules, performing John Travolta moves)

Narrator:         Well, good morning! (Looking through notes in confusion) This is … er … a bit of a surprise!

(Hercules snatches notes)

Hercules:         Oh you don’t want to bother with those! Let’s go for a bit of good old fashioned spontaneity this morning!

Narrator:         Old fashioned?

Hercules:         Well, maybe a bit more than old. Make that, Ancient. (Pauses) Oh, and Greek!

Narrator:         You mean, Ancient Greek?

Hercules:         Exactly! And who better to represent that magnificent race – than myself, the great Hercules?

Narrator:         Wow! You certainly were a superhero in your time!

Hercules:         I’ll say! I could sure show this lot (pointing to cast) a thing or two!

Narrator:         (Heaving a great sigh of relief) Oh thank goodness for that! You could be just the superhero I need to save this assembly!

Hercules:         I’ll do my best.

Narrator:         Oh, but there’s the thing.

Hercules:         Thing? What thing?

Narrator:         Well, I gather you’re rather used to taking on challenges – single-handed?

Hercules:         (Bracing muscles) Correct! Nothing is beyond me!

Narrator:         Well, that’s amazing

Hercules:         I’m hearing a but ..

Narrator:         But

Hercules:         (Shrugging shoulders) I knew it!

Narrator:         I have to get this lot (pointing to cast) up and demonstrating their superpowers. It is meant to be their assembly, after all!

Hercules:         (Looking at cast and shaking his head) You are kidding me? Did you say (pointing to cast) this lot?

Narrator:         Correct. Fraid they’re not in the best shape at the moment!

Hercules:         (Repeating, incredulously) Not in the best shape? Make that, not in any kind of shape! (Sighing heavily) Oh boy! Have I got my work cut out for me this morning!

Narrator:         Oh, I’m sure it won’t be a problem for you! I mean, you can lead by example!

Hercules:         Meaning?

Narrator:         You can show them how it’s done – that is, being a superhero; and then they can follow! Easy!

Hercules:         You reckon? (Looking at cast) Let me tell you something. I don’t know about easy – I’m thinking, about as easy as climbing a mountain! And a very steep one at that!
