Now and Then a Hero
Little Theatre, California State University, Northridge
April 15 & 16 at 7:30 PM
Based on true stories from this century and the last, Now and Then a Hero celebrates ordinary folks who do extraordinarily heroic things. With a blend of story and song, the characters address some engrossing questions about this concept which has has been central to the American culture since the founding of our country. What is a hero? Can it be defined? Has the definition changed over time? And does everyone… no matter how ordinary he or she may appear… have the potential within for heroism?
